Year 2 2020 - 2021
Hello Year 2 !
Our new story this half term isThe Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark. Maybe you have heard of it before. It's a story about growing up and bravery.
We will have two PE lessons a week. Wednesday will be our outdoor lesson so please make sure children wear a pair of joggers or leggings as the weather gets chillier. Friday is our hall time. On both days children should come into school in their PE clothes and stay in them all day. Please try and make sure girls have hair tied back on these days.
Reading is our main form of homework in Year 2 and we expect children to read at least four times a week. Reading will be assessed in the first couple of weeks and children will be sent home with three reading books – a phonic reader, a colour banded book and a library book. Please write in the diary to let us know they have read and we encourage children to write their own date and titles.
Times Tables Rock Stars is our maths homework and children will be issued with a login for this in the first couple of weeks. It takes a little while for them to get going with this as it is quite fast-paced. Please don’t give up!
As the children missed their Phonic Screening Test in Year 1, the latest government guidance says that we will need to test the children during the second part of the Autumn Term and those who do not pass the test will resit in June. We will let you know how the children get on later on in the term. As it stands at the moment, Year 2 SATs tests will go ahead as normal in May and we will have a meeting to let you know all about these in the new year.
We know that different children have different gaps in their learning. Some found it difficult to work at home, some came back into school. We want to reassure you that we have planning in place to fill these gaps and proceed quickly with their Year 2 curriculum. This may mean that your child works in a focus group with an adult or has a one-to-one intervention so it is vital that they come into school on time as some of these groups get started as soon as the children come into school.
