Welcome to Year 2
Hello from Miss Lewis and Mrs Heath,
We hope you have had a fantastic holiday! We are so looking forward to seeing you and we have been busy preparing our classrooms and planning all of the exciting things we will be learning. Mrs Stanton and Mrs Lewis will be working alongside Miss Lewis and Mrs Dusconi and Mrs Preece will be working alongside Mrs Heath.
Miss Lewis Mrs Heath
You will come in through the Year 2 outside classroom door in the mornings and be collected from this door at home time. Staff will be on the playground to greet and guide you on your first day back and we will meet you at our classroom door to welcome you in.
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 Thursday 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 at the end of the day. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll try our best to answer them.
Have a lovely summer and we will see you in September!
