Welcome to Year 2 and the start of the Autumn term. We are all really looking forward to an enjoyable year.
Curriculum Coverage This half term our theme is ‘Ahoy There’ and the second half term it will be ’Time Travellers.’ Please see our curriculum coverage on the school website within Year 2 and also on our Teams page.
Who’s Who in Year 2? The Dolphin Class: 2RM…. Mrs Ray, Mrs McQuilken and Miss Reid The Angelfish Class: 2L… Miss Lempriere, Mrs Churchill and Mrs Wademan The Stingray Class: 2M… Miss Morris, Mrs White, Miss Hann, Mrs Rose and Mrs Kritzinger
Looking Ahead Every day is a learning day and please could we remind you that the summer term is very important for your child. At this present time, the children will be undertaking end of Key Stage 1 Standard Assessments tests and tasks (known as SATs).
Expectations We hope that your child will enjoy their time in Year 2. One of our priorities is to develop the children’s independence and attitude towards work. So therefore, the children will be working at a faster pace and be expected to use their initiative.
PE: PE days in Year 2 are on Mondays and Tuesdays. On these days your child will need to wear their PE kits to school. Long hair will need to be tied back and pierced ears will need to have surgical tape covering the earrings.
Homework and Spellings The Homework routine will follow the same pattern as Year 1. It will be weekly via your child’s Microsoft Teams page. Your child has a week to complete their homework. It will be set on a Friday and will need to be ‘turned in’ the following Thursday by 5pm. Year 2 spellings will also be sent weekly using our Class Teams page. There will be dictation, using these spellings, every Friday.
Please, please, please… could you label everything that your child brings to school. It is almost impossible to tell one jumper from another! Please could we ask that your child uses a sports top plastic bottle rather than a metal one.
And finally a date for the diary… On Friday 21st October, we are having a ‘Pirate Day’. Please could your child come to school dressed as a pirate on this day as this would be a great finale to our theme – when we get there! Please don’t worry too much about any extravagant costumes: a stripy t-shirt with a scarf tied around their head, trousers and an eye patch will do! No swords, muskets or pistols please.
Thank you for your support,
The Year 2 Teaching Team.
