Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to our page all about Year 2, like most years we are always very busy and have lots of exciting (as well as important) things planned for the year! In Year 2 we have two classes, Ecton and Wilby.
In Ecton there is Mrs Owen (Class Teacher) and Mrs Wilson (Teaching Assistant).
In Wilby there is Mrs Archer (Class Teacher) and Mrs Owen (Teaching Assistant).
Mrs Lightfoot and Mrs Hill will be covering during the week in both Ecton and Wilby so you may see their faces at the end of the day!
In Year 2 we try and encourage the children to be more responsible for their belongings, it is their responsibility to put their reading book in the box every day and to choose a new book if they need to. We try and read with them when we can to assess their reading levels. Your child will read with an adult in school however, this is not always recorded in their home reading diary but in our school records and guided reading sessions. Please try and listen to your child read 5 times a week, this helps with phonics, comprehension and has a positive impact on their writing!
Spellings are handed out on a Friday, to be tested on a Thursday, please try and practise these with your child as much as you can, see if they can read them, spell them and put them into sentences.
Our focus on times table for Year 2 is the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables so any practise you can do with these would be great. Other homework will be handed out as and when appropriate.
Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday, please make sure that your child has a named PE kit in school and that they have their hair tied back with earrings taken out in advance if this is not something they can do independently.
If you have any questions or queries please let us know!
