By the end of Year 2 children must be able to:
This year, the children will be taking their Year 1 Phonics Screening Test in the week before half term. Please help your child by practicing their sounds at home. More information about how to help your child can be found at: https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/reading/learn-to-read-phonics/
During the Autumn term, we will be learning all about 'London', 'Past and Present'. This will include 'The Plague', 'The Great Fire of London' and how these events caused massive changes in London.
For the first three weeks, to replace PE sessions, the children are taking part in 30-minute daily sports activities. Please ensure your child has plimsolls or trainers in school every day. After these first 3 weeks the normal Year 2 curriculum will begin and there will be two PE lessons per week. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit that fits.
No homework will be sent home for the first 3 weeks of the Autumn term whilst the children are settling back into school routines. From then, homework will be given on a Friday and are to be returned each Wednesday. Reading books will be sent out and changed Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays.
I look forward to meeting you all.
Miss Harriet Matthews
Year 2 Teacher
