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!

 

English and maths books coming home

Year 2 pupils will be bringing home their maths and English exercise books. Please use this as an opportunity to peak into what your child has been learning about at school! There will be a sheet stuck into the front and back cover which outlines how to positively look at books and comment if you wish to. The books will be coming home Friday 13th October, please return them by Monday 15th October

 

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.

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 in English, we have reminded ourselves about what we need to include in an information text. Our information texts will be all about London, focusing on famous landmarks. The children will need to include capital letters, full stops and conjunctions in their writing. 

 

Maths

This week in Maths we have been looking at place value. We have used Diennes to help count out the tens and units of numbers, write numbers in words, compare numbers using greater than and less than. We have also been reasoning about different numbers looking at place value and even and odd numbers. For example; which number is the odd one out? 45     42      37?

The answer could be 37 because it only has 3 units. However, the answer could also be 42 because it's an even number. 

 

Learning Next Week

 

English 

We will begin our first draft of our information text about London. 

 

Maths

We will continue to focus on place value of numbers.
