Year 2F

Welcome to 2F

Welcome back to all our children

Our topic this half term is based on the beautifully illustrated children’s book, ‘A River.’ Click on the link to share the book with your child.

In English the children will describe the characters and setting in the story, then write their own circular story.

In Maths the children will be developing their knowledge of place value, using numbers up to 100. They will represent numbers using concrete objects, pictorial representations and formal methods. The children will be partitioning numbers in different ways.

Reading books must be in school daily with your reading record. All of the children have a reading book, which is appropriate to their reading level – Please sign each time your child has read with you. We have a reading race in class, where the children can earn a bead for each completed book. It is expected that your child will read at least three times per week and have their reading diaries signed by a parent/guardian.

Homework is given on a Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. If it is not returned by Wednesday, children will attend homework club on Wednesday lunchtime to complete it. Your child’s class teacher is available on Monday or Tuesday to help any child, who is finding their homework difficult.

Our PE days are currently Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Please remember that your child’s full PE kit must be in school: white t-shirt, red shorts and black school pumps or trainers – joggers or tracksuit trousers and sweat tops may be worn for outdoor PE. Remember not to wear earrings on these days please.

Simms Cross Superstars

Each week one child from 2F is chosen to be a Simms Cross Superstar and receive a postcard in our Friday Celebration Assembly.

Golden Tie Award

Each week a child will be chosen who has gone ‘Above and Beyond’ in their learning and behaviour. They will wear a golden tie all week and go home in this tie to share their success with parents. (Please make sure that the tie is returned to the class teacher on a Friday).
