What a super class the year 2 children are!
In the first half term, the children have established excellent learning habits. Many children are reading every day at home and in school. We practise spellings most mornings and have a spelling test of words practised at home every Thursday. Most children complete their homework every week and nearly all parents attended the October parents evening.
Thank you children, parents, carers and families.
Using Websites and online resources to help you child learn
Thythorn pays the subscription for pupils and parents to access useful learning sites at home.
We hope that you find them useful; please give us feedback about other resources we could provide.
Year 2 is the final year in Key Stage 1 - the last year of 'infants' before moving to 'juniors' in Key Stage 2. In May each year, children are assessed using SATs tests and teacher assessment to check that they are making the expected progress for their age. The expectations are high, but we provide lots of support and different activities to help pupils become confident learners.
Between the ages of 6 and 7, children grow rapidly in many ways. Keep a check on your child's eyesight, hearing and teeth; it's the stage when some children need grommets, glasses or regular visits from the tooth fairy!
It's also the age when many children start to become a lot more independent and socially aware; they learn how to put their own viewpoint across, but need practise in listening properly to others! In year 2, we have to do a lot of discussion about understanding another person's point of view, being fair and kind and following our agreed class rules.
We are an inclusive school; all children are expected to be friendly, to work and play with everyone, and to talk through any difficulties so that they are quickly resolved.
