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.
The Year 2 team would like to welcome all the children and parents back to Belgrave Primary School for another important year. The children have come back to school ready for a new year, new start and lots of learning after the six week summer holiday. Everyone has settled back in to the routine well and we have enjoyed listening to the adventures they have had over the break.
In Year 2 we like to encourage the children to become more independent. We ask that grown- ups say good bye to their children on the playground and allow the children to come in on their own. This also helps to ease congestion in the cloakroom. On arrival in the morning there will be an activity on the board for them to work on by themselves before the register.
We have lots of exciting things planned for this term. Please see the link below for an overview of the areas of learning for the Autumn Term.
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.
