Year 2 Spring One Newsletter

Our Golden Reward Children So Far Are ...


We are looking at Pirates this first half term for English and will be reading a range of related picture books. Our first novel will be A bear called Paddington by Michael Bond. 

Homework will be set on a Tuesday and homework books can come back to school on a Monday to be checked. 

Year 2 spellings are live on Spelling Shed 

Don't forget Maths is live on Sumdog too.

Reading Books   

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal. 

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.

PE days for Year 2

PE will be on a Tuesday and a Friday . Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on those days

PE Kit = black pumps, white T-shirt or school T-shirt and black shorts. 


Remember earrings cannot be worn for PE and must be taped if unable to remove BEFORE school


Look what we have been up to so far this year...
