Welcome back Year 2! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break! Starting from January, our new class teacher is Miss Karimjee and our teaching assistant is still Miss Fell. Miss McRae will continue teaching Year 2 on a Thursday afternoon.
A few changes:
Homework will be sent home every Friday and is due back by Wednesday. Spellings will also be sent home every Friday and tested the following Friday. In addition to this, please read with your child every night and record it in their reading record. Reading with your child daily helps to not only develop their fluency, comprehension and inferential skills but it also helps improve their writing and spellings.
Our P.E. days are as follows:
Tuesday - outdoor
Friday - indoor
This term we will be focusing on tennis and dance skills.
If you have any questions or concerns at any point please do not hesitate to speak to the class teacher at the beginning or end of the day. I believe a big part of your child's success is a result of strong school-home links and communication.
Reading at Home
In Year 2, we are very enthusiastic about reading and encourage the children to read for pleasure at every opportunity. It is also an important foundation for their learning, as without the ability to read, the children will find all other areas of the curriculum tricky.
