Chestnut - Year 2

Welcome to Chestnut Class


Chestnut class are fully immersed in life in year 2, enjoying the challenges it brings and developing resilience.


A few reminders about the routines and requirements for year 2:


  • Reading books and reading records must be in school every day. They will be changed at least once a week and your child’s class teacher will also be monitoring their reading records.
  • P.E kit should be kept in school during term time. Children will have one indoor and one outdoor session of P.E per week (weather permitting!)
  • Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be handed in the following Wednesday.
  • Common exception word spelling lists will be sent home termly for your child to practise. Both year 1 and year 2 common exception words will be tested to ensure that the children are able to spell words they will commonly need in their writing. 


Please continue to encourage your children to be independent when coming to school. It is so wonderful to see how so many of them have matured over the year, but we need to prepare them for Key Stage 2 by letting them line up independently in the morning. Remembering to hand in homework will be their responsibility, as will remembering to bring the required equipment to school every day.


This term our topic is Africa. We will be looking at the geography of this wonderful continent, as well as exploring it's influences in art. 


In Science we are starting by looking at living things and their habitats. If your child has a favourite animal, they might like to do some research into their habitats in the wild. We would love to see any home learning your child has chosen to do! 


Spelling practise is an important part of your child’s education. Following on from their phonics teaching in year 1, we are now teaching spelling daily to work on improving their accuracy and develop their vocabulary. We will send home termly lists of common exception words that have been divided into what they need to know per year of their schooling.  The highlighted words are the words they need to learn, so encouraging your child to practise these words at home will be hugely beneficial to them.


We hope that all children continue to enjoy their experience in year 2 and have a happy 2018.
