Welcome to Year 2!
Sapphire Class is taught by Miss Simmons and supported by Ms Sheppard.
Year 2 is an incredibly important year, but also a year full of exciting challenges! English and maths are our core subjects but the children also participate in a range of subjects including: guided reading, science, history, geography, computing, music and PE. Handwriting, times tables and SPAG are a huge focus in Year 2. The children will also have fantastic opportunities throughout the year, like playing instruments and experiencing PE with sport coaches.
To support your child, please make sure that they learn their weekly spellings and read regularly with them after school. We follow the VIPERS skills when reading (please see below), so please ask questions linked to these skills when reading at home. After reading with them, please sign their reading journal with a comment. These will be checked daily. Children should also practise their times tables and can do this at home using ‘Times Tables Rockstars’ (each child has a personal login) and games such as ‘Hit the Button’ on www.topmarks.co.uk
Maths homework is set Monday-Thursday and weekends can then be spent practising number fluency (KIRFs) and reading for pleasure.
