Skylarks Year 2 2021 - 2022
Autumn Term One 2021
Welcome to Skylarks' class page. I hope you have had a lovely summer break and are ready and raring to start Year 2. Here you will find information relating to our learning throughout the year. To keep up to date with what is happening in our class please check our school Twitter feed and see any blog posts at the bottom of this page.
In our team we have Miss Knight and Mrs Henderson. Mrs Henderson is our wonderful teaching assistant who supports our learning throughout the week. She also teaches Music, RE and French on Friday mornings.
Our PE lessons take place on Monday and Thursday afternoons. Please ensure that your child brings in the correct kit and trainers each Monday ready for the week ahead. During the Autumn term, it is advisable that children bring warm tracksuit joggers, a zip-up hoodie or jumper, a hat and gloves for when we venture outside. Please make sure that all clothing is clearly labelled so that any lost items can be returned. PE kits will be sent home each Thursday to be washed before the next session. Please also provide a water bottle and waterproof coat for your child each day.
Phonics and Maths homework will be set on a Friday and both are due in the following Wednesday morning. These will be set electronically and should be completed on the assigned online learning platform. Thank you for supporting your child to complete their homework on time.
Daily reading is essential in supporting your child's developing fluency, comprehension and love of literature. I would like to encourage you to hear your child read for 5-10 minutes each day, little and often will really help to support your child in improving their confidence and understanding when reading aloud.
Finally, daily phonics sessions will continue throughout Year 2 and we will be beginning by recapping Phase 5. Phase 5 aims for children to broaden their knowledge of graphemes and phonemes for use in reading and spelling. We will be revisiting taught graphemes from Year 1 and alternative
pronunciations for these whilst exploring alternate graphemes to support children's developing understanding of spelling. See below the Phase 5 sounds we are continuing to practise and the Year 2 common exception words that we will be learning.
Here's to a fantastic term of learning at Cuddington Primary School.
