Booster classes will start the first week in October. They start at the end of the school day and finish at 4.15 prompt. It would be great if you were at school by 4.10 to be ready to collect your child.
The booster classes are as follows:
Monday 3.15 to 4.15 Maths
Wednesday 3.15 to 4.15 Reading/book study.
Boosters are open to all children in the class.
SAT’s weeks for Y2 this year will be as follows:
7 th to 11th May English

It would be really helpful if you could plan any holidays around these dates as it is very important for your child to be in school on these dates.
Our topics this half term are Super Sculptures and Meet Me by the Steel Men. Watch this space for pictures.
Our trip to see the steel statues yesterday was amazing. The statues are huge! We took rubbings of the different textures and generated fantastic words to use in our work back at school. We had lots of comments from the general public saying how well behaved we all were. Well done to everyone in Y2.
Today we went wild! Running barefoot and free in the grass. It was squiggly, cold, soft, muddy, silky and it tickles. After Mrs James washed and dried our feet. It was great fun!
From Monday 9th October the children in Y2 with have a greater focus in maths lesson on the 2,5 and 10 times tables. We have an award system running in school where the children can earn bronze, sliver and gold for each of the times tables.
Bronze award means the children can say a times table without error or long pauses for example one times two is two, two times two…
silver award means the children can give the product of numbers multiplied together. For example ‘what are four fives?’ The questions are in random order.
for gold children will be able to give the multiplication facts when provided with the product only for example 24 = twelve twos/two twelves. also they will need to be able to answer questions like twenty-four divided by two.
there will be a test every half term when the stickers will be awarded to the children in class and added to their individual achievement card.
Thank you for supporting your child at home with this very important life skill. Y2 focus on 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Kind regards Mrs Godfrey.
