Welcome to year 2!
We are really look forward to the exciting year ahead. There are lots of fun topics planned including ‘Fire! Fire!’, ‘Where in the World’ and ‘Sensational Safari vs Amazing Antarctica’. As well as this we have lots of experiences planned to run alongside all topics and would love to hear from parents if they think they can help. If you are aware of an experience that we could run in school to support the curriculum, please let us know.
In Year 2, we set fortnightly homework, which varies and can include maths, reading, topic and writing. Alongside this, children will have a weekly spelling test (normally completed on a Friday). Spellings are available below as well as being sent home in the children’s homework books. We send home two copies with a term worth of spellings, if you misplace the list and would like another please do not hesitate to ask. The spelling patterns are focused around key patterns the children are expected to know by the end of Year 2. Please ask if you would like to know how your child is progressing in this area.
At RLK, we challenge the children to read 5 times a week at home. This can be reading in a variety of forms including their book band book, library books, newspapers, letters and so on. Both class 5 and 6 collect and count reads every Monday so please ensure reading records are in school. We would also like reading records to be in book bags each day, where possible, as we are then able to record when the children read with adults in school. Children are expected to change their own reading book when they have finished it.
Don’t forget your logins for Purple Mash and Times Tables Rock Stars are in the back of your child’s reading record.
If you have any questions throughout the year, please do not hesitate to ask.
