Welcome to Year 2
Welcome back after the summer holiday. We are very much looking forward to working with you all over the coming year.
In Year 2 we have two classes- Wilby class, who is taught by Mrs Causebrook with Miss Bunker supporting as Teaching Assistant and Ecton Class, taught by Miss Jones and supported by Miss Wood as Teaching Assistant.
Mrs Lightfoot and Mr Dalton will be covering during the week in both Wilby and Ecton class so you may see their faces at the end of the day! On a Thursday, Ecton Class will be taught by Miss Davies, so you may see her too.
In Year 2, we aim to encourage the children to be as independent and responsible for their belongings and their learning as possible. It is their responsibility to put their reading book and journal into the book box every morning, where their journals will be collected in and monitored for their reading.
Reading in Year 2
The children will be able to change their reading book every day if they have read at home and the journal has been signed by an adult at home. Please feel free to write any comments in the journal too, regarding their reading. They will need to bring their reading books and journal to school every day, as they will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week at school.
PE will be on Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that on these days your child has their PE kit in school, long hair must be tied back and earrings removed.
In Year 2, the children still have the opportunity to have a free healthy fruit snack during their morning break. They are also allowed to bring a water bottle into school to have during break time too. Please ensure that their water bottle is named as many of the children have similar bottles.
Finally, please could you ensure that all of your child’s uniform, including P.E kits, coats and any other items are named. This enables the children to be much more independent and responsible for looking after their property and we can give things back to the right people.
If you have any questions regarding anything to do with the school day or your child’s learning, please feel free to speak to a member of the Year 2 Team.
