Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.

Welcome to Year 2's class page. Here you will find all of the information you need to keep up to date with our learning. If there is anything else that you need, please do not hesitate to see me at the end of the school day. Click here to see further information about our school day. 

SATs 

 

 

PE

Our PE lessons are on Thursdays with Mrs Wisniewska. Children are expected to come to school in their PE kits for the day. Please ensure that children have an inside and outside kit as the weather is getting colder. 

Reading

Your child will be given their reading books, but you will not receive the reading diaries. These will be kept in school. You will be given ‘post it notes’ for you to record the date and feedback, which will then be placed in your child’s reading record/diary. When you return your child’s reading book, it will be stored in a separate box for 3 days before putting back into circulation.

Spellings

Spellings will be sent home once a week and be tested the following week in the form of a quiz. They are based on spelling patterns that we have investigated in class and a selection of common exception words. The children should be encouraged to look at the way the pattern fits into the word to help them remember it.

Spellings are best worked on little and often: 5 or 10 minutes every day is more beneficial than one long session. It is also very helpful if you can encourage your child to apply the spellings in context by writing a few sentences using these words and, of course, using new or unfamiliar words in conversation.

Snacks

Here at St Luke's we encourage all students to make healthy choices, and promote healthy learning and education. As such, students are provided a free healthy school snack every day for play time. Students may bring in their own snacks, so long as it is a healthy substitute (e.g fruit, vegetables, fruit-based granola bars etc.). No nuts please. 

This also means that fizzy drinks or sugary juices are not permitted. Only water should be brought to school in your child’s bottle. Please label the bottle with your child's name.
