Year 2 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 2!
Year 2 are taught by Mr. Davenport and their teaching assistant is Mrs Brayford. We will be covering a wide range of history and geography topics throughout the year as well as developing our skills in English, maths and science. We aim to explore outside and in, as the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, and get first hand experience of our studies.
March saw our class residential to Barnstondale where we got our wellies on and getting back to nature - building dens, fording streams and exploring the great outdoors. This has set us up for a great rest of term, getting outside, planning a picnic, planting seeds and understanding how plants grow and where our food comes from.
This year we will continue to focus on developing our reading skills and we will aim to read 5 out of 7 nights a week. We would love all children to receive a gold reading certificate by the end of this year. Pupils have access to the Accelerated Reader progam and Reading Eggs - a fun online scheme which supports and develops their skills.
IF you want more informationon any of our online learning support tools, let me know.
Homework will be given out every Friday and will be due back the following Tuesday. All homework will be set to consolidate what the children have been learning in class that week.
Spelling lists will be given out every Friday. The spelling rules will be taught in school and all children can continue to practise these at home. Spelling tests will take place two weeks after the lists have been sent home to allow the children enough time to learn and be confident with the word lists and spelling rules that accompany them.
One of our important targets for all pupils in Y2 is learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and being to recall multiplication and division facts for these. We will ask children to practice their tables at thome every week from March and we encourage you to support your child in learning these key skills. All pupils have access to Times Tables Rock Stars - a fun and exciting scheme that can be accessed on ipads, phones and other devices to support and challenge your child's learning.
PE lessons will take place every Wednesday (cricket) and Thursday (dance), please ensure your child has their PE kit with them that day.
We are really looking forward to the rest of a fun-filled year!
