WELCOME TO YEAR 2
We are so excited to welcome all the children back after such a long break. We have a really exciting Autumn term prepared for the children.
In Year 2 we have 2 classes. Badger Class is taught by Mrs Brock on Monday to Wednesday and Mrs McAloon on Wednesday to Friday. Hedgehog Class is taught by Miss Bufton. Our Teaching assistants are Mrs Stanley, Mrs Collins, Miss Barnes and Miss Dalfsen. We are lucky enough to also have Mrs Hughes helping us until she goes on maternity leave.
PE lessons will be on Wednesdays and will be taught by Mrs McAloon and NSSport. Until further notice, we ask for the children to come dressed in their PE kit on the day that they have their PE lesson. They can then go home dressed in their PE kit and have it washed and ready to wear again the following week.
We are going to change books once a week now. Each child will take two or three books home on a Monday and keep them until Friday. This way we will be able to isolate books safely before they are needed again (they will be in quarantine until Monday). The children will need to put their reading diary and books into the appropriate box on a Friday morning. We will not be going through their book bags for them - it is their responsibility to let us know if it needs changing. We will endeavour to listen to the children read at least once a week and will make a little note in their reading diary. Please make a comment when you hear you children read.
There are so many exciting things happening this year. Our first topic is ‘Our Environment’ in combined studies, we are looking in to go on a trip somewhere locally to investigate what it is like.
Please can you also keep an eye on our Dojo page as we will be sharing the children's work on there regularly.
