Multi Faith week in Year 2
Our selected religion to study in Year 2 is Islam. Over the week we have been busy learning about the Islamic faith and traditions.
On Wednesday 28th February we had a visit from a Muslim man who came into school to tell us all about Islam. We explained the Quran and Arabic writing to us. We had the opportunity to try on some traditional Muslim clothes too.
Our school day starts at 9:00am. In order to gain further independence we encourage children to come into class on their own and remember to hand in any planners, homework books, notes or snack money. Snack money is 50p for the week. This will provide the children with a piece of toast for Mon-Fri. Our morning break is at 10.15am, lunch time is 11.45 and afternoon break is 2.00pm.
We have daily English and Maths sessions, including guided reading and phonics. We implement a creative curriculum through the DREAM Curriculum as well as Computing, PE twice a week and music.
PE will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We cannot stress enough the importance of having your child’s name clearly marked on the PE kit, PE bag and the rest of their uniform. Your child’s PE kit should consist of a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps. Earrings are not to be worn.
Homework will be sent out every Friday. This will consist of a piece of English or Maths and spellings. Homework must be returned to school by the following Wednesday and spelling tests will take place each Friday.
We expect the children to read their reading book at least three times a week. All children who do, will win the weekly Reading Challenge. This means they will receive a sticker in their planner. Once they gain 4 stickers they will be allowed to choose a prize from the class prize tin.
Reading books will be changed on a regular basis. It is essential that you record in the planners each time your child reads to you. We will not change the books unless they have been read at home and you have recorded it in the planner.
Once again we will be using Bug Club this year to support and enhance the children’s reading experiences. The details of this will be sent out to you very shortly. All that we ask is that if you read a book, with your child on Bug Club, please record it in their planners.
Regular communication will be made through the online behaviour management system ‘Class Dojo’. Teachers will post messages, reminders and current updates on life in Year 2S. It is important to sign up as soon as possible to receive regular updates.
Any questions, queries or concerns please feel free to either speak to Miss Stokes after school or make an appointment for a convenient time if not possible.
