Welcome to Year 2 and the start of the Autumn term. We are all really looking forward to another successful and 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 Jellyfish Class: 2C… Mrs Cryer and Mrs Clark The Stingray Class: 2M… Miss Morris, Mrs Loy and Mrs Grinsell The Seal Class: 2MA… Mr. Mason and Mrs Wademan
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). We are awaiting announcements from the Government regarding 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.
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.
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… We are delighted to be able to tell you that we will be having a ‘virtual visit’ from the pirate, Captain Black, and his drama workshop on Friday 22nd October. 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 continuing support,
The Year 2 Teaching Team.
