Welcome to Year Two.  Please read below for general information about expectations. 

Reading

Please ensure that your child reads daily.  They should be reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction books.  It is important that they read to an adult/older sibling as often as possible.  Please ask your child questions about what they have read and encourage them to give opinions about the book.  Your child will be provided with a post-it note each day for you to write your comments on after hearing them read.  They will return this to school and stick it inside their reading 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. 

READING DIARIES MUST REMAIN IN SCHOOL.

Every Friday your child will have the opportunity to borrow a library book.  These are only changed once a week.

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.

Home Learning

Due to the current situation, the majority of Home Learning will take place online.  Any child who doesn't have access to a device will be provided with paper copies to take home.  NO HOME LEARNING IS TO BE BROUGHT IN TO SCHOOL.  Instead, any written work can be emailed to homelearning@ourladyoffatimatrust.essex.sch.uk with FAO Mrs Ingram Year 2 in the subject heading.  Please click on the correct term to the right of this page to find current Home Learning activities.

Water Bottles

Your child must bring in a water bottle each day.  Our water fountains are currently switched off, so water bottles from home are essential.  They will take these home each day

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.

P.E.

Our P.E lesson is on Thursday with Mrs Buck.  Please ensure your child arrives at school wearing their P.E. kit on this day.  They will not be changing in school.  Please ensure that children have an inside and outside kit as the weather is getting colder. 

Topic

Please click on our Term pages at the side to find out what we are currently learning about in class!  

Birthdays

Please be reminded that children are not to bring in party bags or sweets.  Instead we ask that a book is donated to our school/class library.
