Why was London burning?
Visit to Mossley Fire Station
To start out new topic we visited Mossley Fire Station. We had a great time look at all the equipment, having a tour of the fire station and we even challenged the fire staff to see how quickly they could get dressed into their protective clothing!
Expectations for reading at home
Reading at home is very important in helping your child to learn new vocabulary and improve their 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 four 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. Once they have completed a chart they will earn a raffle ticket. At the end of each term they will be entered into a raffle to win a book hamper.
Reading books and records should be in school daily and will be changed on a Monday and Thursday.
We now have access to Rising Stars online. All children have come home with their log in details. Once they log in they will find their books assigned to them. There are a lot of books! The aim is not to read them as quickly as possible but to support comprehension at home. An expected reader is someone who is fluent and has a good understanding of what they have read.
Every Tuesday the children will bring home their homework. It needs to be returned the following Monday.
They will receive spellings and a reading book. Each week we will alternate between a Maths and an English task.
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.
In year two we will begin to learn our timestables.
Every child has been given a login to Times Tables Rockstars. To log in click on the link below. To access the website make sure you type the school name in as it is below otherwise it won't find St George's.
