Welcome to Year 2

Ms Shenelle Markland

Class Teacher

Welcome to Year 2.

Outline Year 2

My name is Ms Markland and we have Kesha helping us in our class.

Reading books are changed every day so please ensure your child brings their book bags every day.

Your child should be reading for 20 minutes each night. They can read to themselves and then tell you about the book or they can read with you and discuss the story as they are going along. We also have longer story books for the children to read independently and these are changed as needed.

PE is on a Wednesday and a Friday. Please provide a clean PE kit (white t-shirt and black bottoms) and a bottle of water on these days. The PE kit should be in a separate bag and not be worn under their uniforms!

We also do Fun Word Friday every Friday where the children have to choose a fun (interesting/unusual/exciting) word starting with a given letter every Friday morning. Please support your child in choosing appropriate words, discussing the meaning and how to use them.

Our topics are listed on the Teaching and Learning main page, so please have a look and support your child’s learning at home. If you have any questions about any of our topic, please come and speak to me.

Here are the next 200 high frequency words:http://www.highfrequencywords.org/next-200-high-frequency-word-list-precursive.html - Please help us to ensure that your child can read, spell and write these words.
