Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful holiday and are ready for a brand new year. Here is some information about the Spring term.
Click here for 2017-18 Curriculum information for Year 2 Classes.
This term, we will continue to focus on developing reading skills. We ask that children read daily with an adult and that the adult signs or comments in the reading records afterwards. Please ensure when you hear your child read, you ask them questions based on the pages they have read to help them gain a better understanding. Your child’s book will be changed once reading books have been completed and reading records have been signed. Remember, every signature counts towards the Reading Reads awards!
Home learning will continue to be provided in children’s yellow Home Learning book. In their books, they will have a list of weekly spellings to learn by Friday and maths activities to complete. In addition, there will be a set of topic related activities for your child to complete fortnightly. Please complete one activity per fortnight. Dates for handing in Topic home learning are provided in your child’s home learning book.
In Year 2, children will have Spanish lessons every Monday afternoon. Mr Dorado will teach the children a range of Spanish phrases and songs.
Singing Assembly will take place each week.
There are two class assemblies for Year 2 this term. Chestnut class have their assembly on Friday 8th February 2018 on Chinese New Year and Cedar class have their assembly on Friday 23rd February 2018 all about the right to learn. We hope to see you there.
Your child will take part in a PE lesson with a coach each week. Please ensure that they have suitable PE kit e.g. black jogging bottoms or shorts, white t-shirt, black pumps/trainers.
It is very important that your child attends school every day. Our school target is to have above 96% attendance across the school. Each week, the class that has the highest attendance will get a reward. In addition, please make sure you are punctual for drop off and home time.
Please make sure your children are wearing black school shoes. We have noticed that some children have been wearing trainers. This is not uniform and you will receive a letter home if they continue.
• Uniform – Please adhere to the High View Uniform code. Monogramed items (jumpers, cardigans and book bags) can be obtained online from www.mapac.com or telephone 01923 255 525. Other standard uniform items can be sourced locally.
• School dinners – If a child wishes to change from school dinners to packed lunch or vice versa, they may only do so at the beginning of each half term. Payment should be made online using SIMS Agora. Details can be obtained from the school office.
