Welcome to Year 2 – Y2KP
Mrs Keown & Mrs Pickering with teaching assistants – Miss Rowley & Mrs Hussain
In year 2 we enjoy an engaging and exciting curriculum. Whenever possible we bring learning to life by immersing children in real life events such as trips or visitors and we work closely with our partner school Beck to achieve the best learning outcomes possible for our children.
Y2KP have made an excellent and positive start to their Y2 journey. We are using our learning behaviours well in order to maximise our learning potential. Our children are showing real enthusiasm for the topics we are covering and are inspired to take their learning home.
We enjoy reading and Guided Reading sessions are taught daily with additional time included in the day for children to listen to stories and read for pleasure.
Phonics is taught discretely and children learn to apply these skills into their writing.
We are currently generating learning through our topic question ‘What could MY great achievement be?’
Spelling rules are taught weekly and a list of spellings is sent home for children to practise and be tested the following week.
Homework is sent home on a homework menu for children to select activities from. Additionally children can access mymaths.com to practise their mathematical skills at home.
PE is taught on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings. Please ensure PE bags are left in school for the half term.
ICT is taught on Monday afternoons.
Suggestions on how parents can help
Read with your child every day. Children will bring home school reading books each day – depending on the colour band, these will not change every day. Children should practise reading with you and listening to you read to them. Allow children chance to read the book more than once to build up fluency and a deeper understanding of events.
Practise the high frequency words and tricky words (see teacher if not sure).
Turn practising spellings and maths learn its into a game. Can they write them quicker than you?
Have fun with homework – make it an enjoyable activity, something you can do together at home.
