Reading Books

Reading books are changed once a week in Birch class. Your child will receive three new reading books, on the day that it is their table's turn to change their books. It is expected that the children independently change their books and record their new books in their reading record. Please ensure that you record each time you have listened to your child read, making comments about how they have read, e.g. Were they fluent? Also, please comment on how they responded to any comprehension questions that you asked. The children are expected to read every evening, for around ten minutes. Please note that the books your child takes home are books that they are fluent in; this is to encourage reading for pleasure but also to give them the opportunity to work on their understanding through comprehension questioning. Your child will be reading the book band above in class, during guided reading and will be moved up to that band when they are ready.

 

P.E. Days Our P.E. days are Monday (indoors) and Wednesday (outdoors). P.E. kits should be kept in school at all times. We will send them home over the school holidays. Long hair needs to be tied back and earrings are not allowed to be worn in school at any time. 

Doors open at 8.45am and children have a daily morning activity to complete at their desk. Once they have completed this activity, it is expected that the children get a book from the 'Reading Garden' and read it quietly in their place. The door closes at 9am sharp and it is then that the register is taken.


Statutory Assessments in Year 2
In the Summer term, all children (who are working within KS1 national curriculum), will be participating in Standard Attainment Tests (SATs). The areas that the children will be tested in, are:

 

  • English comprehension- working at age related expectations and working at greater depth
  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG)
  • Writing
  • Mathematics- arithmetic and problem solving
