PE kits and days
We will be having two hours of PE a week, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
It is very important that your child comes to school in a suitable outdoor PE kit with trainers.
Spelling Shed helps children to practise their spellings via a simple game. The game gives four different degrees of support in the form of difficulty modes: Easy, Medium, Hard and Extreme. Higher levels allow a higher score to be achieved but children can practise as much as they like on lower levels before trying to gain high scores. The scores achieved give a league position and each class has its own league position within a school league and Spelling Shed’s world league.
Once your child has their login information they can access our online game via http://play.spellingshed.com. The class will be tested every Friday. The idea is that your child practices their spellings at home via the online 'Spelling Shed' resource as described above. If you do not have access to this, then please use the list below. Please ask if your child is unsure of which 'Stage' they are to learn.
Times Tables Rock Stars is a wonderful maths resource for your child to learn and practice their times tables to improve fluency and speed. The fun online resource is incredibly effective and highly recommended. It has been thoroughly enjoyed by many previous pupils in Year 2! Your child has already been given their login details but if you need them again please let me know and I will be happy to help.
NumBots is an online maths game which if played little and often will significantly improve your child's recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts. These are critical foundations in maths so we are excited by the impact NumBots will have,. Your child's login details are the same as Times Tables Rockstars, but if you do have any issues logging in please let me know.
School Jam is an app for schools featuring fun, easy-to-use maths activities to help you help your child with their learning and help them to make better progress in class. With School Jam, I send quick, fun activities for you to do with your child, directly linked to the maths they are learning at school. School codes have already been given out, but please let me know if you would like it again and I will be happy to help.
Things we need
A bottle of water (no juice please in case of sticky spillages!)
A healthy snack for break
Book bag with reading book and reading record
Year 2 is full of amazing children and we want to celebrate every success and achievement during this year both inside and outside of school. We would love to hear about all the amazing things your child does, so please tell us about them.
As a team, we are always here for you. If you need to discuss anything, please let us know. If you would like a longer meeting to talk about your child’s needs please make an appointment so we can discuss your queries without feeling rushed. If you need any other information please do not hesitate to ask.
Many thanks for your continued support,
