Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 class page for Tamarin class (Mr McSmythurs & Mrs Wiltshire ), Tiger class (Miss Payne) and Toucan class (Ms Anness & Mrs Thomas),
Please check out all the wonderful work posted on the blog. All photos of children working and trips will be published on each class blog page. Please visit and comment.
This term we will be reading the story of The Snail and the Whale and using non-fiction books to research whales.  Please encourage your child to find out one or two interesting facts at home.  In maths we will be working on reading and writing numbers up to 100, basic number facts and counting in twos and tens.
Reading - all children are expected to read at home at least three times per week. It is essential that you continue reading with your child to not only check their reading accuracy, but also that they have fully understood the story through discussion.
Spelling - there will be a weekly test every Friday. A full downloadable list of the 'common exception words' for children to learn is available below. 
Times Tables - Children are expected to know the 2, 5 and 10 times tables in full by the end of year 2, as well as starting to learn the 3 times tables. Using TTRockstars will support children to regularly practise their skills.  They will be set weekly challenges to complete on the app as well as using the Garage section (Please note that the Studio section of the website tests all times tables unto 12x12 therefore not suitable for Year 2s).
TTRockstars and Numbots (NEW) are available to play using a smart phone / tablet apps or website.  Both apps use the same username and password that is printed at the front of each child's reading record.  Any questions or difficulties, do ask the Year 2 team in the first instance.
