message from the headteacherIn this, the final half term of 2018, we are looking forward to the rich variety of activities that we associate with this busy time of year. From Christmas Shows to Parents' Evenings, from Carols on the Crescent to Reading Workshops, there is a rich mixture of opportunities to become involved even more deeply with your school. Keep a close eye on 'Upcoming Events' to make sure you stay in the know!
Year 2 KM


WELCOME TO YEAR 2!

We have had a great first few weeks in Year 2!


We have been reading George's Marvellous Medicine together as class which has been inspiring our Literacy work. We have written diary entries from the point of view of Grandma and detailed descriptions. Next week we will make our own smelly, sticky, disgusting medicines!! Pictures to follow.


Thank you to all parents that were able to attend the Curriculum Evening. I hope you found it useful. If you ever have any questions or queries please feel free to ask me on the playground or we can arrange a meeting if needed.


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.

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 and Numeracy homework is given on Wednesday and needs to be returned on Monday. (This gives us time to mark and prepare new homework.)

Spellings will be given out on a Friday and books will need to be returned on Thursday. Pupils need to write out each spelling three times and choose 5 words to write in a sentence.

Spelling tests are on Friday.
Pupils will also do a times table test on a Friday.
