Year 2

Gingko Team 


Class Teacher: Miss Zeina

Teaching Assistant: Mr Spencer

Hello Team 2,

We have had a fantastic start to the year! I was thrilled to see you all again after so long and I am very proud of the attitudes towards learning I have seen from everyone since we’ve been back! As you can imagine, we have lots of work to do and I am excited for the learning and fun that will be happening this year!

I will be uploading the home learning on this page every Wednesday. Reading diaries will go out every Thursday and back in on Tuesday (for commenting and changing of books).

I have sent out the spellings list for this term but please find them attached below. It is very important that you practice these ahead of the spelling test, which will take place weekly. Please ensure you practice these not only for the test but to ensure your child is able to spell these words correctly when writing in their everyday learning. Please note these words have been taken from the Year 1 and Year 2 list of common exception words.

Team 2 Spellings for Autumn Term

Please make sure you are reading with your child daily. It is very important that you ask them questions about what has been read and encourage them to use the text to help with their answers.

When reading encourage children to use their phonics with the following 3 steps

  1. Spot the special friends
  2. Fred Talk
  3. Say the word

This is something all children are familiar with and I will be going through this with you at our next parent teacher conference meeting.

Please email me your home learning at – this is a specific home learning email address for us to use.
