Welcome to Year 2
A very warm welcome from all of the Year 2 team.
Meet The Team
Welcome to the new school year!
A very warm welcome to the new academic year from all of the Year Two team! All of the children have settled in beautifully and are rearing to go! They have taken to new routines and expectations well, and they are already beginning to work hard in their curriculum lessons.
Please find below the Pine and Willow 'Meet the Teacher' presentations should you wish to remind yourself of any key information.
Mr. Hayward-Mitchell & Ms. Bamford
PE will be every Monday and Tuesday. The children will also be taking part in daily exercise both inside and outside. Please can you ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school all week. PE kit includes a plain white or white JC t-shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers. Please send socks if your child is wearing tights. Children will need to have earrings removed for PE lessons.
Water is available to the children throughout the day in the classroom. Please provide them with a named water bottle. These will be sent home daily.
Your child has been issued with a Communication Dairy. We ask that all children read at least three times a week at home and have their diary signed by an adult at home. If you have any questions or queries, please use the diary and ask your child to let us know that there is a message for us.
Each half term, your child will be sent home with a 'Homework Grid' sheet. Our expectation is that the children complete the grey boxes weekly, and choose one other piece of homework each week. Children may bring in any completed homework at any point throughout the term.
This half terms Homework Grid is below:
Just a reminder that toys should not be brought into school.
The Year 2 classrooms are fully equipped with the stationery that the children will need. We encourage children not to bring anything to school that is valuable to them, as we cannot account for things going missing.
This half term, our topic is called 'What does it mean to be equal?' This follows on from our Year Two transition project and we will be using a wide range of texts to help us in answering our question.
