Welcome to summer in Year 2

We hope you are enjoying the brighter spring days, the children clearly are.

The children are all working extremely hard and should be feeling very proud of themselves, as we do.

Reading

We will continue to change books each Wednesday. Please help your child to make sure they have their books and diaries in school each day as Guided Reading sessions occur daily. If your child reads their chosen books before the following Wednesday please encourage them to re-read these for further understanding or increased fluency or alternatively select books from the local Frodsham library to extend their reading range across different genres.

Homework

Phonics and Maths / My Maths activities will continue to be sent home each Friday and it would be helpful if they could be returned as soon as possible during the following week, by Wednesday at the latest. Please feel free to help your child with their tasks and to write any comments as appropriate to indicate how your child managed the activity.

Weekly Challenge

The children will be told what the challenge for each week is and their progress towards achieving this will be monitored during school. Challenges will be along the line of:- learning number facts / times tables, learning spellings, researching facts, practising handwriting patterns, learning a new skill for example.

Life in 1953

Our main topic of work this term is history based - ‘What was life like when the Queen was crowned?’. Within this topic the children will be finding out about the Queen and her role in the world but also looking at life for children in the 1950s. It was lovely last year to welcome some grandparents into school to share with the children how they had celebrated the coronation in 1953 as youngsters – if anyone would be willing to do this again I can guarantee a class of very eager children ready to listen and learn.

Residential Visit to Foxhowl - Delamere Forest

We have booked for a one-night residential visit to Foxhowl Centre in Delamere. The dates are 6th to 7th of June 2017. The approximate cost for this will be £75, however this will be confirmed as soon as possible. The children are getting really excited about this and we have begun to chat about some of the activities that we will be doing whilst there. You are invited to a meeting on the 3rd May at 5pm to find out more.

Year Two SATS

We will be completing our SATS in Year 2 over the weeks of May 15th and May 22nd. The children will be working on these in small groups with myself (Miss Riddiough). We are constantly reminding the children that all they have to do is their best and that we are so proud of all that they are achieving this year in school. To allow for these two weeks to flow smoothly and so that all the children can complete these, please can you make sure your child is in school daily and on time.

Thank you for all your support over the year so far and we look forward to continuing to work with you over the coming months. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please ask for a chat at the end of the school day when we will be more than willing to spend some time with you.
