Reading

We would encourage children in year 2 to read every day and suggest that reading is a minimum of 4 times during the week. The children can change their books every day and we would ask that parents make a comment and sign their reading record books to communicate with the teacher. Teachers will check and sign reading record books once a week. Each week there is a space for the children to make a comment on what they have read. Some suggestions would be:

  • What has been your favourite story this week? why?
  • Describe one of the characters.
  • Draw a picture of your favourite part of the story.
  • Write down any unusual or tricky words that you have learnt this week.
  • Non-fiction - Write down an interesting fact from your book.

RESPECT and Behaviour

During this half term the children will be learning about the word RESILIENCE and what this means to them. They will be thinking about how they can use resilience to overcome difficulties and to help them to progress academically and socially. Each week the teachers will nominate one child that they have noticed being resilient. These children will be known as our ‘Learning Heroes’. They will receive a special certificate in assembly and will have their picture displayed on the wall. During the first week back at school the children have created class charters in which they discuss their own roles and responsibilities with regards to their behaviour and conduct in school. It has been a very positive way to start the school year with the children keen to follow their charters and stay in the positive behaviour zones.

The children will be learning about Ameila Earhart. She was the first female to fly across the Atlantic ocean. She was a person who displayed a lot of resilience to achieve the success that she did.

Year 2 Curriculum

The children will begin their literacy work this term by looking at a range of different traditional tales. They will look at the similarities and difference in these stories and describe the characters. The children will then create their own version of a traditional tales. Why not take a trip to the library and read as many traditional tales as you can find?
