2J

Welcome to the Class 2J web page!

Hello Parents and Carers,

We hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable Summer; we look forward to welcoming the children back on Thursday 2nd September. 

Just to let you know a few important pieces of information for the new term ahead. 

Year 2 arrival time is 8:30am and end of day collection time is 3:00pm.

Being Organised:

Please keep an eye on weather forecasts each evening so your child has appropriate clothing e.g. a raincoat if it is going to rain. Drinks bottles should be brought in by every child so they can hydrate themselves regularly and keep focussed on their learning. Class based bottles should be filled with water (squash is only permitted with lunch). Please ensure that all drinking bottles, items of uniform and book bags are labelled with your child names so they can easily be returned if they get misplaced. Please encourage your child to bring a backpack or reading book bag on days when you want them to return and swap over reading books. Book bags can be purchased from the school office. Keep up-to-date with the class stories on Dojo and Mr Flack's weekly newsletter as this will be you informed of upcoming events and important information. 

School Meals:

Ensure you book your child's school meals, via Parent Pay,  by Friday for the following week. If you have any problems with this, please contact the main school office. 

Sport

PE is on Wednesdays for the whole class. Children need to wear their school-issue PE kits (navy T-shirt & shorts) to school. Plimsolls or plain black trainers are permitted footwear and children are allowed to wear tracksuit trousers and a hoodie when the weather is inclement. Please visit the office if you need to order new PE kit. 

Swimming/PE- On Fridays there will be an additional Swimming or PE session to keep Class 2J active. A swimming coach will teach swimming sessions and the class teacher/s will take the non-swimming group out to carry out an additional PE session. The class will be split into two groups A and B. Group A will swim terms 1,3 & 5 and Group B 2,4 & 6. A PE timetable lists the children in each group and has been published via our Class Dojo page. 

Reading at home

Our Reading Challenge continues and if we would like to win, we need all parents reading with their child for at least 10 minutes, 5 days a week. We ask parents to log in their child's Home Reading Record each night they have read over the course of a week. The whole school Reading Challenge is Super Heroes- Reading Powers themed this year and each night a child reads to a grown-u at home they add a Dojo point to their class' total score. Regular reading support at home will help your child, the more they practice the better they will get. Our staff are always on hand to help with any concerns or advice you may seek with regards to support your child's reading journey. 

Homework (Set each week)

Reading three to five times a week to a grown u at home- comment and signed in their yellow Reading Record.

Spellings- these will focus on red/tricky words which will be set by your child's RWINc/phonics teacher. The will be tested on these each time they complete their phonics reading book.

Maths- Times tables (X2, 3, 5 & 10), telling the time, number bonds 10, 20 and 100 and other areas of mathematics being covered in Year 2.

Writing- Children will explore writing through the traditional tale The Three Little Pigs and then move on to an alternative remodeling called The Big Bad Pig. 

Maths- Core skills will be covered this term including; Working within 10, 20, 50 and 100.  Place value, order and comparing numbers. Properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Number bonds for 20 and 100.

We welcome parents to come to chat with us about their child's development in the playground after school and love to hear about their successes at home. We are always here to help in any way we can. If you prefer to contact via Dojo or the school office then please do. 

Please routinely visit our class webpage as it features updates of the children's learning and up-to-date information and announcements.
