We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and tell you a little bit about Year 2.
Class Teacher on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday is Kerry Hookham.
Class Teacher on Thursday and Friday is Chloe Rowland.
Teaching Assistants are Rachel Allen and Katy Simpson.
This term our topic is an Author study. We have chosen for the children to learn about Eric Carle and Mini Grey. Please see the topic overview for more information.
The children will be given a levelled reading book in from the classroom. They can change their books whenever they need to but need to stick to the same colour. We will teach the children to do this. There will also be books online for the children to read at their level. The books are connected to our phonic scheme, Rocket phonics. We ask that the children read four times a week for ten minutes. The children will have a reading record and we ask that parents or the child complete this after a reading session. We have a reading chart in the classroom and rewards for the children’s achievements in the form of certificates.
The children will be given spellings on a Monday morning which they will then be tested on the following Monday. These are based on the work we have be doing in phonics or they can be ‘tricky’ words that the children need to know how to spell.
The children will have a folder that will have homework in for the week. This could be literacy, maths or topic based. Homework will be handed out on a Monday and needs to be in by Friday. These are short activities that will take up to twenty minutes.
Please can we ask that your child has a full PE kit in school from Monday to Friday. The PE kit needs to include a t-shirt, shorts, trainers and a hoodie for when it is cold.
Children have access to water bottles at all times. They are placed in the classroom and children are encouraged to drink regularly.
Morning drop off’s and picking up.
Please bring your children to the classroom door. There is a member of staff at the door who is able to have a quick chat if needed.
Please come to the classroom door to pick up at 3.15pm. If your child attends the after school club we will walk them to it in the school hall.
Previously the children have undertaken SATS in year 2 but these have been stopped from this year. Your child will have three assessments per year and their progress will be shared with you in parents meetings and the annual report.
Apps and websites to help your child:
Google Classroom - We will use the App to share any extra or important information or work samples.
White Rose Maths App – this is a great, free App to use with your child to help with arithmetic.
Rising stars – rocket phonics – You will have a login to access reading books and activities.
We are really excited to teach your children and meet you. There will be a class meeting and dates for this will be on parent mail. If you have any questions, please pop and see us and we will do our best to answer them.
Kerry Hookham and Chloe Rowland.
