Welcome to Year 2 at St Gregory's
Year 2 staff: Mrs Lamb, Mrs Goodwin, Miss. Tatton, Sister Geraldine and Miss Barker
During this term, we will encourage our children to become more independent in all aspects of the school day, especially finding ways to improve their work, independently.
There will now be more emphasis on:
- knowing the following times tables - x10, x2, x5, x3. Your child should know these fluently in order to start with and then randomly.Your child will be tested on these on a weekly basis.
- comprehension - through the use of our accelerated reader program, your child will be 'quizzed' on the books they read. Your child should aim to achieve no less than 80% on these quizzes. Quizzes are advised to be taken, once your child has read their book twice or show they fully understand the text.
- beginning to use cursive print in all pieces of writing. If you are unsure of this, both class teachers will happily explain the best ways of supporting your child with this.
Revised PSHE Curriculum:
- Seeking help and advice from others, respecting others; Link to New Year’s resolution.
