Welcome to Year 2
Hello from Mrs Helmore-Sutton and Miss Lewis
We have had a fantastic start to term! You have all shown a really positive attitude.
Mrs Dusconi will be working alongside Mrs HS and Mrs Stanton will be working alongside Miss Lewis.
You will come in through the Year 2 outside classroom door in the mornings and be collected from this door at home time.
There will be a few things you will need to bring to school with you. Every day, bring your lunchbox (if you are not ordering a lunch), water bottle and book bag. Please do not bring any other items such as toys. If you know your child occasionally has toileting accidents, please send in a bag with some spare clothes and pants that can stay in school to cater for this.
Our PE day will be Wednesday and you will need to come to school wearing your school PE kit (white t-shirt, black or navy shorts/joggers and trainers) on this day each week. In cold weather make sure you wear your joggers and a fleece.
Just like in Year 1, reading is very important in Year 2. You will read regularly in school, as part of a group in guided reading and individually. We ask that adults at home hear you read at least 4 times every week and note this in your reading record so that you can earn rewards.
Our autumn term topic is ‘Space’. We will be finding out about the Moon Landing and the planets in our solar system. We will even train to be astronauts as part of our Space Camp day!
In Year 2 we have a class zone board. Everyone starts the day in the “green zone” and if you work really hard and show positive behaviour you will be moved up to “silver” or “gold”. You will then be rewarded with a sticker. If you are making wrong choices, you may move down the zone board to “orange” or “red” which may result in losing a playtime.
If you have any questions for us you can email us at email@example.com and we’ll try our best to answer them.
Thank you for taking the time to read our year group page.
