Mrs Harry's Class 2023 - 2024
This is our Year 2 class page.
Autumn term 2
Welcome back to a busy half term. We will be going to the airport on our trip as well as beginning the reherasals for our Christmas Nativity.
Below is our learning journey for this week.
The school day will now begin at 8.45am and finish at 3.15pm. Please try to be punctual as this will help to ease congestion on the path outside the gates.
PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon during this part of the term. Please ensure that during this term the children come to school in their PE kit on these days. I would suggest they wear their winter PE kit of tracksuit bottoms and black sweatshirt with their PE t-shirt underneath as these sessions will be outside as much as possible.
As always can we please remind parents that if you wish to provide a break time snack for your child it should be something healthy such as fruit. There is always fruit available if your child forgets their snack. The children can bring in their own water bottle daily which must only have water (not juice) in.
Reading and Phonics:
Phonics is taught everyday in small groups.
The children are assessed regularly to ensure they are in the correct phonics grouping and that their reading level is in line with their phonics development. It would be lovely for you to spend time reading to your child and having discussions about the book you have read.
As the children are now progressing through the book levels some of them will be added to the Accelerated Reader scheme. This should be up and running now for those children who are using it and the children have their reading levels inside the back page of their reading diaries. Alongside this these children will be in a guided reading group where they will be learning key comprehension skills.
Please read with your child daily as this will have an impact on all areas of their learning. Please ensure you record their reading in their planner. You may wish to write a comment but please do not feel that you have to.
If you wish to send me a message then please feel free to write in your child's planner but please ask them to pass it to me as I do not always check the planners daily.
