Hello and welcome to our new Year 2 classes!
In Year 2 we have Pine class with Miss Andrews who is helped by Mrs Gratrick. We also have Cedar Class with Miss Vermeulen who is helped by Mrs Davey and Miss Munye.

Phonics - Phase 6
Year 2 is an important year in KS1 because it is when we sit the KS1 SATs.
At this stage of the year, the children will be working on multiplication, division and fractions in Maths. In English, we will be extending our writing by using a variety of sentence types, such as command, exclamation, question and statement.
In our phonics groups, we are focused on our spelling, punctuation and grammar. Our grammar includes use of different word types, such as adverb, verb, noun, adjective, as well as understanding where exclamation marks, question marks and capital letters go.
Here are some of the ways you can help your child at home:
Reading with your child every day and ensuring their reading diary is signed by an adult
Ensuring homework is completed
Practicing the 2s, 3s, 5s and 10 times tables, with the child reciting “1 times 2 is 2”
Practicing spellings weekly
Logging in to Lumio to practice maths
If you have any questions please speak to Miss Andrews or Miss Vermeulen on the playground at the end of the day, or get in touch with the school office to arrange an appointment.
We are so excited for our first term with our new classes!
