WELCOME TO YEAR 2!
A warm welcome to the new academic year! We are happy to see you all and hope you have had a great summer break. This is just a short note to introduce some of the routines for your children in Year 2. The children have had a lovely first week and have settled nicely into their new class. A copy of this letter will also be posted on our class page on the school website.
Our first topic of the year is Moon Zoom! It is a science-based topic on space and also focuses on the creative elements of story and creating imaginary characters. We have all the equipment you will need to get started so please do not bring any equipment or pencil cases with you from home.
PE will take place on Wednesday. For the foreseeable future, PE will only take place outdoors. Please could your child come to school already dressed in an outdoor PE kit (joggers/leggings, T-shirt, trainers and school jumper).
Snacks and drinks
Please could your child bring a healthy snack and a drink in a labelled container and water bottle everyday. Your child will need to bring their snack into class each morning so please ensure it is easily accessible to them. In order to maintain up to date records, please could you let me know of any allergies, medication or dietary requirements your child may have.
The children will be using the outdoor area on a daily basis however on a Friday we will be spending more of our time outdoors. As the weather starts to turn a little colder, please ensure your child has warm clothing particularly on these days or a raincoat if weather is changeable.
Please could reading books be brought in on your child’s reading day (their Y1 reading day initially). If your child finishes their reading book before their allocated reading day, we would encourage you to return books to be changed - please do not wait until their next reading day.
Weekly spelling and maths homework will be given out on the school website on a Friday in readiness for weekly spelling quiz which will take place on the following Friday.
Please visit our class page regularly. As well as all homework, I will post regular photos and videos in order to share all the great work we are doing in Year 2.
Hopefully this answers any questions you have. If there are any further queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Ms John.
Thank you for your support.
