Year 2 2023 - 2024
Learning Support Assistants:
Welcome to Year 2
Thank you for visiting our page. Here you will find information on timetables, homework and details of your child’s learning (on the additional tabs). If you have any questions, you can arrange an appointment by contacting the office. We hope you have had a lovely break over the Summer and are ready to start an exciting term in year 2!
Please ensure children complete the following homework weekly:
Spellings – Once the children have settlerd into the new term, some children will continute with the Read Write Inc programme and some will be covering spelling patterns/rules using the ‘Pathways to Spell’ scheme. Your child will bring home a spelling rule sheet every Monday with examples of spellings they will be taught that week in class. Please explore these patterns/rules with your child and investigate words which follow this rule. They will also be given two ‘topic’ related words to learn as well as two ‘High Frequency’ words which they need to know by the end of Year 2. These will be personal to your child according to their needs. They will then be tested every Friday morning.
Reading – Children need to read their RWI or levelled reading books at least 3 times a week at home for around 15 minutes. We would expect for them to finish the book they are given within the week so that they can be changed every Friday. If your child does not finish their book, they will need to wait until the following Friday to have it changed. Reading records need to be signed by an adult, including the date and numbers of pages read. If your child has finished the book, please indicate this so it can be changed.
We also encourage children to read books for pleasure with you at home. These can be borrowed from school or can be books/magazines you have at home. Reading before bedtime is a lovely way to wind down after a busy day and allows for precious bonding time with your child. Please let us know what books your have enjoyed reading together using the book list pages in your child’s reading record.
Times Tables – Children are required to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables by the end of Key Stage 1. Please access Times Tables Rockstars and/or Numbots to practise these (Links in the 'Maths' tab). This knowledge will support them in their arithmetic skills ready for Year 2. If you need a reminder of your child’s login details, please ask a member of staff and we can send this home.
PE – Children will have PE every Thursday afternoon with Mr Seary whilst Mrs Bonney has PPA time. Please come in to school wearing PE kits on this day according to school policy.
