Welcome To Year 2
Welcome to a new year and a new class for your child. I soon hope to have the opportunity to meet and get to know you. We have a great team of adults working in Year 2 made up of
Mrs Tate, Miss Varney and myself, Mrs Cavender.
Mrs Tate will be in class on a Tuesday afternoon to cover PPA.
We have an exciting term ahead and we are looking forward to our topic based on The Great Plague and the Fire of London – look out for our topic letter coming soon.
A Few Requests
The children should bring their P.E kits to school every week and all kit should be CLEARLY named please. P.E is now on Monday and Thursday afternoons. Can we also ask for coats and sweatshirts to be named visibly in order to return to their owner easily if they are misplaced. Named water bottles should ideally be kept in school throughout the week.
Homework will be sent home every Friday and should be returned to school by Wednesday please, to allow for marking. House-points are awarded to every child who has attempted the homework.
Reading with an adult is invaluable and we would appreciate it if you could read with your child daily and make a note in their reading record – it makes a huge difference to their progress and children are rewarded for reading to an adult by going up our class rainbow, which gains them house-points. If I can support you in any way with this, please do let me know. I will be reading with your child each week to monitor progress and teach skills.
Spellings to practice will be sent home weekly and we would encourage the children to write the words down as they practice rather than just spell them aloud.
Mathletics homework is set each Friday and will need to be completed before your child is able to ‘free play’ on the site. Logons will be the same as for Year 1, but if you need this it will be stapled to the inside of the reading record book.
Lastly, please feel free to come and see me if you have any concerns or worries, or alternatively, write a note in your child’s reading record.
Looking forward to working with you this term.
