  • Wednesday - Spellings set and homework set 


In year 2 we don’t have a specific day for show and tell, however if the children receive something they are very proud of or have something that is linked to our learning they are very welcome to bring this into school and we will share as a class.

Things that help us learn

We will be continuing to use Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Key Stage 1. Reading books are sent home on a weekly basis which are pitched at your child’s current phonic ability and at a level they can decode and comprehend at a 95% accuracy. Weekly spellings are sent home to consolidate the phonetic sounds/SPaG rules the children have been learning that week.
