Welcome to Year 2
Important information:

Physical Education
PE days are Mondays and Thursdays. The children will need to bring their PE kit on these days to get changed into before the PE lesson. PE kit should consist of a navy or white t-shirt and navy shorts or navy/black tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Children will need pumps or trainers because we will be outside as much as possible.

Reading Books
Books will be changed on Mondays and will need to be returned to school on Fridays.  
Please try to listen to your child reading for at least 5-10 minutes each day.
Sharing a book at bedtime or reading a story to your child will help them develop a love for reading!

Spelling Tests take place on Fridays and new spellings will be given out on Monday. Words will be given to your child which they can stick in to their spelling book at home. Please make sure that your child looks after their book and that you check it regularly. Thank you.

Please practise times tables with your children so that they can learn them by reciting them and know them by heart. They should practise x2, x10, x5 and x3. A reading comprehension book or a maths arithmetic book will be sent home on a Thursday to be returned the following Thursday. 
Children have the opportunity to complete activities from the topic homework menu. These activities link to the learning we will be doing in class that half term.

and finally....
If you have any questions about Year 2 and the things we do, please come and talk to either Miss Horigan and Miss Paterson.
