Welcome to Year 2 at St Gregory's

NEW INFORMATION (26.3.20) 

We hope that your child is able to access all of the resources and activities provided in your 2 week pack. More resources will be added to this website for use during and after the Easter holidays. Please take care we are missing the children and hope to them really soon. Mrs. Lamb and Mrs. Goodwin.

 

Year 2 staff:       Mrs Lamb and Sister Geraldine            Mrs. Goodwin and Miss. Tatton

 

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.

This is something that children can focus on during time at home over the coming weeks:

  • Knowing the following times tables - x10, x2, x5, x3. Your child should be able to say these in order and move on to answering random times tables questions. Now that your child is able to access Times Tables Rockstars, he/she will be able to brush up on their skills (online). 
  • Comprehension - through the use of our accelerated reader program, your child can continue to quiz. 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 is able to show they they fully understand the text. 
  • Beginning to use cursive print in all pieces of writing. Every child should be using clear tall and small letters. 

 

Revised PSHE Curriculum: These are based on the 10 principle of PSHE

  • Seeking help and advice from others, respecting others
  • Showing love and care within the parish family and local community

  • Meditation

  • Safe access and use of medication

  • I understand how our behaviour can have an impact on others
