Year 2 2021 - 2022

Miss Redshaw

Miss Patterson

Welcome to Year 2, we are very excited to welcome you all for our Spring term 
The teachers in Year 2 are Mrs Redshaw (2R) and Miss Patterson (2P). The teaching assistants
are Miss Butterworth (2R) and Miss Schofield (2P).

P.E.

P.E. in Year 2 will take place every Monday.

Children must come to school in their P.E. kits (white top, black trousers/shorts/leggings and appropriate trainers). Please make sure your child comes into school with the correct PE kit.

In the Spring term, Year 2 will also take part in Commando Joe every Thursday afternoon.
Pupils will need to have trainers in school for this.


Homework and spellings

In Year 2, homework will be set on Mathletics and Lexia every Friday. The apps will be checked by
the teachers every Wednesday. Spellings are handed out on Monday/Tuesday and our spelling test is on Friday.

Children should also be accessing Times Table Rockstars, Numbots and Myon at home.


Reading

The children will be assigned a reading book on Collins Ebook every Friday. Please log in to access your child’s reading book via the website or app: https://ops.collinsopenpage.com/sso/login We expect children to be reading at least 3 times a week at home to an adult. If you are unsure of your child’s login, then please ask their class teacher.

Your child will also bring home a sharing book, this will be a book they have chosen to bring home and share. The purpose of this book is to promote a love of reading and therefore, this book will not necessarily be at their reading level. Please read this book with them each week and do not be concerned if they are unable to read the book independently.

They will also be given a reading record to record when they have read to an adult at home. Please sign the reading record when your child has read their reading book on the app and their sharing book with an adult. 

Times tables

By the end of Year 2, children need to know all times table facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We
will practice regularly in school, but it is crucial that children are practicing their times tables at home
daily for rapid recall. To support them with this, please make sure your child is regularly practising on
Times Table Rockstars. 

Home learning policy

If your child needs to isolate in year 2, work will be set each day on google classroom. If you are unsure of your child’s google classroom login, please contact your child’s class teacher.

Learning

During Spring 1 , children will be learning about materials in science, where our food comes from in geography and
they will be learning about colour mixing in art. In English, children will be learning the story of the Night Pirates and
exploring measure and charts in maths. Download our science and geography knowledge organisers to learn some interesting facts!

Please contact us if you have any questions,
Mrs Redshaw and Miss Patterson
