Overview of the past week’s learning: Year 2 weekly snapshot 05.04.19
PE day is Thursday. Please make sure your child has their PE-kit with them on this day. The kit can be left in school for the half term or taken home sooner if you wish to wash it.
Water Bottles– Please provide your child with a named and full water bottle which they should bring to school daily. There is water available for refills as needed.

Please read with your child every night, no matter what level they are working at. Once you have read with your child, please sign and comment in the reading record. Then we will know when it is reading to be changed. Please ensure your child brings their reading book and record to school daily so that books can be changed as often as possible and children can be heard read by adults in school on a regular basis.
We have a Friday spelling session, usually linked to practising and learning specific spelling patterns or common exception words. These spellings will be sent home weekly once they have been taught in school. When writing their spellings please encourage your child to use cursive joins.
Weekly maths homework will consolidate the learning from the week.
Please ensure your child completes their homework and returns their folder to school by the following Wednesday.
