The children have settled in really well and have been working really hard and getting into the way Year 2 works. The children are learning to be more independent. I know it must be frustrating when they leave belonging behind in school but I am trying very hard to get them to take responsibility for their own belongings.
Hopefully you will have all read the information below but here is a copy for you.
Welcome to Year 2
We hope that you have all had a happy Summer and are ready for a busy and fruitful year. We will be working very hard on developing the children’s independence and appreciate your support in this. Although this year will be challenging for the children we will ensure that the children are happy, motivated and really enjoy coming to school. We will try to make everything as fun as possible. Just after Christmas we will be holding a meeting specifically for SATS.
Spellings- These will be given out for the half term next week. Children will be informally tested on these spellings on a Friday.
Equipment- In Year 2 the children are allowed to bring in their own pencil cases to use in some lessons. This is entirely voluntary and can be kept in their trays or they can bring them in daily. We are planning to do more outdoor activities so we would like the children to have a pair of wellies and some old trousers or joggers to keep in school. Please put them in a labelled bag.
P.E. – Please ensure that the children have their P.E kits in school at all times. P.E will be on Tuesdays.
If you have any concerns or queries at any time do not hesitate to write us a note or come and see us. You can also send us an email via the school office. We’re extremely approachable and believe that working together we will achieve the best for your child. The best times to see us is after school.
Thank you for your support.
