Reading

As a class we really enjoy reading and your child should aim to read at least 20 minutes a day. On completion of reading a book an AR test needs to be completed to review your child's understanding of the book.

80% is the passmark and if your child successfully achieves this for a number of books they may move up a level.

Reading is vitally important to your child's progress in all areas of the curriculum.

History

We will be looking at the Romans.

Art and DT

The children will be examining Mosaics and how they are created developing their skills across the term to create their own interpretations.

Homework 

Our homework is given out once a week on a Friday and should be returned by the Wednesday of the following week to allow for it to be marked. It is essential that work is completed as it is selected to support the learning for that week. The homework comprises of either: handwriting, TTRockstars or comprehension.

Times tables

We use Times tables rock stars to support your child's learning. It is essential that they access the website regularly to support development in the recall of the facts. The quicker your child can recall the information, the quicker they will progress up the leader board.  Year 2 are expected to be able to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and their associated division facts.  We have a weekly tables test on a Wednesday afternoon - so keep practising!
