Useful information/ Gwybodaeth ddefnyddiol:

Reading in Year 2                       

All reading books should be returned to school every Thursday, along with your child’s reading record.  Please could you sign your child’s reading record to let us know that they have read their books? A comment on how they are reading at home would also be helpful for us. Your child will be listened to in school individually on a weekly basis.

Guided reading will be starting in class after half term and your child will be reading and taking part in discussions in a small group twice a week.  During these sessions they will also be playing literacy games, practising weekly spelling words and working on their individual work targets.

If your child is a daily reader, please could they bring in their books on a Monday? Their books will then be kept in school from Monday to Friday and returned to you for the weekend.


Spelling in Year 2

Differentiated spelling lists are provided weekly for the children to learn. They are introduced,explained and practised on Tuesdays and then tested the following week. We recommend that children practise these spellings for 5-10 minutes each day to ensure they are familiar with them.

Maths –  support and challenge

Children have access to interact maths activities via the Sumdog and Abacus websites. Log in and password details for these resources are located on the front inside cover of your child’s reading record.
