Welcome to Year 2 with Miss Pinches
In Year 2 we enjoy the support of two Teaching Assistants: Miss Ellis (Mon - Thu) and Mrs Keise (Friday morning).
The children continue to follow the National Curriculum for all subjects which are often linked to each other to create a more cross-curricular approach to learning. Our topics this year will include The Victorians, Florence Nightingale and The Great Fire of London.
Spellings - Children will receive weekly spellings dependent upon their current attainment and needs. The words are given at the beginning of every half term and tested each Friday.
Reading - All children will take part in weekly guided reading sessions. In addition he/she will have a home reading book. Reading is essential to progress so please try to hear your child read as often as possible. When your child is ready to change their book they can let us know or please write a note in their journal.
PE - Soccer 2000 sessions will take place every Tuesday and teacher led PE on Wednesday. The children should have a kit suitable for both indoor and outdoor activities. Please ensure that all items are clearly labelled.
Homework - Children should try to read for at least 10 minutes each day and learn their weekly spellings. Further optional homework will be sent on a Friday that is linked to that week's learning. Children are able to access a range of activities on Education City to further practise their skills in English and Maths.
We look forward to a busy, happy and successful year.
