Welcome to Year 2.  In Year Two we start to take more responsibility for our own learning and are becoming more independent in everything that we do.

How can you help your child?

Read, read, read.............Our homework policy clearly states that all children should read every day at home with you.  Reading is a fundamental life skill and children learn so much from reading to you.  Reading to your child is also a really beneficial way to help to develop a love of reading.  The children read as much as possible during the school day including individually, in groups and as part of the whole class.  Children are also read to on a regular basis and as often as time permits. 

Maths skills - talk about numbers and maths in as many different contexts as you possibly can, from thinking about who is the tallest in the house to working out how many sweets are left in a bag to noticing numbers all around.  Anything you can do really does help. For lots more ideas please refer to the mental maths booklet sent home during the autumn term.

Handwriting practice - in year 2 all children are asked to form their letters including a lead off or a flick.  They will only be asked to join when they can form all of their letters starting and ending in the correct places.  A leaflet detailing how to form each of the letters is sent during the early part of the year but if you require another copy please just ask.

Encourage independence. 

Use the drop-down menu on the left hand side to find our class blog.  It contains lots of information about what has been going on in Year 2.

In each of the sections below, you will find information about what we are learning each term.  Please note that updates will be added as each new term begins.  We have left last year's information on at the moment to give you a flavour of what might be ahead!
