Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Croeso i ddosbarth 2!

 

 

Dear Parents and Children,

We hope you have had a lovely Easter break and have recharged your batteries for another busy term. We aim to continue to ensure your child is happy, settled and making good progress in their learning before moving onto Key Stage 2.

 

Here is a reminder of some information that you may find useful for your child's time in Year 2.

 

Dinner money will continue to be collected on a Monday. If you are paying with cash could you please ensure it is in an envelope with your child's name on it.

 

P.E. will be on a Thursday. Your child will need shorts, a T-Shirt and trainers. P.E. bags can be left on your child's coat peg.

 

We will be continuing fruit and healthy snacks in the afternoons. A donation of £1 a week helps to fund the purchase of fruit. Children can continue to bring a healthy snack (fruit/water) from home for morning playtime.

 

To ensure all children are collected safely from school we ask that you queue along the path around back of the school and inform us of whom you are collecting. If anyone unfamiliar is going to be collecting your child from school could you please let us know.

 

Your child’s reading day/s will continue as normal. At this point in their learning, we encourage the children to read other books at home as well as their school books. This helps to develop a love of reading and access to a range of genres.

 

Our Topic for this Autumn Term is ‘Superheroes.’ We plan on doing lots of fun and challenging work which aim to develop Literacy and Numeracy skills, with a main focus on Knowledge and Understanding of the world and how we can keep ourselves healthy and happy.

 

The National Numeracy and Literacy tests will be taking place in May. A timetable will soon follow with dates and times.

 

If you have any concerns regarding your child or if there are any queries please don't hesitate to ask.

 

Many Thanks

Miss F. Edwards (Class Teacher)

Hi all,

 

Just a quick message.  Due to meetings and changes in timetables, Year 2's PE is likely to change week on week.  Your child can leave their PE bags on their peg so that they always have them when needed.  If you have any questions just let me know.

Challenge Week 3

Dear Parents,

              Welcome back and we hope you have had a fantastic summer break. We are looking forward to another busy year and working with you to ensure your child is happy, settled and making good progress in their learning.

 

Here is here some information that you may find useful for your child's time in Year 2.

 

Dinner money will continue to be collected on a Monday. If you are paying with cash could you please ensure it is in an envelope with your child's name on it.

 

P.E. will be on a Thursday. Your child will need shorts, a T-Shirt and trainers. P.E. bags can be left on your child's coat peg.

 

We will be continuing fruit and healthy snacks in the afternoons. A donation of £1 a week helps to fund the purchase of fruit. Children can continue to bring a healthy snack (fruit/water) from home for morning playtime.   

 

To ensure all children are collected safely from school we ask that you queue along the path around back of the school and inform us of whom you are collecting.  If anyone unfamiliar is going to be collecting your child from school could you please let us know.

 

You will be notified of when your child will read their home/school reading book in school in their Reading Record.  At this point in their learning, we encourage the children to read other books at home as well as their school books.  This helps to develop a love of reading and access to a range of genres.  In addition to this the children will now receive two sessions of Guided Group Reading in school each week.  As well as listening to the children read, Guided Group Reading also provides opportunities to teach reading skills and to assess them.

 

Spelling is being approached in different way this year.  Children will receive a list of High Frequency Words (HFW) which they will need to learn how to spell.  When they are confident please return the list to school and the next list will be issued on the following Friday.  

 

Our Topic for this Autumn Term is ‘Remember, Remember.’  We plan on doing lots of fun and challenging work based on The Great Fire of London.

 

If you have any concerns regarding your child or if there are any queries please don't hesitate to ask.

 

Many Thanks
