Homework.

Hello Parents and Carers of Ladybird class,

We have had a lovely week in Ladybirds this week. The children have all written some fantastic stories and learnt all about growing and changing in Science. Thank you for all of the baby pictures, they are making a very lovely display in class.

Tonight your child will come home with a homework folder, it will contain spellings and Maths every week. The maths is based on work we have been doing in class and the spellings are linked to the spelling rule that we have covered in class. Homework will be sent home every Friday and be due back the following Thursday.

As a school we are starting a new reading programme and have also launched “Reading Rockets’ as a new incentive to encourage our children to read at home. I have enclosed a letter in your child’s homework folder to explain this. In line with this, there will be no reading books sent home tonight, they will be issued on Monday and be due back on Friday (in line with COVID restrictions). I am sorry for any inconvenience caused. Please still read any books you have at home with your child over the weekend, it is important that they get the opportunity to look at a range of literature.

Thank you for your on-going support and cooperation with the restrictions and helping us to all keep safe at school.

Have a lovely weekend – please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns or queries.

See you next week!

Miss Shadbolt 🙂

Last day!

Thank you so much for all of your hard work over the last weeks and months at home and also for all your hard work we had at school from September to March! It hasn’t been the end to the term/year that I wished for but I am glad you are all safe at home. I have missed you all so much! As you know I won’t be in school in September but I will be in contact with Miss Taylor and the rest of school and I can’t wait to hear all about your time in Year 3 and what you’ve been up to. I look forward to seeing you all next year when I return from maternity leave. Take care, stay safe and have a happy and fun summer break.

Dear Parent/Carer,

As we sent out written reports to you at Easter, and the majority of the children have not been in school since, we will not be sending out written reports at the end of the year.

Instead we would like to offer you a ten minute phone call with your child’s teacher. You will be given either a morning or afternoon slot for your call. Please see schedule below.

If you do not wish to receive a phone call please let the school know as soon as possible and we will take you off the list.  The teacher will call the mobile telephone number registered to the first contact on your child’s file. If you would prefer us to call a different person or number please let us know as soon as possible.

Mrs Owen – Monday 13th July

If your child’s surname begins with A-K you will receive a morning call.

If your child’s surname begins with L – W you will receive an afternoon call.

Thanks

Guy Verling

End of Year Maths Expectations

Year 2 Maths Expectations

Mathematics-Non-Negotiables-Year-2

Attached above are the end of year Maths Expectations for Year 2. They are the minimum expectations that all pupils must attain by the end of Year 2, in order to be ‘At the expected standard’ in Maths.

The content identifies basics to ensure children make rapid progress and access learning in other areas, as well as securing success in terms of preparing children for the next stages in their learning.

I have attached this document for your information as a lot of learning has taken place at home over recent months so you can use this document to track and assess where your child is at and any gaps that they may have. It is purely so you can see what your child is expected to achieve in maths by the end of the academic year and gives examples of how they could do this. It also helps to prepare them for their new year group in September.

Your child’s new teacher in September will be sharing the appropriate document for their new year group with you at our Autumn term parents evening. Alongside our termly NTS assessments, teachers will also be using these documents to assess and track children’s progress throughout the year.

Written with age appropriate expectations in mind, they:

  • focus on the basics; making a difference to progress for all children
  • support teachers in recognising key areas to promote progress
  • are based on the average pupil in the cohort, supporting the need for differentiation.

These expectations are in no way intended to cover the entirety of the curriculum – they are an on-going reminder of key objectives for the year group. They are the basics in order to embed and support meaningful learning.

Thank you! Mrs Owen
