Welcome to Year 2!
Welcome back! I hope have thoroughly enjoyed the six weeks holidays and are ready to start the new school year. In the autumn term is towers, turrets and tunnels. We have lots of exciting activities, workshops and a trip planned for this term in order to learn more about castles and structures. We will also be doing an exhibition this term so keep an eye out for that!
The children will be reading the story the egg by MP Robertson this term and hopefully this exciting story will help to inspire the childre's writing produced in class. Watch out- we may even be visited by a dragon!
Our PE days for this half term are Monday and Wednesdays so could you please make sure your child has there PE kit in school on
Homework will not be given out on a weekly basis but homework projects will be given out each term for the children to enjoy producing topic work in a creative way. Every week the children will be expected to practise spellings, read (at least 3 times a week) and practise their maths passport target. These can be recorded in their reading record books kept in their organisers so rewards can be given. Their reading book can be changed at any point in a morning coming into the classroom. They can choose a new book with you or independently. A list of the children's book colours is displayed in the classroom.
As the children are now in year 2 they will be expected to complete the end of year SATs assessments. Throughout the year we will be practising and producing work which help to support this. More information will be given to parents next term on SATS and how this looks in year 2 and support that parents can provide at home.
I thoroughly look forward to the autumn term.
