Winnall Primary School

Red - Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 and Miss Warren's class

Important information:

  • Children need to bring in a named bottle of water each day.
  • The children have PE and dance sessions each week, so will need to wear their PE kit to school on Wednesdays and Thursdays. This needs to include PE shoes, shorts/leggings, t-shirt and warmer wear for the winter. 
  • Book bags need to be in every day. Please hear your children read for 5-10 minutes every day and REMEMBER TO SIGN THEIR DIARIES so that they can earn stamps towards prizes.
  • Homework is given out on Thursdays and due back on the following Thursday. Please help your child read their spelling words and then once a day correctly spell them.

Phonics Formation Powerpoint

Phonics treasure hunt

See if your child can independently decode the name of each item as they hunt and take a picture! Can you find all of the items? 


Phonics screening check 

All of the children's hard work in phonics has been leading up to sounding out and blending a set of 40 real and nonsense words - It's really useful for the children to practice reading lots of these words.


If you are able to print the attachments please encourage your child to sound button the words - this helps them to sound it out and segment the word together. The children are used to sound buttoning real and nonsense words with lines and dots (sausages and peas). Alternatively you/your child can write the words and then they can sound button them. When more than one letter makes one sound e.g. /ay/ in play children use a line (sausage), for a single letter making a single sound e.g. the /p/ in play use a dot (pea). 


Examples of sound buttons with the /ea/ and /a-e/ sounds
