Welcome to Year 2
In Year 2 our aim is to ensure that the children experience a smooth transition from the Year 1 to Year 2. The Year 2 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Reception and Year 1. Please look at class pages for more information to support your child and for photos and information about your child’s learning in school.
Here are a few things you might like to know about our year group.
What will the children need in school?
Everyday each child should bring to school their book bag or a small bag containing their reading record and reading book. Reading diaries will be checked every day and books changed once they have been completed. Please ensure your child reads to an adult every day at home and that the reading diary is signed.
Each child should have a named water bottle.
PE is on a Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit.
Home Learning is given each Tuesday via the Home Learning exercise book
Weekly spellings are handed out on a Tuesday and tested the following Monday. Please make sure you bring your home learning book to school on Monday.
Daily reading We aim to read individually with the children as much as possible and all children read daily in class during class activities. Please read daily with your child at home.
Daily ten is a useful website we use in class that help children with their mental maths and practising the four operations
Children also have their own passwords for Doddle Maths which is website tailored to their current level in maths. We encourage the children to access this at home as well as in school once a week.
