Welcome to Year 2
PE and Games are on a Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit (plain white top, black bottoms) to school on these days, including appropriate footwear. Please ensure earrings are removed for safety reasons.
Please make sure that your child is reading daily out loud as well as to themselves. It would be really helpful is you could support your child with their fluency but also asking questions about what they are reading to ensure that the children are understanding what they read. Please record this on your child’s reading diary using the Boom Reader (previously Go Read) app, so that they receive the relevant rewards.
Your child will also be using Times Table Rock Stars and will be given a log in for this. This is to support their timetable knowledge with quick games that can earn them points to change their avatar.
Look for opportunities to discuss numbers within the environment, simple addition problems while you’re at the supermarket etc.
Make sure your child is ready to learn and not tired when they comes to school and that they have eaten breakfast.
Be interested in what your child has been doing at school, encourage them to be inquisitive and follow their ideas through to a natural conclusion.
