Welcome to Year 2

In year 2 we continue to develop the children’s self-organisation skills by encouraging them to be responsible for their own jumpers, cardigans, coats and other belongings.

St. Wilfrid’s is a healthy school so we encourage the children to bring in a healthy snack for morning playtime. Suggestions include: breadsticks, cheese, fruit, plain rice cakes and plain crackers. They will also need a water bottle with a sports top (to avoid spills). The bottle must only be filled with fresh water.

Homework is as follows:

  • Reading: we would really like your child to read three times a week and for this to be recorded in your child’s planner. 
  • Spellings reflect your child’s learning in Phonics. They are sent home on Tuesdays to be returned for a spelling test on Monday.
  • Maths and English homework is sent home on alternate Tuesdays and it reinforces what we are learning in class.
  • Number Bonds- every week the children are tested on their ability to recall a number story (i.e. the story of 5- all the pairs of numbers which make 5) They achieve Bronze, Silver and Gold stickers for each story. After Christmas, most children begin learning their times tables in a similar way.
