Welcome to Year 2!

We hope you enjoyed watching our Nativity performances. The children did such a great job and we were really proud of every single one of them. They all sang and spoke with such confidence. Well done Year 2!

We’d like to say a huge thank you for all our Christmas cards and gifts, we have been really spoilt! The Year 2 Team would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas!

In Term 3, we have our school trip to the SS Great Britain to look forward to. This is always a really successful trip and the children love learning about Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his achievements as part of our History work.

Reading

We ask that you listen to your child read at least 5 times a week and record this in their reading records. Children reading below RR20 are asked to read each book through twice before they change it. This helps develop fluency and comprehension. Ask lots of questions about what has been read and encourage your child to re tell the story – they can use the book to help them with this as it’s not a memory test. “Reading is for life. Enjoy!”

Numeracy

Throughout the year the children will be taking part in different Maths Challenges. These involve the children completing 55 number sentences in 5 minutes. Please help your child to learn their number bonds to 10, 100 and 20. They can also work on learning their 2,5 and 10x tables. For a challenge why not try the 3 and 4x tables too?!
