Year 2 – ‘Potter’ and ‘Browne’

Homework

Children will receive weekly homework in Year 2. This may consist of a piece of GPS (grammar, punctuation & spelling), an English or a maths activity.

Homework will be set using Google Classroom. Your child will have been given a log for this. Google classroom can be accessed via the Virtual School link at the top of this page.

Children should be reading five times a week at home. Where possible encourage your child to read daily, even if it is just 5 minutes squeezed in. It doesn’t have to be their book from school, it could be a magazine, comic, annual or anything else they enjoy.  Children have reading diaries where you can comment on your child’s reading at home and they can keep track of the books they have read. There is also a useful section on common words to read and spell. Reading books will be changed on Tuesdays.

Swimming & PE

Browne’s PE sessions will take place every Tuesday and Wednesday. Potter’s PE sessions will take place every Thursday and Friday.  Children must come to school dressed in their PE kits and will continue to wear them for the rest of the day. PE kit is a white t shirt, blue or navy shorts and suitable footwear (trainers or pumps).

Water bottles

Due to current COVID restrictions, children are not allowed to have water bottles in class.  Named cups will be provided for drinking water, and these will remain in school. It is important for children to keep hydrated throughout the day.

House Points 

Children will be awarded house points for outstanding effort, kindness, helpfulness and anything else that staff feel they have worked hard on or gone above and beyond for. These will be collected on ClassDojo.
