Year 2 Classes

Welcome to Year 2!

Dear Parents, Carers & Pupils,

Welcome to Year 2 at Raglan Primary School!

Books that need changing

In each classroom, there is a tray for books that need changing.  Children who have finished their book and need a new one must place their book in the tray a the beginning of the day.

Home Learning

Reading: Please read to an adult or silently for at least 15 minutes each day. Please discuss the texts that you read and ask your children questions about what they have read and their opinions of the text.

Spellings:  Spelling home learning will be sent home weekly and will be linked closely with phonics learned during the week.  Spelling is sent home on Friday and is due the following Wednesday.

Times tables:  Please practice times tables regularly.  Please start with 2’s, 5’s, 10’s and 3’s.

A termly home learning jigsaw will be sent home closely lined to the topics covered in class.  Children are to complete a piece each week and this will be due on Wednesday.

PE

Please ensure that PE kits are in school every day.  They must be labelled.  When the weather is cold, please could children have jogging bottoms in their PE kit in case we have PE outside.  We have PE twice a week.  One session is taken by specialist PE coaches.

Educational Visits

We are hoping to go on lots of exciting educational visits during the year and would greatly appreciate help to make sure these can take place.

Timekeeping

We have a ‘soft start’ in the morning.  This means that children can enter the school 10 minutes before the official start time.

Children must be at school each morning by 8.55 a.m. for KS1 children. Children are the responsibility of parents/carers before school and should not be in the playground unsupervised before this time.

Behaviour

Please refer to the Behaviour and Relationships policy on the website. We will be using dragons to support behaviour for learning.  Please ask your child about these!
