Welcome to Puffin Class

Our class teacher is Miss Foster and our teaching assistant is Miss Mahmood.

Expectations for Reading at home

Reading at home is very important in helping you to learn new vocabulary and improve your spelling. Reading lets us explore new worlds and opens up our imagination.

It is our expectation that children will read their reading books at least three times each week and each time it will be signed by the grown up they have read with. In year two, each time the children have read they will earn a sticker on their chart.

Reading books and records should be in school daily and shown to Miss Foster every Monday.

Spelling

Each week ten spellings will be sent home for the children to learn and practise. These will be a mixture of the spelling pattern we are currently learning and the year two common exception words. Below is a list of all the common exception words we will be learning throughout the year. Children also need to read and write all of the numbers up to one hundred confidently.

Timestables

In year two we will begin to learn our timestables. We will start with the two times table. Below are links to games and songs that will help your child to learn them.
