CLASS 2

 

In class 2 the children will build on experiences and skills from class 1. The day is more structured, and the children are expected to start to develop their independence. There is more emphasis on recording work and becoming independent writers. By the Spring term the children are expected to be organised and come into class 2 on their own. Of course, parents and carers are always welcome to come and see us with any questions or even for just a chat.

 

Reading

In year 1 and 2 the children continue to follow the letters and sounds program where they learn new phonemes and word patterns to help them learn to read. The children will take home a reading book matched to their ability and one to share. We would be grateful if you would hear your child read every day and sign their reading diary. We appreciate your support in hearing your child read - it really does make a difference!

The children are heard read every day when possible. They are also responsible for taking their reading book home every day, although we will remind them!
