    Reading and Reading Books:

    Children are heard read once a week by the class teacher as part of a guided reading group or a 1:1 reading session. They may also be heard by a learning support assistant or a parent helper in addition to this.

    Children in Year 2 are expected to independently change their reading books, as they need to, first thing when they enter the classroom in the morning.

    Key Dates for Year 2



    Tuesday 8th May - Nature's Giants workshop


    Thursday 12th July - Marwell Zoo



    Phonics homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be returned completed to school on the following Tuesday or Wednesday. Each Friday your child will receive a spelling sheet for daily practice of high frequency words or spellings related to their current phonics focus sounds. They will also receive an activity sheet to complete that will correlate with what they have focused on during the week. Please speak to your child's class teacher or phonics teacher if you have any queries around the phonics homework. 


    Extra Homework

    We welcome the children taking responsibility for their own learning outside of school. If your child completes a piece of extra homework please encourage them to bring this in so that we can mark it and add it to their ongoing work files. (This is also a great opportunity for the children to earn extra planet points).
