Spring Term 2019

 

This term is really important for our Year 2 children as they ready themselves for their upcoming SATS in May. At the moment the children are working very hard to prepare themselves for these and we would like to thank all the parents and carers who continue to support their children at home too.

 

Good routines will really help the children to do their best and it is as important that they have a good breakfast each morning, don't go to bed too late and have some time to relax as it is doing school work. 

 

We look forward to seeing parents this week at our parents evening to share how well your children are doing. It has been noticeable this term how much they have settled and matured in Year 2 and we can already see that they are becoming ready for the move to the Juniors after the Summer!

Year 2 Key Objectives 

 

We have created a helpful document for parents outlining the Key Learning Objectives covered in Year 2 in Maths, Writing and Reading.

 

These objectives are the core skills we aim to develop in all of the children in Year 2 and we consider these to be the most important.  

 

The homework activities we send home for the children will help them to develop these skills so please encourage your child to complete their homework, we thank you for your time with this.

Key Objectives in Year 2

World Book Day

 

This year in Year 2 we will be focusing on the book:

 

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

 

 This is a classic children's story enjoyed by millions of children (and adults!). We are asking the children to dress up as one of the characters from the story or to take inspiration from the story to create a suitable costume- maybe dressing up as a lolly-pop, bar of chocolate, sweet or even the Golden Ticket!

 

We have added some photos below to give you some ideas. We can't wait to see what costumes you come up with!

Reading with your child

 

It can not be over-stated how important reading is for your child's development.  Better readers are naturally better writers, and are able to learn more easily, so we would encourage you to read with your child as much as possible. 

 

We are working very hard at the moment in developing your child's reading comprehension as this will form part of their upcoming SATS in May. Please make time to hear your child read at home and importantly ask them questions about the books they are reading to check they have understood what they have read.

 

 

 

Some good questions for a fiction text (story) you might ask are:

 

Who are the characters in the story?

Where is the story set?

How do you think the character feels?

What do you think will happen next in the story? Why?

Who is your favourite character? Why do you like them?

Which new words have you found in the book? What do they mean?

Can you tell me what happened in the book?

If you could change the ending, what would you like to have happened?

What made the characters do what they did?

Who do you think might like this book?

 

For a non-fiction book (Information book):

 

Can you tell me an interesting fact you found out in the book?

How is the book organised?

How do the contents page and index work?

Why did you choose this book?

What is this page about?

What new words have you found? How can we find out what they mean?

 

Talking about the book with your child is as important as listening to them read. Thank you for any time you can give to reading with your child. 

 

PE.

 

Could I remind parents who might not know the uniform that children should wear:

 

* White polo shirt/t-shirt

*Black shorts or leggings

*Trainers (pumps are only allowed indoors- trainers can be worn inside and out)

 

PE bags need to be kept in school throughout the term and will be sent home for washing at the end of the term.

 

Jewellery of any kind SHOULD NOT BE WORN for PE. Your child will be asked to remove all jewellery. Earrings can be particularly dangerous if worn in PE, as stated in the school policy:

 

Parents should be aware that the backs of earrings can cause injury to children when they are participating in active games.

 

Please remove Jewellery before your child's PE lesson. 

 

Swimming

 

All children in Year 2 will go swimming this year as part of the National Curriculum. The children always enjoy their trips to the swimming pool and it is both a fun and important experience for them as they learn to swim. 

 

We would encourage you to help support your child learning to swim by taking them swimming outside of school as this will accelerate their learning and build their water confidence. It's also great fun too!

 

For swimming your child will need:

 

*For girls a costume

*For boys swimming trunks (NOT SPORTS SHORTS)- they must be designed for swimming

 

Children should wear a swimming cap ideally so their hair does not get in their eyes as they swim, particularly those with long hair.

 

Once again, ALL JEWELLERY MUST BE REMOVED FOR SWIMMING.

 

 

Homework

 

In Year 2 children will be asked to complete homework activities as set by their class teacher. This homework will support their work in class and is designed to give the children the opportunity to practise what they are learning as well as involve parents in this learning. 

 

We actively encourage the children to involve parents with this homework, guiding them when they find things challenging, so thank you in advance for your help with this.

 

Children are likely to bring home activities such as:

 

Maths challenges

Times-tables practise

Book Reviews

Spelling Lists

 

Thank you for your support with homework- it does make a big difference.
