Welcome to Class 6 (Year 2)
A very warm welcome to class 6! I am looking forward to working with your child in the forthcoming year. As you will appreciate children are able to progress further with continued support from those around them at home and this we encourage greatly at Greenland Primary School.
Homework – Year 2 will receive Literacy homework and numeracy homework each week. This will be given to your child on a Monday and will be expected to be returned by Friday.
Reading – Your child will be provided with a reading book and a reading record to allow you to make any notes you think necessary at home. In Year 2, we encourage children to begin to take responsibility for their learning and so your child will be given time to change their reading book during the day, should they need to do so. Most children will be reading books that are banded in a colour system. Whilst we realise that many children are able to read books at a given level easily, they are not always able to answer questions on a text and so we encourage regular discussion after reading, in which your child will tell you about what they have read. We encourage reading on a daily basis and reading for only a short amount of time each day can help your child progress.
Library – children will be able to choose their own library book from the school library each week. This is a book that they can share with adults at home and does not reflect the current reading level of your child. Please encourage your child to return their library book every Wednesday.
PE will take place on Monday afternoons. We encourage your child to bring a PE kit for these days. PE kit consists of a white t-shirt and plain shorts (black/green). Suitable footwear is required for outdoor activities. PE kits can be purchased from school, however, local supermarkets also offer extremely good value for money. PE kits can be stored in school and sent home at end of each half term should you wish.
If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me at school. I look forward to working with you and thank you for your support.
