Autumn term in Year 2
Welcome to Year 2!
We hope you had a lovely summer holiday and that you are excited about all of the great activities we will be doing in our new year group!
We are still in KS1 but upstairs in Year 2 we are going to learn lots of new and exciting things.
Do you know anything about Yaks, Pandas or Lorises? They are animals from Asia. Asia is a continent that we will still be looking at in KS1!
Don't forget you can contact your class teacher at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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
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
