General Class Information 

Don't forget, our trip to Treetop Trek is on Monday 24th April. A letter with further information will be sent home on our return to school on Monday 17th April.


During this half term , your child will be completing their end of KS1 assessments within the month of May. Please ensure that your child attends school every day within this assessment period and contact me as soon as possible should you be aware that your child may be absent during that time.

In May, most children in year 2 will have taken the new national curriculum tests (also known as SATS) in reading and
mathematics as well as grammar, spelling and punctuation. Teachers will mark the tests and then the results will be converted to a scaled score. A score of 100 or more means that a child is working at or above the expected standard. If they scored below 100 this means they need more support. The scaled scores are published to schools at the beginning of July.

The results will be used by teachers to help them judge how well children are progressing. They form one part of the information that the teacher will take into consideration before giving a final assessment grade for your child in our end of year reports. 

As part of our preparation for the end of year assessments, your child has already begun their 'Special Agent Training' and have been given some Secret Missions via Seesaw last half term to complete, these are a great way to share with your child the kind of questions that children will be asked to complete and more will be set this half term Want to do some extra practice? Visit our class Youtube channel and see which challenges you want to try:


Weekly Timetable 

Here are important things to remember each week: (Any changes to our weekly timetable will always be shared with parents via our text message system)

Here is our weekly timetable, we also do Phonics at the beginning of every English lesson and mental maths sessions straight after lunch for 15 minutes:


This year these are the staff that will be working with your children either in class, or extra sessions in intervention groups:








 Homework will be sent home on a Friday to be handed in by the following week.  Homework will alternate between learning logs and English/maths homework. English and maths will focus on the week's learning and learning logs will have a focus around our topics or any special events which may be happening within our community or nationally.


We will still be sending home the traditional learning log books but we will also be replicating this homework on the Seesaw app. It is a choice whether you wish to complete the homework in the book or online. Every child has been given a QR code and can be accessed through the Seesaw CLASS app. This homework will be in addition to spellings. We may also send home some extra phonics work from time to time and later in the year we will begin to send home times tables to learn.


New spellings will be sent home on a Monday ready for our spelling test on a Friday. Our spelling words will link with the sounds we have learnt in phonics during that week. Please help your children to learn their spellings at home too. Also, please make sure you send the little green book back into school every Monday to allow the children to be able to write their new spellings into them, ready to practice at home! Each week, a new video will be updated to help your child practice their spellings at home in the Super Spellers playlist on my YouTube Channel 'Mrs G's Little Lessons', which can be found here:

Regular uploads to help you learn at home focusing on maths skills as well as reading skills will also be updated to my channel - why not have a go at some of these online little lessons too?
