Our topic is... We are on a Journey!
Take a look at the medium term planning here...
Here are our topic words to practise reading and spelling. These are also available on Spelling Shed.
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.
Reading Comprehension: What used to be SPAG folders in the Autumn Term will now become reading comprehension folders. Your child will recieve a short "cold" text with a series of questions afterwards. Please answer the questions using the information in the text. A letter detailing this further was handed out at the beginning of the Spring Term.
Maths: Children are to complete one double page of their Maths booklets 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.
Reading: Your child has been set the "Read-a-thon" challenge to read at least 5 times a week. We aim for children to see reading as part of their daily routine. Please record when your child has read in their reading diary as we check this daily and one teampoint will be awarded for each time they read. They could read their Guided Reading book, a home reader or a book from home. 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.
