Reading Books

In Miss Glynn's class, books are changed once a week during 'Guided Reading' sessions. Please ensure that you have signed your child's orange reading record book when you have heard them read. Please comment on how they have read and also how they have responded to the comprehension questions that you have asked them. For examples of comprehension questions at your child's reading level, please refer to the example questions under the 'Useful Resources' section on our class page. 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.

 

Book change days:

Monday - Crash

Tuesday - Splat

Wednesday - Bang

Thursday - Whizz

Friday - Splash

 

   
P.E. Days Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Friday. 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 earings are not allowed to be worn in school at any time. It would be helpful if girls could have a pair of white ankle socks in their PE bag for the days they come to school wearing tights.
Morning Routine When children arrive in the morning they are expected to come into the classroom themselves and change out of their coats and outdoor shoes, putting their things away. The children then go to their places where they can do 'Early Morning Work' or read a book for pleasure. At 9:00 the classroom door is closed and registration is taken, finishing with morning prayer. Any child arriving after 9:00 must enter school through the Main Reception Area.

We will always strive to maintain these routines. However, on rare occasions, circumstances prevent us from following them exactly.
Statutory Assessments in Year 2
Children will be working throughout the year towards the final end of Key Stage 1 Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs). Children will be assessed on Reading; Writing (including Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar); Mathematics and Science.  All subjects are teacher assessed but some judgements are supported by tests.


Following the Curriculum Information Sessions, held for Year 2 parents at the beginning of the Autumn Term, parents will receive:

What we have been up to...

 

In Maths, we have been looking at place value. To help us, we used sweets, a chocolate bar and a kinder surprise to recognise the values of ones, tens and hundreds. This has really engaged the children as they have taken an investigation approach to mathematics.

 

We started the school year looking at The Day The Crayons Came Home in English. We learnt about what is important to write in a postcard and wrote our own ones. The children were able to talk about adventures around Hemel Hempstead, London and all over the world. It all seemed very exciting!

 

We are now studying Grendel- A Cautionary Tale About Chocolate. The children are really enjoying thinking about the setting of the book, learning how to draw in the style of Grendel, using lots of imaginative and amazing adjectives to describe the character and predicting what is going to happen next in the book. The children are really excited about continuing reading the book to find out what else happens!!

 

Our topic this half term is LONDON. During our topic work so far we have been looking at major landmarks in the United Kingdom and London itself. We have compared and contrasted the differences between a city and the countryside.
