Chinese Dragon Dance

This week we had a visit from a Chinese dancer who showed us how to do a traditional Chinese dragon dance!

It was lots of fun, we really liked the bright and colourful dragon head, and enjoyed taking turns to be the front of the dragon.

Ask us all about it, we’d love to tell you!

Year 2 Common Exception Words

Spelling in the National Curriculum- Year 2

Your child is learning spellings set out in the National Curriculum this year. Phonic knowledge will underpin the teaching of common spelling ‘rules’ which will be taught every week. However, many words in the English language seem to follow no pattern – these are known as ‘exception words’.

These words are a mixture of words which pupils frequently use in their writing but can often misspell.

If you would like to work on helping your child practice these spellings at home, your child will benefit greatly.

Thank you for your continued support
