2022-2023

Spring Term 1

Teacher: Ms Turner

TA: Denise T

 

Happy new year! Welcome back to year two. We hope you had a lovely, restful break. Please see the below for some quick reminders. 

 

Reading records

Children receive 1-2 books per week depending on the length. One of these books is linked to their in-school reading level and is designed to be quickly decodable for children so that they can become more fluent and expressive readers. 

 

Please support your child's reading development by reading with your child everyday for at least 10 minutes each day and ask them questions about the text they have read. 

 

Reading records should be returned every Wednesday so that children can change their book. Please help your children take care of their books by encouraging them to carry their water bottle instead of placing it in their bookbag. 

 

P.E.

Year 2's P.E. lessons will continue to take place on Mondays and Wednesdays. Children should bring their PE kit in a separate bag. They will change for PE at school.

 

Homework

Homework is given out on a Friday and we ask for it to be returned on the following Wednesday. Children will now also get a list of spellings each week for a spelling test the following Thursday.

 

Topic

Our new topic is a history topic all about pioneers from the past. You can help your child by talking to them about different pioneers from history, including Neil Armstrong and Katherine Johnson. If you are looking for an idea to enrich your child's learning outside of the classroom, you could visit the Science Museum to learn more about space or visit the Museum of Home in Hackney to see what life looked like in the past. 

 

 

Many Thanks,

Ms Turner and Denise T

Autumn Term 1

Teacher: Ms Turner

TA: Denise T

 

Welcome to the Autumn Term. I hope you all had a lovely break and are ready for learning.

Let's support one another to succeed in our learning journey. 

 

P.E.

Year 2's P.E. lessons will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays. Children should bring their PE kit in a separate bag. They will change for PE at school.

 

Reading record

Please support your child's reading development by reading with your child everyday for at least 10 mins. Reading records need to be signed daily and will be recorded and checked every Wednesday. Each week children will take home one reading for pleasure book that they are able to choose from the class or school library, and one reading book that is linked to their in-school phonics learning. Please note that the phonics books may be familiar to your child. The purpose of this is so that your child can increase their confidence and reading fluency. 

 

Please help your children take care of their books by encouraging them to carry their water bottle instead of placing it in their bookbag. 

 

Homework

Homework is given out on a Friday and we ask for it to be returned on the following Wednesday (unless stated otherwise in special circumstances). Please make sure you child brings their homework in on time, as it is beneficial to our learning.

 

Topic

You will have seen that our topic this term is ‘Wonder Women’. We will be exploring important women from the past including Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria, Mary Seacole, Florence Nightingale, Emily Davison, and Queen Elizabeth II. 

 

Thank you for supporting the year 2 team by supporting your child at home. I look forward to getting to know you and working with your amazing, resilient children! 

 

Last reminder; please ensure your child brings in a bottle of water to stay hydrated throughout the day and a rain coat to ensure they are prepared whatever the weather. 

 

Many Thanks,

Ms Turner and Denise T
