Welcome to Year 2!
In Year 2 the team is Miss Bassett, Miss Downing, Mrs Reucroft, Mrs Tancell, Mrs Seager, Mrs Turk and Miss Pearson.
We are looking forward to a fantastic first term together in Year 2!
Year 2's term 1 topic is...
This term Miss Bassett and Miss Downing will have their PPA (Planning, Preparation and Assessment) time on Thursday mornings. This will be covered by Mr Welti who will be taking the classes for PE, and Ms Moisey who will be teaching maths and Spanish to the children.
Please see below our topic web, which details more information about our topic 'Brunel's Bristol'. You will also find Home Links which give ideas of things that you might like to do at home to support our learning in school. Our Knowledge Organiser is also here for you to see!
We will be sending home more information over the next few weeks about Spellings and Number quizzes in Year 2. We thank you in advance for your support with this.
Children in Key Stage 1 have a piece of fruit/vegetable every day at morning break. Children also have the option of having a carton of milk. If you would like your child to have milk, please see the school office. Children not having milk have access to their water bottles. We find that lots of our Year 2s have growing spurts and get extra hungry! If your child would prefer fruit/vegetable from home as a snack, then they may also bring that in to eat during this time.
This term Cedar class' PE days will be Tuesday and Thursday. Please wear your PE uniform on these days.
This term Chestnut class' PE days will be Thursday and Friday. Please wear your PE uniform on these days. More information will follow about Chestnut's Friday session which will be at the gymnastics centre.
The children’s reading books are changed on a Monday and Thursday after they have read them at home with you. When you have shared the book with your child please write ‘finished’ in their reading record book, and then book will be changed. We ask the children to put their bookbag in the box on the carpet if it needs to be changed. As the rest of the school, we expect children to read at least 5 times per week, and to record this in their reading record diary.
We would be very grateful of offers to read with children in school. If you are able to help, then please see your class teacher.
At the front and back of the children’s reading records there is a list of keywords. These are excellent lists to practise reading at home so that your child can recognise these common words instantly by sight. Once your child can confidently read them, it is then a fantastic list of words that you might like to practise spelling with your child too.
