P.E. this term will be on a TUESDAY and a THURSDAY (outdoor PE). The children should come into school dressed in appropriate PE kit on those days. Please ensure your child has warm clothing (school hoodie, tracksuit bottoms and t-shirt) for outdoor PE and suitable trainers. If the weather is wet we will use the indoor hall and the children will need plimsolls.
It is important that you hear your child read as often as possible. In order to develop their independence skills, the children are responsible for changing their own reading book daily (when necessary). They are encouraged to put their reading folder into the reading tray at the start of the day and change their book at an appropriate time. The focus in year 2 is comprehension, so the children need to be confident in de-coding to have the best possible chance at this. There will be a list of questions below that you can ask your child when you're hearing them read. The emphasis is on a breadth of reading, not rushing through the colour bands. Any questions about reading, please do email me.
This will be sent out/set on a Tuesday and be due back in the following Monday. Homework consists of: daily reading (please record your comments in reading record books), weekly spellings, a piece of maths homework (Mathletics & Times Tables Rockstars). Please spend time learning 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables, common exception words and practice telling the time.
