Key Information for Autumn Term

 

Whilst we will do our utmost to provide as safe an environment for pupils as we can, we remain in an unprecedented situation.We aim to be very clear and honest about what provision will look like to support families.

 

  • Children should wear full uniform and black school shoes.
  • Children should not need to bring bags, pencil cases, PE kits, lunch boxes or other personal items to school.
  • Children should bring a water bottle with their name marked on it.
  • Children will be in their class groups and will stay in their class groups for the day, including break and lunch times.
  • Children will be provided with their own pens, pencil etc for use in school.
  • School lunches will be packed lunches for the first half of the term.
  • If bringing a snack or packed lunch from home, please send in a disposable paper bag, not a lunch box.
  • Staff will encourage hand hygiene and positive hygiene practices throughout the day.

 

Homework


Each week children will receive a piece of homework. It will normally be set on a Friday, to be completed by the following Tuesday. If your child is finding any part of it difficult, please ask their Class Teacher who will be happy to help. Weekly spelling strategies will be set to practise to support the children's writing.

 

Children in Year 2 should be reading at home for a short time every day. Regular practise really helps them to become confident readers. Children will be responsible for changing and choosing their own books. Please continue to sign the reading record books so that we know that your child has shared their book with you. This is monitored by class teachers.

PE


Children will have PE twice a week. Your child will need a full PE kit from the beginning of the academic year. The PE kit is normally kept in school on the children’s peg and sent home at the end of every half-term to be washed, however during the Autumn Term, children are not to bring their kit to school due to the measures we are taking to minimise the risk of coronavirus in school. Instead, parents will be informed of the days in which children are to wear appropriate sport wear to school for the whole day.


 

 

Curriculum

 

The Year 2 team use the "No Nonsense Spelling" programme, designed to meet the needs of the National Curriculum in a manageable way. The programme builds on high-quality phonics teaching by supporting children in understanding morphology, spelling strategies, the orthographic nature of words, patterns, word origins, common exception words and personal spellings. The team also use various interactive online platforms to support lessons, including VLE, My Maths and Nrich.
