Books Going Home

Maths and English books will be coming home for children to show their fantastic learning at school. They will be sent home Friday 1st December. Please ensure they are back to school on Monday 4th December. Happy reading!

 

Read Write Inc. Spelling

In Year 2, we are using Read Write Inc to help us with our spellings. The children will learn and complete activities based on sounds each week in class. These spelling words match up with our weekly spellings tested on a Friday in dictation. As an optional extra, children can practise and learn the spellings we complete each week in their log books which are sent home daily. This week we are learning what happens to some root words when we add the suffix -ly.

When the root word ends in 'y', we swap the 'y' for an 'i'.

loud - loudly

brave - bravely

kind - kindly

easy - easily

happy - happily

merry - merrily

 

Year 2 Parent Reading Volunteers

We would really appreciate it if any parents are able to volunteer to read with Year 2 children on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday afternoons. Please see your child's class teacher if you are interested.

 

PE 

Year 2 pupils will be having PE on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit. Thank you!

 

Spelling Assessment 

Year 2 pupils are tested each term on the Year 2 common exception words. Your child will bring home a list of the 100 words with the spellings they need to focus on highlighted. Please go through and practice these spellings with you child.

Year 2 Letters

End of Key Stage 1 Assessments

End of KS1 tests (SATs) will be administered during the month of May. These tests contribute to our overall teacher assessment which is ongoing throughout the year.

Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

    • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
    • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
    • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be  tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
    • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.

Learning this week

 

English

This week we are beginning to write our poetry about London. We are using the following poem as a WAGOLL

 

The London Eye

 

The wonderful London Eye
Is a slowly turning wheel
All white and bright
And made of steel

What an amazing sight it is!

It is slowly turning
Round and round
Offering delightful views of London
Above the endless ground

How high up it goes!


Famous colourful landmarks and
Sights strangely gleaming
The nation’s history
brightly beaming

What a lot of things to find out!


But finally we all agree
It’s worth the fee
To wisely ride the wheel
The cheerful sights to see.

How we love lovely London!

 

We will be writing and performing poetry which has to include, suffixes ly, less and ful, exclamations and include rhyming words.
