In Math's we will be learning our 2,3,5 and 10 times table in year 2. A great way to practice these is by accessing TT Rockstars. https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth
Children will earn a Dojo point every time they read!
The minimum expectation for reading is 3x a week. Reading books will be changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Every time you read with your child you will need to sign and date in their reading record.
At the end of each term the children will spend their dojo points at the school dojo bank, which is full of wonderful prizes.
Reading books can also be accessed via Oxford Reading Buddy https://www.oxfordreadingbuddy.com/uk
A few important messages!

Our PE day is Monday. PE kit should consist of a white t-shirt with black, grey or navy trousers or shorts.
Head Lice - In order to keep head lice at bay please check your child nearly every day.
