Welcome to Year Two
Welcome to Year Two. Mrs Reeve teaches Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Fidler teaches all day Monday, Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday afternoon. The teaching assistant is Mrs Sanderson. Please free to come and see us about any ideas you have for this page or anything else you would like to know more about. Mrs Francis also comes in to help.
Homework in Year Two includes reading. We give raffle tickets and team points for reading regularly at home. We suggest at least 3 times a week. I have included some ideas below about the kinds of questions you could ask to ensure your child has understood what s/he has read.
We will also send spellings home on a Tuesday and the test will be the following Tuesday. Please ensure children know what the word means as well as how to spell it.
Times tables will be checked on a Friday.
PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays. We do PE outside wherever possible so please ensure PE kits include tracksuit bottoms and a warm top as well as shorts and t-shirt for inside. Earrings need to be removed or covered with plasters. The children need to be able to do this themselves as we are not allowed to assist. Long hair must be tied up.
If you are not sure what colour reading books you and your child should be choosing from the shelves for reading at home please have a word with me.
Water bottles are allowed on the desks as long as the children don't mess with them too much and as long as they do contain water.
At the end of the day the children can meet you outside the Year 2 fire door.
If you have any queries about anything at all please don't hesitate to come and see us.
