Welcome back to school and I hope that parents and children alike have had a great summer.
I am very much looking forward to our learning journey in Year 2. We have been discussing good learning habits and the importance of trying our best, even when we don’t get it right the first time. We have also chatted about checking what we have done once we have finished so we know it is our very best effort. The children have all been given a ‘Doodle Maths’ account and they are expected to complete their 5 a day activity. Spelling Frame is also online and can be accessed from any device and does not require an account. These activities will enhance the children’s learning if completed regularly
I have encouraged the children to read for fifteen minutes every evening after school to someone at home and I would appreciate your support in this. Once they are signed off in their records we can change them in school. I have asked the children to keep a list on the back of their reading records of the books they have read.
During Year 2 we will be covering lots of different topic areas, have a look on our polanning page for more details.
