Welcome to Phoenix Class

Year 2

Phoenix Class


Term 5


Hope you all had a lovely holiday!


This term we are exploring WW1 - We will understand the causes for the War. Which countries were on which side, the impact it had on families and technology used.


PE this term is swimming and will be on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a swim suit/trunks/shorts and a towel in school on this day.


Could an outside weather appropriate coat be in school each day as the ethos of OPAL is that we are out at playtime in all weathers, and if your child wishes they can leave a pair of wellies at school for playtimes.


Homework - The expectations for homework in Year 2 are as follows.  We follow the schools homework policy which can be found on the website.  The children will be expected to complete both Doodle Maths and Doodle Spell during the week. Spellings will be via the Doodle Spell application and will be tested on a Friday.  Work from Doodle Maths will be tailored to your child and where they are within the Maths curriculum.  Reading is also expected as this will compliment the sounds being taught during our daily phonics sessions.


If you have any questions or queries then please either speak to me at the door, or email via the website.

Year 2 SATs will be undertaken the week beginning 20th May 2018. For KS1 the children will sit tests in Maths, Reading and Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar. In Year 2 the SATs are much more informal than those in Year 6. They are undertaken in small groups and there is no time pressure. SATs results inform the Teacher Assessment judgements made in July, but do not dictate them. We have attached a DfE leaflet for further information. If you have any questions please come in and see us.
