Term 2 - Let there be Light!
As we lead up to Christmas, Kingfishers will be learning about all things light and dark! Fireworks and The gunpowder plot, Divali, light and electricity and nocturnal animals. Not forgetting all the lights linked to Christmas!
Reading in Kingfishers
We have had to put new systems in place for changing books and hearing children read to ensure books are quarantined between uses. Therefore we will be changing reading books once a week - this will either be on Wednesdays or Thursdays. Your child will then bring 2 books home for that period of time.
We are in the early stages of assessing reading levels, following a long break from school, so you may find their reading book levels will change several times over the next few weeks. Please bare with us while we find the level that supports your child best to feel confident but also challenges them.
Please read as regularly as you can - at least 4 times a week. Year 2 is a crucial age for reading development and the more you do, the more progress you will see!
