Welcome to Year 2 Flamingo Class
Our team is:
Class teacher: Ms Coates and Support Assistant: Jadine Cole
Half Term Overview
Please see the link below to a more detailed overview as to what your child can expect to be getting up to this half term. Our learning will be based around Robots using the story of The Robot and the Bluebird to help support our learning.
Our PE days are Monday (outdoor) and Wednesday (indoor). Please make sure your child has a named PE kit with trainers or Plimsolls. Remember, laces are hard to tie if you haven't learnt how to! As we head into the colder months children should be wearing long joggers for outdoor P.E.
Please see below for an example class timetable of the school day.
As a school we are now using The Little Wandle Phonics Programme to support with reading and writing.
Home reading books will be changed or checked twice a week. The changing days are indicated on your child's reading folder. Please make sure you are reading with your child every day for at least 15 minutes. They will have read the book in class to build their comprehension and prosody which they can then build on at home. We are also providing sharing books for your child to help grow their vocabulary and to expose them to a range of sentence structures whilst encouraging a love of reading! For guidelines on the correct pronunciation of sounds to support your child's reading please see this link.
Spellings will be handed out every Wednesday for a quiz the following Wednesday. Spelling will be based on phase 5 phonics and as we progress through the year we will look at different spelling rules. Please see the link below for this week's spellings.
