We will be available at the start and end of the day to pass on or receive brief messages. If you wish to discuss something in more detail, please send a private message on SeeSaw or telephone the school office to arrange a meeting.
All children will bring home at least one home reading book each week along with their reading diary. Children have a dedicated day that their book is swapped, however they are also listened to at other times during the school day and so we ask that reading bags are brought into school everyday. We strive to foster your child’s love for reading and we engage them in wonderful, immersive books and a wide variety of rich, engaging and carefully selected texts. You can support us by reading with your child at least three times per week, more if possible.
Recommended books for Year 2
We follow a mastery maths programme and use the White Rose Maths planning resources.
Children are supported in a variety of approaches to their maths work to ensure sound mathematical understanding. The approaches used are as follows:
Concrete – children should have the opportunity to use concrete objects and manipulatives to help them understand what they are doing.
Pictorial – alongside concrete objects, children should use pictorial representations. These representations can then be used to help reason and solve problems.
Abstract – both concrete and pictorial representations should support children’s understanding of abstract methods
A suggested overview of the maths blocks can be viewed below however, due to COVID-19, we are adapting our curriculum and teaching to ensure that children have a secure understanding of the key learning targets in mathematics for their year. Further to this, regular teacher assessments, feedback and child engaged discussions inform our dynamic maths curriculum, which responds to the needs of every child. Please see SeeSaw for regular updates on what is being covered.
Useful maths websites for children
PE will take place on Thursday afternoons. Your child can come to school in sports clothes or PE kits on this day. Please make sure they have suitable footwear for sporting activities.
Your child will be given their weekly spelling list every Monday and a test will take place on the following Monday.
As well as ensuring your child learns their list, you can support their spelling understanding using Spelling Frame. Log-in cards have been given out to every child. Please access the website here: https://spellingframe.co.uk
