Hello and welcome to Year 2!
Our classes are called Earle and Gates after the female Marine Biologists, Cynthia Earle and Ruth Gates. These women have defied stereotypes, and have helped raise the importance of oceanic conservation.
This year, we will be using their examples to reinforce the ides behind our ASPIRE learning attributes - attention, support, perseverance, improvement, reflection and exploration.
Reading - In Year 2, children have the opportunity to have their books changed daily in order to increase their ‘reading mileage’.
It is vital that your child has regular opportunities to practise their reading, ideally for at least 10 minutes a day. This is to ensure they are exposed to a variety of vocabulary which will support their writing and questioning children about the text will help develop their comprehension skills.
