Year 2Tweets by @crontony2
Welcome to Year Two with Miss Hamlin and Mrs Buckley.
Homework (English and/or Maths) will be put Seesaw on a Friday, to be done by the following Friday.
Spellings are sent home in your child’s individual spelling book, where you will also be able to see how they got on with their last spelling test. The week’s spelling list will be sent home on a Monday, for the test on a Friday.
Reading – Reading is a vital part of children's homework. Please listen to your child read as much as possible - ideally daily. Please record your child's reading in their reading records as they can receive reading ninja certificates every 25 times they read. The more your child reads the more they will become confident in all aspects of learning. It is important that children read their school reading books, however you can also record in their reading record if they read a different book of their own. Books are changed twice a week.
In Year Two we work on our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. After Christmas we start to do a times tables test on a Friday. We will also begin to use Times Table Rockstars to practise these tables. The more your child practises their tables, the more fluent and confident they will become in maths lessons.
This term, we will be having PE on a Tuesday. For now, children should come to school in their PE kit each Tuesday. This may change in the future but we will let you know if and when it does.
Please continue to check in on the class blog for more details of what we are getting up to in class. For regular updates on what we're getting up to in Year 2, make sure you're also following our Twitter page @crontony2. I will be using our Twitter page to share pictures and videos of lessons and to celebrate children's work and achievements. If your child does anything outside of school to extend their learning, please feel free to share it with us via Twitter - just make sure you tag us (@crontony2) in the tweet!
