Great Year 2 learners

Thursday 08 September 2022

The children have settled really well in their first few days in Year 2 with lots of new routines to learn!

We look forward to meeting you over the next few weeks but for now, here is some key information about Year 2.

Adults

Mrs Taylor – Monday and Tuesday

Mrs Lake – Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

Teaching assistant – Mrs Roth

Important days and dates

PE – Tuesday and Thursday

Spelling test – Friday

Homework – to be completed by the following Thursday

Class assembly – Wednesday 19th October at 2:40pm

Water bottles

These should be brought to school daily and they will be brought home every day for refreshing and cleaning.

Milk

Please contact the office if your child would like to have milk in Year 2.

Homework

Whole school homework is set every Friday (along with new spellings). This week your child will bring home a homework book and guide. This should be kept at home and it can be used for practising spellings. Homework and spellings can also be accessed from the website.

Reading

Your child will be bringing home a letter explaining about their reading.

Lexia

In Year 2, the children can access a reading/phonics online learning resource called Lexia. The children brought their login information home this week and it is great to see so many children have been accessing the resource already! Lexia certificates will be awarded every Tuesday if your child completes a level (by the end of Year 2, the children are aiming for achieving Level 9).

Numbots

We continue to use Numbots in Year 2 (using the same login as Year 1) and certificates will be awarded every Tuesday for children who earn the most coins and who complete the different stages.

For reading, Lexia and Numbots, little and often (10/15 minutes a day) is recommended.

Uniform

Please do check the uniform policy to ensure your child is wearing the correct items including for PE days. Earrings must be removed on PE days.

Finally, please do ask if there are any queries and keep checking back on class news to find out more about your child’s learning!
