Welcome to Year 2
A Rainbow of Opportunity
'Human potential is without limit if we are motivated and engaged.'
We believe that children should experience life in all of its fullness (John 10:10).
With a growth mindset, you can do anything.

Our topic is... Little people Big dreams.
Take a look at the medium term planning here...
Here are our topic words to practise reading and spelling.
PE will be taught every Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child's PE kit follows our school uniform and remains in school throughout the week. Children may wear jogging bottoms as part of their kit during the winter months.
Blue folders: Blue folders will be sent home every Friday with a reading related activity to complete and be handed in on Thursday. The activity will be an opportunity to practise and apply skills for retrieval, inference, prediction and sequencing skills .
Sometimes the homework activity may be different and linked to our topic work or involve research. Your child will be awarded one team point for completed homework.
Maths: Children are to complete one double page of their Orange Maths booklets or two parts of their Purple Maths booklet each week to be handed in on Thursday. It would be really helpful if these were marked at home so your child can fix mistakes and receive feedback at the time of completion. Your child will be awarded one team point for completed maths homework.
Reading: Your child has been set the challenge to read at least 5 times a week. We aim for children to see reading as part of their daily routine and as a pleasurable activity. Please record when your child has read in their reading diary as we check this daily and one team point will be awarded for each time they read. The key is to read little and often. Please question your child when reading to develop their comprehension skills.
Thank you for your support. It really makes a huge difference and is vital in Year 2.
