Year 2 2019 - 2020

Mr Carew

Welcome to Year 2

Spring 2020

Homework– Unless you are notified via a small note from myself, homework will be set on a Thursday to be returned by Tuesday.  The children should be encouraged to   produce their best work , using a  pencil whenever possible. Please sign their homework before it is returned to school. Homework will alternate between maths, a writing activity and a comprehension activity.


Spelling— Spellings will be given out on a Thursday and they will usually be tested the following Tuesday. Please make a note of any words they got wrong or spelling patterns they find difficult and aim to do a little bit of extra practise at home.

Reading: The children can change their book on any  day of the week. On top of this , they will be given a specific book that they will return on a set day each week. It is very important that the children read regularly and often. A good guide   would be 5 times a week for approximately  10 to 15 minutes. Please sign their home-school diary when you listen to your child read or when they have a completed a book.


P.E  The children should have their P.E kit in school all week as the day we go outside for P.E will often vary dependent on the weather, although we will aim to go out on a Monday this term. Please could the children have a pair of pumps for indoor P.E and a pair of out door trainers.

Water bottles–  The children are encouraged to bring a water bottle each day. Please only fill the bottle with  water. Children will be asked to put drinks other than water back in their school bag to drink with their lunch as they have access to the water fountain during the day.

Help with Readers: Are  you able to give a little bit of time to  come into school and listen to individual readers? Even if  it was just for an hour a  fortnight , your help would be much appreciated. If you can, please let me know.

Dates for your diary:

Maths Curriculum Evening - Monday 13th January (6:00pm)

Year 2 Class Assembly  - Friday 7th February (9:30am)

Parent Evenings- Wednesday 18th and 19th March


If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.
