Welcome back Year 2!

 

Don't forget you can contact your class teacher at homework_y2@ryvers.slough.sch.uk 

If you have a question or would like to share one or two of your learning activities with us or just to say hello! Please include your name and class in the subject line.

 

 

Soft start

Please remember we do not line up in the mornings. Children get dropped off on the KS1 playground. Please make sure you come all the way round to the KS1 playground so that a member of staff can see your child/ren. Reminder: do not drop them off on the basketball court.

Once the children come in and wash their hands, they start an early morning activity.

Soft start is from 8:35am-8:50am

Registration starts at 8:50am

Reading

Reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday. Children will be given a new yellow reading diary. When you have read with your child at home, please sign this diary. Reading books are also available online at Collins Big Cat - please read with your child every day and ensure their reading planner is in school every day so that KS1 staff may check the planner. 

PE 

PE will be on Wednesday for all classes.  Children should come in to school wearing their PE kit please. All earrings to be removed on Wednesday for PE and long hair must be tied back.

Cracking Number Facts

Cracking Number Facts are tested on a Wednesday with a two-minute test.  Results are given to the children and if a level is passed a certificate will be sent home by the end of the same week.  Please note we do not send home completed sheets - see the note below for more information about Cracking Number Facts.

We do not expect the children to pass every week so please do not worry, just keep practising and encouraging your child to do their best.

Note: All children will start cracking number facts level from the beginning

Homework

Homework is set each Friday and is due back on the following Wednesday.  In line with school policy each activity should take the following amount of time:-

Reading 10-15 minutes daily

Spelling 10 minutes weekly (tested the following Thursday)

Maths 20 minutes weekly 

If your child is struggling to complete their homework in this time, please speak to your class teacher.  Over school holidays your child may be asked to complete a project linked to work which they have been doing in class.

 

Remember, your child should also spend some time everyday on:-

Numbots & TTRS

Collins Big Cat

Nessy (if you have a login) for 20 minutes

Activity Passports

 

Each year group has its own list of around twenty activities, which works out at about 7 per term. They can be done in any order. The majority of these activities will cost little or nothing to complete. When your child has completed an activity, then please let the class teacher know by showing a photograph, ticket or postcard etc. At the end of the year, we will award bronze, silver or gold certificates according to the number of activities each child has completed. 

Good luck Year 2! Who will win a gold certificate?! 

Phonics:

                                                                                  

At Ryvers Primary School, we now have a new phonics scheme called Little Wandle Letters and Sounds 

Please visit:

https://www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/resources/for-parents/

The resources on this page will help you support your child with saying their sounds and writing their letters. There are also some useful videos so you can see how they are taught at school and feel confident about supporting their reading at home.
