Welcome to Year 2

In Year 2 your child will need to bring their reading book bag every day. They will be able to change their books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, providing the reading record book has been signed. Please ensure they only bring their reading book, reading folder, and relevant homework in their books bags (NO KEYRINGS or TAGS), as it needs to fit in a small tray along with their indoor PE kit (white T- shirt, black shorts and black pumps — no bag needed). ALL PE KITS MUST BE LABELLED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.

For outdoor PE your child will need to bring their PE kit (tracksuit, extra T-Shirt and Velcro trainers) in on the outdoor PE day only in a stringed sports bag. Due to both the limited cloakroom space and because PE kits can get wet, they will need to bring it home the same day.

All stationery will be provided by school and the children will not be allowed to bring pencil cases.  Thank you.  Year 2 staff.

Spellings

Spellings will be sent home with your child on a Friday for you to practise at home together. We will then have a spelling test each Friday to assess progress made. We are very grateful for any support you can provide your child with in this area. The children have been given a spelling book to stick their spellings into. This is book is also for use at home when they children are practising their spellings. It must be brought in to school every Friday.

 

Water Bottles (Please fill with Water Only).

Your child is welcome to bring a water bottle to school each day to drink in class. It must however has a ‘sports lid’ that eliminates (well reduces the risk of spills). We encourage the children to take them home each evening, rinse them and bring them in full each day.

 

Reading

Please read with your child at least four times per week.  Check your child’s understanding of their book by asking them a range of questions such as: What might happen next? Why do you think the boy is feeling sad? What sort of mood is being created? This will help them to engage with their reading on a deeper level.  Please see your child’s weekly homework for further examples of types of questions to ask them.
