Important information for Year 2 parents
Please ensure that all earrings are removed on your child's PE day. If your child is unable to remove them, they will sadly miss their PE lesson due to the Essex policy on earrings. Please can you also make sure that your child's clothes are labelled. This includes both PE and general school uniform and avoids any items
ending up in lost property or being taken home by somebody else by mistake.
Please make sure that all books, including the Reading Diary, are kept in the zippy wallet and are in school every day.
It is important to listen to your children read every day and record this in their diary. Ask them lots of questions about the text to help them understand what they are reading.
Homework is sent half termly, with lots of activities that can be chosen from. Each week children are expected to read daily for 10 minutes, access the Readiwriter program to practise key spellings and use the Numbots app to support quick recall of number facts. There are a range of other fun activities to choose from that support learning in class. Alongside this, each half term there is a project to work on relating to our topic. These are shared and celebrated in class.
