Welcome to Year 2! This year marks the end of your Key Stage 1 journey, getting you prepared for all that’s new and exciting in Key Stage 2.
We hope you enjoy your time in Year 2; there’s lots of fun and exciting things to learn and we look forward to supporting you on this journey.
Below are a few helpful reminders to make this year as successful as possible:
P.E: P.E. lessons will be on Wednesdays. P.E. kits should include suitable foot wear (trainers or plimsolls),
t-shirts, (in their house colours) and blue shorts or plain dark-coloured tracksuit bottoms. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school each week.
Homework: Each term, your child will receive a home learning grid which has a variety of different activities for them to choose from. We would love for them to select one activity each week and bring it in on Thursday. Home learning will be celebrated in merits assembly on Friday.
Spellings: Spellings are handed out on Friday. Children have one week to learn their spellings. Please make sure their spelling books are brought back in each Friday for their new set of spellings.
Times tables: Children in Year 2 need to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables, in order, at random and the inverse facts. E.g. 15 ÷ 5 = 3. Please practice these at home with your child.
Reading: Children need to read every night. Parents should write a comment in their child’s reading record each week.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please make an appointment to see us.
