Year 2 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Year 2!
I can’t believe we are at the summer term already – where is the year going?
We will continue to change our reading books every Tuesday. A reminder that the expectation is for very child to read at least 3 times to an adult at home each week. The children know it is my dream to one Friday be able to give out reading stickers to every member of our class. Though we have come close on a few occasions, this dream hasn’t quite been achieved yet so please support your child with this on a weekly basis.
If your child reads their chosen books before we come to change them, please encourage them to re-read these for further understanding and increased fluency or alternatively select books from Frodsham Library to extend their reading across different genres. It is more important that the children fully comprehend what they are reading as well as being able to make inferences from the text rather than race through the coloured levels. However most important of all is that they are enjoying their reading and successfully accessing a wide range of material.
English and maths homework will continue to be given out weekly on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday. Please can I ask that the children regularly log into their TTRockstars account, even when this is not explicitly set as homework, to ensure they are progressing towards their next times table challenge.
PE takes place on a Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school. PE kit should include appropriate footwear (pumps for indoor activities and trainers for outdoor activities), a jumper (weather dependent) and, for girls, spare socks if they tend to wear tights. Long hair should always be tied back but this is especially important for PE and earrings must be removed. If your child cannot do this independently, please ensure this is done before school.
Children learn best when they are well hydrated, so please could you ensure your child has a named water bottle in school every day. They will have opportunities to refill these at the water fountain throughout the day.
Parents Information Evening
On Wednesday 3rd May at 5pm we will be holding an information evening for parents in the school hall regarding SATs and our upcoming residential to Foxhowl. There will be a short presentation followed by an opportunity to ask any remaining questions. Miss Riddiough has kindly agreed to attend as she has led this residential for a number of years so might be better placed to answer any more complex questions! Please see the attached letter which contains initial information, cost and details of how to pay.
As ever, I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Due to the time constraints, we ask that only vital messages are passed on at the start and end of the day. You can always contact me via email or by telephoning the school office and we can arrange a mutually convenient time for a chat to discuss any other issues.
Here’s to a happy and productive final term!
Best wishes, Mrs Edge.
