Welcome to Year 2
Home Learning Due - Wednesday 17th July
With only 4 weeks until Year 2 perform their end of year production 'Dragon days' we would really like the children to use their time at home to learn their lines. Some children will be coming home today with the lines they will be delivering on stage. We ask that the children discuss these lines with you and think about the best way to deliver them. Please encourage children to use a clear, loud (not too loud!) voice which will be heard throughout the hall. Children should think about the expression that they can add to their line to make it interesting.
Those children who have not brought lines home could please practise the words for the songs.
Thank you for your support

Year 2 writing expectations
Here are some of the things the children should include in their writing;
full stops, capital letters and use question marks when required
Use past tense mostly correctly and consistently
Use conjunctions (and/or/ but/ when/ if/ that/ because)
segment spoken words into phonemes and represent these by graphemes, spelling many of these words correctly and making phonically-plausible attempts at others
spell many core words correctly
Children doing more than is expected should;
write effectively and coherently, drawing on their reading to inform the vocabulary and grammar of their writing
make simple additions, revisions and proof-reading corrections to their own writing
use the punctuation taught at key stage 1 mostly correctly ( ! , ’ ? )
spell most core words
add suffixes to spell most words correctly in their writing (e.g. –ment, –ness, –ful, –less, –ly)
Thank you for your support.

A new topic has been loaded to Maths with Parents. You will now find 'Division by sharing' activities and games for the children to complete. Please remember that these do not have to be recorded or handed in to school.
