Welcome to Year 2
Year 2 has two classes - 2S and 2P. Mrs. Stevenson and Miss Greene teach 2S and they are supported by Mrs Hill and Mrs Harris (TAs). 2P is taught by Mrs Perkins and is supported by Mrs. Pantall(TA). .
Reading is one of the most important things your child will learn to do. They need it to access every lesson and the world around them including iPads and Xboxes! Therefore a great emphasis is placed on this skill and we expect all children to read 4 times a week at home. Please hear them read and talk to your child about what they have read as this helps your child gain in confidence and helps them to express their understanding of what they have read. Writing a short comment in their diary helps us to see how they have got on. We are very lucky to have two volunteer readers coming in to support your children on a weekly basis.
P.E. is taught twice weekly. Your child will need a named P.E. kit, including pumps/trainers in school at all times. Please check your child's pumps/trainers regularly to ensure they fit. Children should ideally not wear earrings on PE days, if they have to do so, please provide tape to cover them.

Year 2 Home Learning
Thank you so much for all your efforts this year, especially during the lock-down. We are looking forward to welcoming the children back into Year 3 in September.
While of course the children are in need of some free time for rest and relaxation, we all know that for children the learning never stops. To help make the most of this over the Summer, follow these tips:
- Keep reading. Read as much as possible. Talk about what you read, whether it's snippets of information, discussing characters, settings or plot. The more you are able to talk about your reading, the deeper your understanding. Hereford library is now open again for free access to books.
- Play games that involve maths: TT Rockstars, battleships, darts etc. Also get involved as much as possible with real life maths such as calculating cost or change, working out how many minutes until the bus comes or estimating how many cars will fit on the ferry.
- Encourage creative writing and drawing - as part of play; writing postcards, emails or letters; writing a recipe or the instructions for a game; story writing and poetry. Make sure your child has access to pens, pencils and notebooks/paper. There are some great drawing tutorials on the web if you are looking for more structure.
- Take any opportunity to find out more about the world together - watch the news or a documentary; go to a museum; visit a castle or cathedral; watch an artist at work; even a spot of people-watching together.
Most of all - have fun, relax, and enjoy your holiday.
