Welcome Year Two's class page.

In year two this year we have Mrs Campbell and Mrs Elsmore to support with learning. 

Topic

This spring term, our focus revolves around the theme "Heroic Heroes," delving into historical narratives that highlight the lives of two influential figures: Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. In our historical exploration, we aim to unravel the stories of these remarkable individuals. Simultaneously, in the realm of science, our attention will be dedicated to understanding and implementing principles that contribute to maintaining a healthy body.

Reading Books

Reading is a crucial element in fostering your child's educational growth. While we will maintain our daily Guided Reading sessions at school, your involvement at home is extremely valuable. Your child will be provided with a reading book and a reading record to take home. Additionally, all children will receive a phonics book, which will be updated on a weekly basis. This phonics book will align with your child's current phonics proficiency and should be a celebration of their independent reading achievements. We strongly encourage you to make nightly reading sessions a regular practice to help maintain your child's reading proficiency. Kindly remind your children to place their completed books in the designated "red box" so that we can replace them as frequently as possible.

PE

Our PE sessions are on a Tuesday and Thursday, but we aim to get outside and active as much as possible throughout the week. Therefore, please ensure your child has a fully labelled kit in school all week, should any changes in the timetable occur. Earrings must be removed on PE days. If your child has recently had their ears pierced, they should come to school with their ears taped on PE days.

Homework

Homework is now set in a homework book. Homework is due in on a Wednesday ready to be marked and handed back out on a Friday. We also set maths Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs) to practise and learn at home as well as at in school these will be uploaded to our class page each term.

Spellings

Children in Year Two have a weekly spelling test. The ten spellings will be sent home on a Friday and the test will be on the following Friday. It is not necessary to bring the completed sheet back into school, this is purely for your child to practise their spellings at home.

Getting in Touch

If you have any questions/concerns/worries, please do not hesitate to email admin@st-pauls-hyde.tameside.sch.uk

I am so excited for the year ahead with your wonderful children. Thank you in advance for your support.
