-Year 2 A 2019 - 2020

Mr Fillis

 Mr Fillis' Class Page.

I would like to say a very warm welcome to my class page. We have had a wonderful start to the term in Year Two. I am so impressed with how hard everyone is working and we have adopted Peter Rabbit's motto to help us when work gets tricky... A good rabbit never gives up.

READING: In our class, we have a guided reading session once a week where we all help each other. We use our phonics and spelling rules to help us with unfamiliar words, clarifying the meaning too. We are now focusing on inference and answering questions based on the text. We also make predictions of what we think will happen next, based on what has happened so far. I am currently evaluating the reading groups and once these are done, your child will bring home a bookbanded book once a week. In addition to this, they are free to choose a library book for reading for pleasure each day. We will be starting special journals soon to keep track of this. So watch this space for further information. 

REMINDERS: Our outdoor PE is on a Tuesday, so please make sure that your child has a tracksuit and trainers for this.  We also have indoor PE on Wednesday, so they will need PE kits and pumps/ trainers. Please send in a water bottle each day and we would be most grateful for each child to bring in a box of tissues so that we can use these throughout the year, espcially as the colder weather approaches.

LETTERS AND SOUNDS: I will hand out the new reading/ spelling rule each FRIDAY - in the new journals. I then teach that rule the next week, this lets you know in advance what the focus for the upcoming week will be. There will be lots of activities and daily spelling lessons, followed by a test each Friday. Results will be recorded in journals for you to see. 

HOMEWORK: Your child will be given English and Maths homework each Friday, alongside their weekly spellings. Please bring it back on or before the following Friday, when the next set of homework will be given out. Maths homework will link to what we have been learning about in class, giving you a chance to consolidate that learning/give extra support to your child in that area. English homework will be word skills work or comprehension to support your child in answering questions about what they have read. I may also send home extra, personalised homework to support any areas that I notice your child may need help with.

If you have any concerns or questions, please don't hesistate to catch me at the classroom door when school finishes, or continue to use journal to communicate with me.

Between myself in class and with your support from home, I look forward to seeing just how far we can push your children on and enable them to reach their full potential this year. It should be an exciting and rewarding learning journey for all.

Kind Regards

Mr Fillis
