The children will be set homework on a Monday (it will be written in their yellow reading record book). The work will be set from the CGP books given to the children. Please help your child complete the work by Friday, then send the CGP books into school on Friday so we can all go through the homework together.
Both classes will have an outdoor P.E session every Monday and an indoor P.E session every Tuesday. The children are allowed to come to school dressed in their P.E kit on those days.
Your child will have 2 reading books sent home each week. As children move higher in the book band colours, they may only receive 1 to take home as books become longer. Please ensure that the reading record is brought into school every day for reading with the adults in school. We encourage as much reading at home as possible (even if it is just 5 minutes a night) and making sure that children are reading fluently and understanding some tricky words that they come across. We are happy for you to also read any books that you have from the library or from online services.
If your child suffers from either of these, please let the class teacher know. If your child is displaying any symptoms of coronavirus, is isolating or has tested positive, please ensure that you let the school know so that remote learning can take place for your child.
We encourage children to drink water regularly throughout the day. Please ensure that your child’s drink bottle is clearly labelled.
OVERVIEWS AND EXPECTATIONS
We have published the Year 2 expectations in the links below and we will continue to work towards these in our Year 2 classes. Please take the time to look through the expectations and reinforce any learning that we are doing in school.
We believe that it is very important to establish good communication between home and school and will do our very best to keep you up to date with what is going on in school. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact your child’s class teacher and we will do our best to help.
Thank you for your co-operation,
Year 2 Team
