Year 2 - Mrs Ayling

The Year 2 staff would like to extend a warm welcome to you! We look forward to working with all the children and their families, to help them grow into individuals of good character and develop and nurture their academic careers. We will do the best possible job we can to make sure your children are always learning, laughing and ‘making their best better’.

Year 2 is an important year for learning, it is the year when children should become competent and confident in all areas, but particularly in reading, writing and maths. To ensure that the children become the best they can be, it is important that support in all three areas is being provided at home as well as at school. 

SATs

Please be aware that in the summer term year 2 will have KS1 SATs which will test their progress over the last two years. It is important that children attend school every day and attendance during SATs week will be compulsory.

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit of a white T-shirt and black shorts, including trainers or plimpsols as PE will take place outside whilst the weather permits. Children may have jogging bottoms and jumpers for colder weather.

Please ensure girls have their hair tied up. Please ensure earrings are taken out. Please remember warm outside clothes during this winter period as the children will go outside whenever possible.


Reading

Please support us by taking the time to listen to your child read as often as possible. As well as listening to your child read, please ask them questions about the book.  Please see the accompanying ‘bookmark’ for prompt questions and ideas. We appreciate that you all lead busy lives, but just five minutes of extra reading a day can really aid progress in reading.

Reading books will  only be changed once a week, this is because the National Curriculum states that children need at least a week to fully understand and learn a story to be used within their learning.

There will be termly rewards for children who have read the most: reading once a week at home will get the children a sticker, reading more than once a week will get the children lots of stickers. The child with the most stickers will get a reading prize at the end of term.

Inside the reading records you will find some pages to support you and your child  with their phonics.
