2MB and 2SM

Welcome to Year 2

Our Typical Year 2 Timetable

Key Information

  • Library day is Wednesday.
  • Children to come to school in PE kit on Tuesdays.

 

Communicating with your child's class teacher: 

Our direct year group email is year2@st-matthews.leeds.sch.uk. As both classes use this email, please make it clear in the subject line who the email is for (FAO Miss McBeth, Mrs Maini, Mrs Burgener). 

 

Collecting your child at the end of the day:

We have now learned most parents'/carers' faces which is great for a speedy home time dismissal. If your child is being collected by another person, please ensure that your child's class teacher is aware of this in advance. The best way to do this is by contacting the school office. Due to safeguarding reasons, we cannot release a child to a person without prior instruction from the parent/carer. 

 

Names in clothing:

Please ensure that your child's clothing is clearly labelled with their name so their clothing can be rightfully returned (should it be taken off). 

Homework

Spellings are given out on a Friday to be learnt by the following Friday.

My Maths tasks are set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday.

Reading: Your child can choose their own reading book from a phonics book box or a colour band box that we deem appropriate. These books can be changed on any day and we encourage you to read three times a week with your child and sign their reading record.  

Google Classrooms will be used to set spelling lists for the week and occasionally throughout the year there may be other requests or tasks set. Note: We sometimes set tasks on Google Classroom for the children to complete in their computing lesson. This does not have to be done at home. 

 

Optional extra:

Numbots can be accessed anytime. We don't set weekly tasks on it, but it can be a useful tool for extra number practice at home. 

Times Table Rock Stars can be accessed from January onwards. This is when we will learn about multiplication.
