Year 2

General Information and Expectations

8.50 is the time your child should be in school every day.  Early morning work is very important and planned, often individually; please ensure your child is on time.

P.E. is on Wednesday and Fridays, children will need suitable P.E. kit for both indoors and outside.  Long hair should also be tied back and earrings removed wherever possible.

Daily reading at home is vital. Children should be reading for approximately 10 minutes each evening. If they have completed their school reading book, please feel free to read other books with your child. It is important that they have the chance to read books that they are interested in e.g non-fiction, poetry and magazines as well. Children are encouraged to become more independent in Year 2 and may change their own reading books as soon as they have finished them.  We would be grateful if you could either comment or sign the reading record to let us know you have read with your child.  Key words will also be sent home for you to practice regularly with your child; these will not be tested but help improve your child’s reading fluency.

Home learning (spellings and number facts) will given out on a Friday and is assessed the following Friday.

Book bags should be clearly labelled and in school every day along with your child’s reading record and reading book.  Back packs are not needed.

We are very keen to maintain open communication with you.  If there is anything you would like to talk to us about please catch us after school or make an appointment in advance.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to a successful year!
