Year 2 - Matilda Class
Year 2 – Matilda Class Information
Welcome to Year Two. Year Two is an exciting year as the children develop their independence further and learn a range of new skills to help them along the way to becoming a successful independent learner. We relish the opportunity to witness the children develop and progress so much. We have already seen the children’s attitude to learning improve and look forward to the year working with them and you to build on their understanding of the world around them and develop it further!

Routines & Notices
P.E. will happen throughout the week. Please bring in on a Monday and take home on a Friday.
Reading & Times Tables
Reading is a vital skill which, when embedded, can enrich writing and understanding. For this reason, it is imperative that we foster a love for reading. You can support at home by reading daily with your child and commenting in their reading records.
Times tables knowledge is invaluable and feeds in to many areas of the maths curriculum. Your child needs to recall and understand multiplication and corresponding division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
Homework will be set on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday. There is the expectation that your child reads at home daily and practices their times tables regularly.
Registration & Dismissal
It is expected that all children arrive between 8:40am – 8:50am and that they line up with their class when the bell goes at 8:50am.
Your child’s class will be dismissed at 3:15. Please allow plenty of space around the door and teacher when collecting your child. If your child is being collected by another family member or friend please write a letter to your child’s teacher.
If you have a question or concern about your child please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher.
