Year 2 2018 - 2019
"Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I'll remember. Involve me, I'll understand."
Year 2 is an important year for consolidating all that the children have learnt and experienced in Key Stage 1 and also preparing them for the transition to Key Stage 2.
How fast time is flying! The children are already half way through the year. We have been enjoying the story of Jack and the Baked Beanstalk, which has lead to lots of fantastic writing and art work. In the next few weeks we will be having a STEM (Science, Technology,Engineering and Maths) week, where the children will be linking Jack's cafe from the story and our healthy eating topic in science, into a fun project. Watch out for pictures!!
The children will get homework on a weekly basis. This will include a piece of maths work, to consolidate the children’s learning that week, and a piece of literacy homework. This may include a list of spellings to learn (assessment of their spellings will be done through their work not as a test). Homework is a great opportunity for you to see what your child has been learning during the week and children benefit from support in the learning process. Both Literacy and Maths homework will be given out on a Friday and should be brought back in to school by Wednesday of the following week.
Children will bring home a guided reading book and a choosing book each week. When listening to your child read please can you focus on their comprehension of the book. You could talk about the book before they start reading, stop half way to predict what might happen and recall what has happened, talk about characters, discuss what makes a good story and why and search for information.
The children will be using a cursive approach leading them smoothly in to joining. It would be helpful if this could also be supported at home. A copy of the letter formation will be given out at the Year 2 expectations meeting for parents.
P.E. sessions are on Monday and Tuesday afternoons.
Please can we ask that all coats, clothing, PE kits and pumps are clearly labelled.
