Children are expected to read to an adult at home daily. Two reading books will be changed and sent home on a Tuesday and collected in on a Monday. Please indicate that you have read with your child in the reading diary. Children's books will be changed when you have read them twice.
Children will be doing double PE on a Thursday. Please send your child in to school in their PE kit on this day.
Please see the list of Year Two common exception words. These are the spellings children are expected to be able to spell by the end of the year.
By the end of Year Two children are expected to be confident with the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.
Our topic for the first two weeks is 'Olympics'. We will then introduce our autumn term topic, 'Indian Spice'.
