Your child will be encouraged to grow in confidence as they move through Year 2. Our motto is Have A Go. We want them to grow in confidence and attempt new and challenging experiences. They will be expected to look after their own property under guidance. It is essential that all belongings are clearly labelled with their name and that they recognise their possessions. Please show them how and where you have labelled their items to help them with these things. The children will be expected to give response letters and forms to their teacher without us having to check through their book bags. The children can have water throughout the day so it is important they bring a labelled water bottle in to school if they haven’t already done so.
Please read with your child every night. Please also write a comment indicating how accurately and independently they were able to read the text. Reading books will be changed regularly, but only if there is a comment from an adult entered about the current book. The children need to bring the book bag in everyday. Please encourage your child to read for pleasure as well as their home reading book. Reading is something we want the children to be excited and enthusiastic about.
Children will receive homework on a Friday. Homework will be due in to school on a Wednesday. Research shows that parental help with this has a big impact on your child’s progress, so please try and support your child by completing this homework as often as you can.
P.E will take place every Tuesday and Friday. All items of kit need to be clearly labelled including pumps, so that your child can change confidently and quickly, without having to search for their kit. P.E kits can be kept in school all half term. We will send them home to be washed at each half term holiday unless they become very wet and muddy. Please encourage your child to get themselves dressed and remind them the order of things e.g. jumper off before t-shirts etc.
Thank you for your support
