Welcome to Year 2 with Miss Baird
Ms Heaven and Mrs Cotter also work with us.
Below you will find some useful information about Year 2.
Our day starts at 8:45 in the morning.
Our finish time is 3:00pm.
You PE day is a Tuesday, please come to school wearing your PE kit on these days.
You kit should consist of a white t-shirt, black shorts or joggers and pumps of trainers. You can also wear a black hoodie or sweater to keep you warm if lessons are outside.
We are also lucky to take part in Forest School weekly.
Our Forest School day is Friday.
Please make sure you wear suitable clothing (clothing you don't mind your child/children getting muddy in) for these sessions.
We do provide children with an all in one suit to protect their clothing. Wellies are needed for Forest School.
We are still doing The Daily Mile. The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of our pupils... and staff!
Read on for more information about our learning and how you can support at home.
Children should be reading daily to improve their fluency. We should also help the children develop a love of reading. You can do this at home by sharing books with them and reading to them.
Please ensure that your child reading folder is in school every day, so that we can hear them read and change their reading books regularly.
Watch this video to learn how children are taught to say the sounds.
Each child has been issued with a Maths practice workbook. This will be sent home on Fridays and must be handed in on Tuesdays.
Below you can find a copy of the common exception words children need to be able to spell by the end of Year 2.
We will be setting some spelling homework. This will have the due date written at the top of the page.
You can also check the spelling rules they will learn in Year 2. You can find this in the documents section below.
These are websites that will help your child consolidate and advance their learning in a fun way.
