Independence


• As your child is now in year 2, we are promoting independence in as many ways as possible…
• All children are encouraged to come into the classroom by themselves (unless you need to speak to an adult at the door)
• Of course we will support where necessary, however on the whole, the children will be encouraged to look after their own belongings.
We will be working on being resilient learners and not giving up when things get tricky   

Homework

• Your child will make lots of progress in year 2, to support this, please encourage  them to complete their homework.
• Each week your child will be given:
• Spellings
• Maths challenges
• Optional writing challenges

Please read with your child as much as possible at home and write a comment in their yellow reading record.

Spellings


Every Monday your child will be tested on their spellings and given new ones for the next week.
Please work with your child to practise these spellings.
If you want new ways of practising these spellings let me know! 

Behaviour


• As a class, we have written our own class rules.
• Should your child follow these rules, they will get lots of stars on their star chart!
• When your child gets 10 stars, they get a bigger star in their ‘bucket’.
• There is a bucket for each house in school and your child knows which house they are in! 

If you ever have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to speak to us at the door in the morning or organise a meeting after school 
Thanks, in advance for your support.
