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’ (Geography) and the second half term it will be ’Time Travellers’ (History). Please see our curriculum coverage on the school website within Year 2.
Who’s Who in Year 2 The Dolphin Class: 2RM…. Mrs Ray, Mrs McQuilken and Mrs Wademan, Mrs Churchill and Mrs Loy The Seal Class: 2MA… Mr. Mason, Mrs Kritzinger and Mrs Marshall The Stingray Class: 2M… Miss Morris and Mrs White
Expectations We hope that your child will enjoy their time in Year 2. In line with our school values, our priorities are to develop the children’s independence, resilience and attitude towards work. So therefore, the children will be working at a faster pace and be expected to use their initiative.
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 20th October, we are having a celebration of our learning theme day ~ ‘Ahoy There’! Please could your child come to school dressed related to the theme for example, a seafarer or sea explorer, a mermaid or merman, a famous ocean explorer or a pirate (no swords or muskets please).
