Year 2



Welcome to the Year 2 page.  Our class teachers are Miss Dhami and Mrs Sandiford.

Year 2 Routines

Reading – We will listen to each child read in Guided Reading Groups once per week. Additional one to one reading may take place during the week. Each day children take their independent reading book home as we encourage daily reading. A reading log is kept in Reading Records so that we know reading has been completed. In line with the new curriculum, we will ask for independent reading books to be read twice before changing them. This is to develop fluency in reading and support comprehension skills. When children have read the book twice, we will issue the next independent reading book. To encourage reading at home, children are issued a raffle ticket for reading and these are entered into a weekly draw where a small prize can be won.  In addition to the independent reading book, children can choose a library book from our classroom selection.  They will be able to change the book as often as they want as long as it has been signed at the back of their Reading Record.

Spellings    Spellings will be sent home on a Thursday and they will be checked on the following Friday in a spelling test. Spellings will be practised daily in school.

Homework  Homework books will be sent home on Thursdays.  The work that is sent home will be a mixture of Topic, English and Maths work. Homework should be completed by  the following Wednesday so we have time to mark the work before issuing the next piece of homework.

PE – PE will be on Monday and Thursday.  Child need a white t-shirt, dark shorts and plimsolls.

Staffing – Miss Dhami teaches the class Monday to Thursday each week, and Mrs Sandiford teaches on a Friday. Mrs Macdonald, Mrs Grayson and Mrs Clover are Teaching Assistants that also work in Year 2.
