Welcome to Year 2
Autumn Term 2017
PE for 2R and 2G is on Wednesday and Friday. The children need to bring their PE kits in a bag every MONDAY. They will need tracksuit bottoms/leggings/shorts and a tshirt in a clearly labelled bag. They will need to bring or wear trainers every WEDNESDAY for outdoor games.
Book bags are changed on a Thursday.
2R spellings and x tables tests are on Thursday and 2G spelling tests are on Fridays. Big Maths tests are every Wednesday.
The introduction of 'Big Maths' is already raising standards in Mathematics. Please help your child with any of the test papers which are sent home. One test is a 'timed' test so children have to 'know' number bonds with no thinking time! Please help your child to memorise these number facts (addition and multiplication).
The children participate in a Literacy scheme called 'Read, Write, Inc'. The children's phonic skills are regularly assessed and they are grouped according to their abilities. They will usually be taught in small groups and they might be with a teacher who is not their class teacher. These groups change regularly as the children progress
The topic for the first Autumn term is 'We are Healthy y' and 'We remember' for Autumn 2.
We will be visiting 'Chapter' and the 'Library' this half term. We will be finding out more about the uses of these public buildings and their history.
