Classroom Organisation For Maths, group reading and some writing sessions children will be grouped according to ability or need (initially on end of Y1 data). Children will work in mixed ability groups during other learning sessions. Children are encouraged to be independent in their learning and to use support materials available in the classroom.

Handwriting Children will continue to learn the skills of cursive joined script. When they have established an fluent, joined and legible style they will be given a pen licence and pen to write with. Children should be aiming for their best presentation in all of their work.
Reading Children are heard during group reading sessions weekly. In addition they may be heard read individually by an adult in school. Please support us by hearing your child read at home! We have a class award system for children reading at home.
Maths Children will work through the National Curriculum objectives for Year 2. It would really help if you could encourage the children to learn their times tables at home. We will be introducing tables tests before October half term.
Useful information! Our PE sessions will be on Mondays and Fridays – please make sure your child has their PE kit in school at all times.
Useful information! Home learning tasks will be set on a Friday for completion by the following Wednesday (starting this week) and will alternate between Maths and English. The children will be set one piece of optional ‘topic’ related learning for each term (i.e. 6 over the year).
