This year, Year 2 children will be given their new reading books on a Monday. They will be given either two shorter books or one longer book to read at home over the week. Please make use of Bug Club for additional home reading- every little counts! Books will need to be returned to school on a Monday. To prevent cross-contamination between homes, reading books will be 'quarantined' for a week before being in use again.
Children will read with an adult at least once per week, but reading will underpin much of our day-to-day learning in Year 2. We will read daily as a class in 'story time', complete reading activities, have time to relax in the book corner and use books to enhance our every day learning too.
Reading regularly at home is so important; a little and often approach usually works best! Please read at home with your child so that they have the chance to practise skills learned in school and foster that love of reading at home as well as in the classroom. Many thanks for your support!
Year 2 will have outdoor PE every Thursday. Sometimes this may change, but Miss Turner will inform you via Marvellous Me. We will have indoor PE on some Mondays also. Please can you ensure on these days that PE kit is in school, long hair is tied back and earrings are removed (unless children are able to do this themselves).
We will be going outside for PE on colder days too, so please send in longer PE bottoms and a warm jumper/ fleece/ sweater for children to wrap up in. A pair of old trainers is also useful for those days when the field is wet!
