Welcome to Year 2 - Swans!
Welcome to Year 2's page!
P.E. lessons will take place on Monday afternoon and Thursday morning. Please ensure your child’s P.E kit is in school at all times and has been named. As usual, long hair needs to be tied back and earrings removed.
Homework is given out weekly on a Thursday. It should be returned the following Tuesday. There is a labelled homework box in the class where you hand in your homework each week. Homework consists of weekly spellings and maths; and termly topic homework. Please encourage your child to read a variety of books from home and from school for at least 15 minutes every day and record all feedback in the reading diary.
Talking to your child about his or her choice of book and what is happening in the story will develop greater comprehension and literacy skills, now that they have mastered the very first stages of reading. Talking about the characters and how they are portrayed will also help to develop writing skills.
Previously in Year 2 we have looked at Chinese New Year and made our own masks!
‘Mrs Armitage On Wheels’ by Quentin Blake
‘Mrs Armitage On Wheels’ is a great story and it can be the basis of designing some of our own vehicles for Mrs Armitage.
