It is essential that children read at home at least four times per week. Regular reading has a enormous impact on children’s learning and confidence across the curriculum. Reading books are changed once a week. If you need it changed before then please let us know.
Homework is given out every Friday and is to be handed in every Thursday. Spellings tests are every Friday, please keep your spelling folders until Friday so you can practice every night.
We have an exciting spring term ahead of us in year 2! This half term we will be learning about length, weight and time in maths. In English we are reading the book Claude in the city by Alex Smith and learning how to use descriptive writing to write diary entries and own version of the story.
In topic we will be learning about minibeasts in our topic Wriggle and Crawl. In this topic we will learn about habitats, life cycles, classifying animals and things animals need to stay alive.

We had a fantastic start to year 2. Autumn term was filled with lots of fun, learning and glitter! The children quickly settled into year 2 and enjoyed learning about their local environment, castles and towers in the year 2 topic curriculum.
The term ended with our outstanding performance in A King is Born. The children worked extremely hard to overcome their fears and perform to a crowd of excited and proud parents and carers. Once again, thank you to all the parents and carers for their support in helping the children practise their lines and actions
Please read our newsletters to find out more information about what we learnt autumn term.
Each year, your child’s teacher is responsible for making a judgement about the standard your child is working. At St James’ children sit tests in Year 1 - 6 throughout the year to help with this teacher assessment. In year 2 and year 6 the end of year tests are different because they are national tests. There will be a parent information session later in the year so teachers can explain the process. In the meantime, you can access information below.
There are lots of ways you can support your child prepare for these tests at home:
