On behalf of Mrs Marin and Miss Bryant we would like to welcome you to our Year 2 class page.
We are so delighted to see you back in school after such a long time away! Miss Bryant and I are looking forward to getting to know you and working with you. Things might look a little bit different to what you were used to but we are confident you will get used to this new normal really quickly and enjoy learning again.
Start and Finish Times
To help our school with social distancing and keeping everyone safe, school is staggering our start and finish times for each year group.
Year 2 will be dropped off at the main gate at 8:50 and picked up at the same place at 15.05 everyday. Please make sure that you are keeping 2 metres away from other parents whilst you are waiting.
Our PE days are Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Children will have to come to school in their PE kit on those days. They will wear their PE kit all day.
Water Bottles and Snacks
It is important to keep our bodies fuelled and hydrated for learning. Please remember to provide your child with a healthy snack and a water bottle. They will be able to refill it with fresh water if they ran out.
Please ensure children bring their book bags everyday into school. We will change their books at least three times a week. Your child will be bringing books home at an appropriate level to share with you. It is important that they are regularly heard read and that they write a comment bout the book they've enjoyed.
Children will be bringing their weekly homework book on Fridays which they need to return by Tuesday. Children need to choose from the activities from the Termly Homework which is stuck in their purple book.
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or require any clarification.
The grid is divided into three areas: Spelling, Mathematics and Other Learning. Children are expected to complete at least two spelling activities (green section) and one maths activity (blue section) per week. Additionally, children choose another two to three activities from other areas of the curriculum such as History, Science, Geography or art from the purple section every term.
The spelling words for the week will be stuck inside their purple Homework books every Friday. Children can use the activities on the Green section to practice their spellings. It is more beneficial for children to practice a few times a week than several times on one day.
If your child is having a School Dinner, please order their lunch on line.
Visit our blog page! We will be regularly updating it with pictures, videos and some excellent comments and writing from the children. We would appreciate it if you could visit and leave a comment.
