Our PE lessons are on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure your child comes into school on both days in their correct kit with names on all their items and pumps.
These will be changed on Monday or Wednesday every week (Your child will know what group they are in). Reading books will only be changed when the book can be read fluently and understood and if it has been signed by an adult. Children will always be asked to clearly recall the story before books are changed. Children are encouraged to read their book at home at least 3 times a week to develop their fluency and understanding. This is important to ensure they progress well throughout the year. It is really important to ask your child questions as they read to ensure they understand what they are reading. Please comment with any areas your child struggled on or any other helpful comments - the more you comment, the more we can best support your child.
Phonics words/spellings are given out in their spelling on Friday and are tested the following Friday. Please help your child to practise and learn their spellings each week. Children in Year 2 must write the spellings in the chart and also to put them in to sentences to ensure that they understand the words meaning. Scores will be written into their home spelling book.
Homework is given out on Seesaw/Paper on a Wednesday and needs to be returned on the following Monday. This gives the children plenty of time to complete the work set and also gives them the opportunity to ask the teacher for help if required. If homework is not completed on time, children will be asked to complete it in Golden Time on Friday.
