Church of England School of the Resurrection

Belong, Believe, Achieve

Welcome to Year 2 

Please click here to see our Year 2 Spring term curriculum.

 

Year 2 is supported in their learning by Miss McLean, Miss Hunter and Mrs Grundy. Miss Greene will also be working with our class. The children work with different members of staff throughout the day, lead by Miss McLean, to help support their learning.

We aim to build upon the knowledge and skills gained in Year 1 by providing them with a curriculum that is creative, exciting and engaging for all learners. In Year 2 we are trying to encourage children to become more independent in the way they think and learn, so please try to let your children organise themselves when they come in in the mornings.  Parental support makes a huge difference to your child’s education.  We are lucky to have such supportive parents at Church of England School of the Resurrection.  We would appreciate continued support and encouragement at home to reinforce the learning that is taking place in the classroom.

 

 

 

 

Homework

Homework this year will consist of a learning log challenge (bronze, silver and gold challenges), reading, spellings and the SATs booster books.  

  • Always encourage your child to do their best when completing homework.   
  • Homework booklets (Maths, Reading and English) will be sent home every  week on a Friday, and must be returned the following Wednesday.  
  • Children are encouraged to use their Times Tables Rockstars accounts to practice their times tables at home. 
  • Learning log challenges will be given out on a Monday, and must be returned on the Friday of the next week (2 weeks); these are designed to be fun and interactive; make it the best piece of work you can! 
  • Spellings will be sent out on a Monday, to be tested on the Friday after.
  • These spellings will be year 1 and 2 common exception words, which children need to know!
  • Children can access spelling shed at home using their password and usernames (all children have these in their reading diary).
  • If possible, try to read with your child every night and sign their diaries. Ask them questions about the books they are reading; this will help them when answering questions for the reading SATs.
