Reminders and useful information
PE - This term we have an indoor PE on a Monday and outdoor PE on a Friday. All children will need school shorts and t-shirt for indoor PE and trainers and a jumper for outdoor PE.
Homework - The children will receive a homework menu at the start of each term. The children will be required to complete their homework in their homework books and return it on a Wednesday. Homework books will then be handed out again on Friday ready to complete the task for the following week.
Reading - Please listen to your child read and help us to encourage the love of reading. Each class has a reward chart with prizes to encourage the children to read as much as possible. Children can change their books as regularly as they are reading so please put your books in the basket to be changed any day of the week.
Times Tables - In year 2, we will be focusing on the 10, 5, 2 and 3 times tables. Please practise these with your children at home. We will be testing the children on these throughout the year. Your child will also receive a login for Timestable Rockstars, a fun and competitive way of practising too!
Spellings - The children are working hard to learn how to spell the common exception words for year 2. Please see a list of these at the bottom of the page and in your child's homework book. We will be sending a selection of these words home on a regular basis to support your child. These will be words that we have focused on in school so they should be familiar to your child.
The year 2 team thank you for your continued support.
