YEAR 2 - PARENT INFORMATION
Our regular PE days are Monday and Wednesday. However we would ask that your child has their PE kit in at all times.
Homework and spellings will be given every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
The children’s communication books are an important way for parents and teachers to communicate. Please feel free to write any questions, concerns or information in there and I will respond to you as quickly as possible. Additionally communication books are used to tell us if your child needs a new reading book. These books are checked daily so your child should always have an up to date reading book.
Please don't hesitate in contacting me via my school email address if you have any further queries.
Ways you can help support your child’s learning
- Reading with your child every night and discussing the story and the characters.
- Select texts from our Year 2 recommended book list to read with your child.
- Having the first 100 High Frequency Words and the next 200 available when your child is writing at home.
At Brill School, English, Maths and Core Skills are taught through focused daily lessons; usually in the morning. For other lessons we have in recent year moved away from narrow subject based teaching and have developed a curriculum that is imaginative, child focused and cross curricular.
Year 2’s thematic topic units for this year are:
