Year Two Notice Board

 

Notices

1. There are still some children without a PE kit in school. Please send in asap. PE kits need to stay in school and we will send them home at half term. 

2. We would really appreciate it if all adults could move back/stand to the side during drop off and pick up. We have had incidents where children have not been able to follow their class line due to adults blocking their way. The teaching assistants are available to take messages. 

3. If you have arranged for your child to have a music lesson during the school day, please inform us so that we are aware of this. We do our best to ensure that children catch up on work that has been missed.

Welcome to Year 2 2017

 

Home Learning

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 10 - 15 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension.  Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Infant Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

Reading with your child in Key Stage 1

 

Key words/ Spelling

Please practise reading and writing your spellings. Make sure that you know the meaning of each word. There is a Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheet below that you can use to help you. Spellings will be tested through a dictation each week.

 

This week’s spellings:

Please learn these spellings for next week's spelling test:

space, race, ice, slice, mice, fancy, city, circle, circus, and cylinder

These words all have the ‘s’ sound spelt with the letter ‘c’. Look out for these words in your reading books! Can you think of any other words that include this spelling pattern? 

 

Please continue to practise the Y1 & Y2 common exception words alongside the weekly spellings. These are the words which do NOT follow the general phonetic rules.
