Attendance Matters - Each week we are expected to have a whole class attendance of over 96%.
Your attendance is very important! You must be at school every day at 8.30 am. Our first lesson begins just after 8.45 am so you need to be here, ready for a fun-filled day of learning!
Timetable: We begin each morning with reading - this is the time your child will change their home reading book if necessary. Then we have an in-class assembly, English and Power Maths lessons before lunchtime.
In the afternoons, we study the foundation subjects such as Art, Science, History, Geography, Music etc.
We finish every day with a story.
Reading: As well as reading regularly at school, children are expected to read as often as possible at home too. This might not always be your reading book, but reading diaries can still be signed so children can move up the Reading Challenge! This is especially important in Year 2 to support their progress through KS1. Children should have their book in school every day.
It's also important to make time to share stories together as this has been shown to increase your child's wellbeing and academic success. Have a look at the 50 Recommended Reads for Year 2 if you're stuck for ideas on what to read at home. CLICK HERE for the full list of books.
Spellings: Children will be given spellings to learn every week. It is important to practise them regularly so they are ready for their spelling test on a Friday. Spellings for the week are uploaded to Spelling Frame every Friday - this is a fun, interactive way for your child to practise their spellings. If you have lost your password, please ask us and we can send it home again.
Homework: Homework will be set online this year and is accessed through IXL. It will be sent out on Fridays to be returned the following Wednesday. If you need your login sending home again, just ask.
Times Table Rockstars: In Year 2, all children have access to Times Table Rockstars. https://play.ttrockstars.com/
Login details will be stuck on the inside of their reading records. Please log on and practise as much as you can. Quick recall of times table facts is important when working mathematically.
PE: We have two PE lessons per week on Tuesday and Thursday. Our PE kit is a white PE top, tracksuit bottoms (no leggings please), trainers, socks and a waterproof jacket/coat. Please come to school dressed in full PE kit on a Tuesday and Thursday.
