Welcome to Year 2!
We have 29 children in our class. Our class teacher is called Mrs Yates and our teaching assistant is called Mrs Sargeant.
P.E takes place on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure the P.E kits are in school for our P.E sessions.
Homework will be given out every Friday, to be completed by the following Wednesday. This could be a maths or grammar task, times tables practise or additional high frequency spellings. Spellings are also tested weekly, on a Monday morning. Spelling lists are sent home on a Monday, to be learned for the following week.
Year 2 children are encouraged to become independent readers and are able to change their own reading books after their reading record has been signed. We have ERIC (everyone reading in class) for 15 minutes everyday. On Friday, this will involve children reading to a Y5 reading buddy. Children will read every week to an adult; beginning with 1:1 reading and alternating with guided reading as children become more confident changing their books independently. The rest of the time they will read independently, with a teaching assistant or volunteer. Reading books should be brought in everyday.
Throughout the year, we learn through a topic-based curriculum. Our teachers provide opportunities for us to go to various places of interest or have visitors in school. Please find below the link to our current topic web and any class letters.
Feel free to call in to see our teachers if you have anything you would like to discuss.
