Welcome to Year 2 – Y2EK
Our staff for 2018/19:
Mrs Keown with Teaching Assistant Mrs Hague
Y2EK have started Year 2 in a positive and enthusiastic manner. They have settled in to their new learning environment well and are getting their teeth stuck into new learning.
We all work hard every day to ensure that our school core values underpin everything we do – children are eager to show they are aiming high and taking care in all they do.
This term in Literacy we will be focusing on fiction texts which will lead up to children writing a story themselves. We will then look at Non-fiction texts and write a Non-Chronological report based on an inspirational figure in history.
We follow the Hucklow writing sequence in order to maximise the children’s success in writing.
In maths we will focus on place value and move on to the four calculations as the term progresses. We will use lots of concrete apparatus to help secure our understanding and extend children’s learning by challenging them with reasoning and problem solving activities.
We have reading lessons every day. We follow a two week block of Guided Reading and then a one week block of inference/book study.
PE is on Friday afternoons – please ensure your child has a PE kit in school at all times.
We take part in the daily mile every day to help improve children’s fitness, mood and attitude to learning.
Homework will be sent home every two weeks – this is to be recorded in the children’s homework book.
Spellings are sent home weekly and will be tested the following week.
How you can help at home:
Please read with your child every day and record it in their reading planner. Allow children chance to read the book more than once to build up fluency and a deeper understanding of events.
Help children with their homework – make it fun!
Come and speak to me (Mrs Keown) if you have any questions or you have anything to share. I am available before and after school Monday – Thursday.
