Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

 

 

Welcome to Year 2's class page! Year 2 have settled well into their new class and are working very hard. We have an exciting year planned at St. Joseph's and we cannot wait to continue making lots of memories with your child and to ‘have life and have it to the full’ as our Mission Statement promises.

 

This page will be filled with our class news, photographs of the different and exciting activities we are taking part in in class and around school! We will also update you with any useful educational websites that might be of interest to you and your child.

Important information

 

  • To develop your child's reading skills it is important that they read every day. Please could you sign their Reading Record book whenever they read with you.
  • Homework books will be given out on a Friday and homework is returned on Wednesday.
  • The weekly spelling test will take place on a Friday.
  • PE is on Thursdays. All children will need black shorts, a red t-shirt and black pumps or trainers. Unfortunately they will be unable to join in if they don't have the correct kit.
  • It is important that your child continues to learn their times tables. Year 2 are expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and division facts by the end of the year and any help you can give them is very much appreciated.

Times Tables Rockstars

 

 

Times tables are very important at St. Joseph's and we are always looking for new ways to improve. Soon after Year 2 have been taught the Multiplication and Division unit in Maths in Autumn 2 they will be provided with a username and password which will be found in their reading record books. We would be very grateful if you could encourage your child to play this fun yet educational game at home if they have access to a computer, laptop, ipad or other tablet. Each child has been challenged to learn their 10 times tables initially, although we will be keeping an eye out for those ready to move on to their 5's and 2's. Thank you again for your continued support.

Instruction Writing

We have begun learning about instruction writing in our English lessons. Here are some photos of the children playing some playground games. They had to read the instructions in their groups in order to find out how to play them
