Year 2 PH

Welcome to Year 2 PH

 

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.

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

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.

Staff- As you are aware Mrs Holland is the class teacher for 2PH and Mrs Hudson for 2NH.

Reading- Reading books are changed on Mondays. Please try to read with your child daily as it makes such a difference to their learning. The children will be getting certificates for reading regularly at home.

Spellings- These will be given out for the half term next week. Children will be informally tested on these spellings on a Friday.

Topic- Our topic this term is ”Healthy Humans” with a big focus on Food. If the children have any books or artefacts related to the topic they are welcome to bring them in for us to share during the half term. Please ensure that everything is clearly labelled so that we can return things to their owners! We are sending a copy home of our topic web and in the next few weeks more information will be available on our class pages on the website.

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.

Homework- This is given out on Fridays and needs to be returned to school by the following Wednesday am.   In line with the School Homework Policy English and Maths tasks will be sent home alternate weeks. Each half term there will be a project to complete.

P.E. – Please ensure that the children have their P.E kits in school at all times. P.E will be on Tuesdays.

Water and snacks- It is important that the children have their own named water bottle in school. We will try our best that the children bring it home each night in order for it to be refilled. The children are provided with fresh fruit or raisins each day at break time.

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.

Mrs Holland
