Year 2

Weekly overview

The whole class have worked hard this week in our final week of SATs preparation.

It is important that the class are in on time next week for their SATs tests; the tests will begin following assembly each morning next week.

In Maths the class have been reviewing all areas of our Maths curriculum; working on arithmetic and reasoning questions in preparation for our SATs next week. The class continue to enjoy their daily speed times tables tests to achieve rapid recall. I am impressed with the attainment of our daily speed trials.

In English, we have also been preparing for our SATs next week. We have completed daily spelling tests, a practice reading test and consolidated our SPaG knowledge with daily practice and SPaG test questions.

The class have now consolidated the Year 1/2 spelling list and have moved onto some Year 3 spellings. The class continue to impress me with yet another week of full marks on their class spelling test.

I am very proud of the whole class for their enthusiastic attitude to their SATs practice.

I am confident that all their hard work and efforts will be rewarded with success next week.

Good Luck Year 2!

 

 

 

 

Half-termly Overview Summer 1 2019

Welcome back to a new half term

This term the class will be preparing for their SATs which will take place week beginning the 20th of May.

In addition, I will led a morning activity each morning. It would obviously be of benefit if your child is here at 8.30am to take part in these activities.

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to call in and see me before school or at home time. You can also contact me via an email to school or leave a message for me to phone you at a time which is convenient.

A few friendly reminders…

Reading is of the utmost importance.  Children should be doing some reading at home every night.  Please could an adult record pages read and a brief comment in the reading diary.  In Year 2, children will read to the teacher twice per week, although this may be reviewed if it is felt it would be beneficial to read more often.  There will be no set reading day and children should have their reading folder and books in school every day.  Times tables are of equal importance and I have suggested to the children they should be doing a little practice each day.

P.E. will now be on a Wednesday; the children will need their full P.E kit each Wednesday. This term the class will be doing Gymnastics.

For Year 2, homework will be set on Friday to be handed in the following Thursday.  There will be a piece of English, a piece of Maths plus spelling words and times tables.

Thank you

We would welcome any resources you may have at home that you feel could enhance your child’s learning in any part of the curriculum that we are studying. This may be in the form of information books, guidebooks and leaflets collected on visits to places of interest that you have made with your family. Even better, if you feel that any experiences of your own are relevant to the curriculum, it would be wonderful if you could come and share them with the class.

Thank you,

Miss Campbell and Miss Meeks.
