Year 2 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Year 2
Welcome back we hope you had a wonderful summer despite the circumstances.
This year in Year 2 we have two teachers, Ms Hines Monday to Thursday and Miss George on a Friday. Mrs Thomas will be in class all week.
We are looking forward to making this year a positive and happy year for all children to get them back into the routine and life of our school. Obviously there will be some changes but we will do our best to make sure the experience is as positive as it has always been.
In Year 2 we will be giving out spellings and mental maths on a Friday to be kept at home and practised ready for the tests the following Friday.
All the words are based on the Key stage 1 spelling lists and also additional spelling related to topics.
The Maths will consist of a lot of number work and facts to memorise. For example, number bonds and the 2, 5 and 10 times table.
Reading, will take place in school throughout the week
PE will be on a Monday and we would like the children to wear their kit to school and they will stay in the kit for the full day. So please make sure they have a sweatshirt and joggers over their tee shirt and shorts. We live in Manchester and you can never know what the weather will be like!!
Homework in Year 2 will be a pack given at the beginning of the year which is to be worked through at your child’s pace. Also some number cards which can be used for games to re-enforce mental maths skills. This does not need to come back to school. In addition, the weekly spelling and mental maths will be sent and also we would like your child to try and read for at least 20 minutes each day at home.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to speak to us. We are looking forward to a wonderful year with this great class!
Ms Hines, Miss George, and Mrs Thomas
