Welcome to Year 2 from Mrs Mantel, Miss Pollitt and Mrs Cope!
Welcome back to the second half term of the Autumn term! Well done to all our wonderful Year 2 pupils on making such a fantastic start to a new school year and settling back in so well after a long time away from school! This half term our topic is called ‘Street Detectives’ where we will be putting on our investigative hats and finding out all about our local area now and in the past!
Our big focus on reading skills will continue this half term so please make sure you are practicing your sounds and reading as much as you can at home! A great website for fun, interactive phonics games is https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/ where the children can practice from an ipad or computer.
Things to remember
We do PE on a Wednesday and a Thursday – please make sure PE kits are in school on these days. Long hair should be tied up.
Spellings will be sent home on Friday and will be tested the following Friday. Please help your child practise their spellings as often as you can. Other homework will be sent home on Friday, we ask for it to be brought back into school for the following Thursday.
You can really support your child in Year 2 by reading regularly at home and questioning their understanding of the text. Also practising the 2x 5x 10x tables, recognising and writing numbers from 0-100 and learning how to tell the time.
