Year 2

Highlight of the week

The children have had a fantastic week and have really settle in to their new class and new routines.  As part of their learning in year 2, each week they will complete Rainbow Challenges linked to what they are learning about in the different subjects. They will take photos of what they do during this time and upload to their portfolio on ClassDojo.   We have also been reading 'The Colour Monster' this week and the children have discussed their favourite words and phrases from the book.

Suppoprting your child at home

Please read with your child 3x a week and place a H in a circle so that it i clear that this reading has happened at school. I will check diaries daily for any messages.

Here is a reading book mark where you will find questions you can ask your child whilst they are reading to you.

Practise letter formation at home.

Curly caterpillar letters

By the end of keystage 1 children are expected to be able to read and spell these words.


Homework Expectations – Year 2

Homework will be set every Friday  on Class Dojo and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Pupils are expected to complete all set tasks. 

Additionally, children must read and record their reading in their diaries at least three times each week. 

Homework is expected to be of the same standard as work in school, with neat handwriting, diagrams in pencil and care taken to include appropriate punctuation and good spelling.
