Gentleness (Year 2) Class
Hello, my name is Miss Attoh and I am so pleased to be your child’s class teacher.
Year 2 is an extremely important year, as the children finish their time in Key Stage 1. Therefore, m
In this first Autumn term, our class text is The Story Tree – Tales to Read Aloud. This is a collection of European folktales told by one of the master storytellers, Hugh Lupton. The themes and structure of this narrative fiction, offers inspiration to young readers and serve as a model for the development of their own story writing. For details about the related curricular activities, see the medium-term plan below.
Spellings and Times Tables will be undertaken each week and children will be expected to learn them and will be tested on them every Friday. Please encourage your child to use the words given in sentences. This will help them use the words in context and also practice the spellings. Children need to practice the 2,5 and 10 times tables.
Children are expected to read at home every day. Please sign the reading record every time you hear your child read. Children need to bring their reading record and their class reading book to school every We will change books every Tuesday and Friday.
This will be given on Fridays each week and will be expected to be completed by Tuesday the following week. It will usually be a Literacy and Maths task. Sometimes it may also be topic based. Each task should not take longer than 30 minutes to complete.
PE is on Wednesdays. Therefore, please ensure that earrings are removed on PE days due to safeguarding. Children must wear the appropriate PE kit – white top with black or red bottom to school on Tuesdays. They need to wear the school jumper as well.
My team and I are very delighted to start exploring and learning these new topics with your child, as we work together to develop and improve the skills they have acquired.
