Year 2 JN
Welcome to Year 2 JN


STOP PRESS!!
Well, we are getting closer and closer to our SATs tests and the children are working very hard to prepare for them. Keep reading and learning your times tables!


Year 2
In Year 2 we will be following on from the excellent work done in the Foundation Stage and Year 1. We will be helping the children to become more independent as they work. The children will be encouraged to check their own work and to get used to finishing their work to a deadline!

All children in Year 2 take part in SATs tests in May in reading, writing and maths. The best way you can help your child to prepare for the SATs is to continue hearing them read, helping them to complete their homework and to learn spellings each week. There will be a meeting in March to explain about the SATs in more detail.


Some of the websites we use in school are -

Learning Goals
This Half-Term
Our focus this half-term is handwriting and presentation. All the children have now had a sheet to show you the cursive letter formation. I am very impressed with their joined up writing. Keep practising this at home too.

Maths work will now involve larger numbers and we are ordering and writing 3-digit numbers.

We have used the Oxford Owls website in school and it was very popular. It contains lots of free books to read online and tips to help support reading. You will find lots of reading scheme books on it and it will help keep the children reading over the holidays.
Homework
Here are a few reminders about routines in Year 2 -
Literacy homework is given on Friday and needs to be returned on Monday.
Numeracy homework is given on Monday and needs to be returned on Friday.
Spelling tests are on Friday.
