Welcome To Year 2 : Autumn Term 2019
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. In the class there will be Mrs Waterton, teaching assistant and Mrs Cavender, teacher and we will be here to greet the children every day.
We have an exciting term ahead and we are looking forward to our topic ‘All About Me! – look out more details in our topic letter coming soon.
A Few Requests
To help the children be independent, all personal belongings should be CLEARLY named please. P.E is now on Wednesday afternoons and the children should bring and leave their P.E kits in school all week. Named water bottles should ideally be kept in school and children have access to these throughout the day, filling them up as needed.
Homework and a library book will be sent home every Friday and should be returned to school by Wednesday please, to allow for marking and return. On Friday, 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. We hope that the year ahead will be a happy and exciting one, but change can be tricky, so please don’t hesitate.
Looking forward to working with you this term.
