Year 2 2021 - 2022
Welcome to our Year 2 Class Page
Here you will find information about the school day, class expectations and our Year 2 Curriculum.
Our school day starts at 8:45am and ends at 3:15pm. The children will be greeted by a member of year 2 staff.
I am sure we have met most of you by now but we would like to introduce ourselves as your class teachers for this year. We have already had a very busy start to the new year and the children have settled in really well. We are super proud of them all! Thank you for helping to get them off to a great start
In Year 2 there is a greater expectation on your child to become more independent. Children ned to be able to organise themselves and begin to take responsibility for their learning and everyday organisation. To help your child achieve this please encourage them to remember their water bottle, reading book, lunchbox etc every day. Please practise learning to tie shoelaces and getting dressed on their own. Also let your child come into class on their own and settle to their work straight away. Please don’t come past the gate at drop off and pick up times. Encourage your child to complete reading and homework tasks independently but offer help if they are struggling and where you think necessary.
Important Information & General Reminders
P.E: PE lessons take place on a Tuesday morning & Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child is wearing a pair of trainers or PE pumps to school on both these days. Children are expected to arrive in school wearing their PE kits, however, we do ask that your child brings a school jumper or cardigan with them. We ask that your child dresses appropriately for the time of year e.g. long sleeves and long bottoms in colder months and a short sleeved t-shirt and shorts in warmer months.
Homework: The children are encouraged to read at home regularly, practise basic maths skills (+/-) and use online learning resources such as Bug Club, Purple Mash and BBC Bitesize. The children have lots of activities to complete on Purple Mash to support their learning and we can see and mark the work as the children “hand” it in.
Reading Books: All of the children have a reading book which is brought home each evening. We ask that the children bring this to school each day and we try our best to read with the children at least once or twice a week. We want to encourage fluency and understanding and expect the children to read their book several times before they change it. Children should also aim to read a book of their choice from home for 5 minutes a night. Your child has a school diary which contains their reading record, please sign and make any comments in this.
Water Bottles: This year, children are to bring in their own water bottles from home. The children are asked to take their bottle home each night and we ask that it is washed each day and sterilised each week. Your child’s water bottle should be filled with fresh water daily. This should be plain and not flavoured.
Bug Club & Purple Mash: Logins for both of these apps have been updated and sent home. If you are having any trouble with passwords or logging on, please let us know and we will look into it for you.
Thank you for your continued support.
The Year 2 Team.
