Important Information

 

     School Uniform: 

Please make sure that your child’s name is written inside all school clothes (cardigans, jumpers, trousers, PE kits and coats). This makes it easier to give out misplaced clothes back to their rightful owners. smiley Remember if you take your jumper off in class, place it in the jumper box to keep it safe!

 

    Homework: 

This will be sent out on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday. Children will be given weekly spellings which will also be sent out on a Friday and tested on the following Friday. Remember to practice your spellings as often as you can!

 

 

            Handwriting: 

By Year 2 children should be joining their handwriting. Please practice handwriting and correct letter formation as much as you can at home. We follow the Nelson Handwriting Scheme. If you're unsure of anything please come in and ask my any questions. smiley

 

Changing Books:

Reading books are changed weekly, but this is not on a set day so it is very important that your child brings their book bag to school every day. Please write a comment in your child’s reading diary when you hear them read.

 

Reading at home is extremely beneficial for your child. Therefore there will be a weekly reading challenge for all of the children in the class. Everytime a child reads at home and an adult writes in their reading record they will get a raffle ticket. At the end of each week there will be a raffle and the child chosen from the raffle will then receive a prize. smiley

 

PE Days:

PE lessons will take place on a Monday and Thursday afternoon. Please make sure that your child has the

correct PE kit in school- black pumps, black shorts and a white or blue t-shirt. Also make sure your child removed any jewellery on PE days otherwise they will not be able to take part in the lesson. 

 

Praise Assembly:  

Every Friday at 9:00am we have our Praise Assembly. We celebrate our successes by having a VIP, Write of the Week, Maths Mind and Sports Player of the Week.

 

This week our congratulations go to:

 

VIP: Ethan

 

Maths Mind of the Week: Joseph

 

 

Writer of the Week: Brooklyn

 

 

Sport Player of the Week: Emily

 

 

Reader of the Week: Rayyan

 

 

 

Children also get rewarded for their good behaviour, once they get 6 stamps on their achievement card then they will receive a certificate in assembly. Look out for a slip in your child's bookbag!

School Council:

Zi-Han and Emily

 

Additional Information:

All children in Year 2 have usernames and passwords for Mathletics, Purple Mash and Bug Club. These can be found in their homework books. Please encourage your child to use Mathletics and Bug Club in order to enhance their Mathematical and Reading progress. Purple Mash is a fantastic resource as it covers all areas taught across the curriculum and helps children consolidate their learning. By the end of Year 2 children should be confident at reciting their 2,3,5 and 10 times tables, hit the button is a fantastic resource that allows children to consolidate their times tables knowledge in a fun way! smiley
