St. James' CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 2

Our Year 2 classes this year are 2 France and 2 Spain. On this year group page you will find information about the topics we are learning about  as well as any other general information, such as a list of the term's spellings which are posted for download at the bottom of this page.

Homework
Homework will be given out every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday to received dojo points for Grit. The children will bring home spellings and a math sheet related to the topic within school. There will be 10 compulsory spellings and 10 challenge spellings. They will follow a spelling rule, pattern, phonic sounds or include high frequency words. We would encourage as many pupils as possible to complete the full twenty as it will broaden their vocabulary and help their spelling within their writing. The spelling test will be the following week. 

Reading
Children should read every day for at least 10-15 minutes. By doing this children will gain confidence and develop their skills in  fluency, phonological knowledge and comprehension of texts. This will help the children move up the coloured book bands and will receive a small prize for doing so.

General Information
In Year 2 children are required to know the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables well. Hit the Button is a great resource to help children with their times tables. Access it here: Hit the Button
