Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

 

"The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you." - BB King

I am Miss Fletcher and I will be your class teacher in Year 2 (Monday - Thursday).

 

 

We will be supported in class by Mr Davy, Miss Shenton, Mrs Treadwell and Mrs Smith. Mrs Furnell will be carrying out interventions Monday-Wednesday.

 

We are looking forward to welcoming you all back and are excited to be part of your learning journey this year.

Pick up and Drop off

Drop off

Children should be dropped off at either gate on Lynwood Avenue or St Alban's at 8:50am and enter school through the closest entrance. Children should be in class no later than 9am. Anyone arriving after 9am will need to sign in at the school office.

 

Collection

All children should be collected from the playground. Your child will be allowed to leave the Year 2 classroom once a known adult has been seen by the member of staff dismissing the children.

 

 

Please note our new collection time is 3:30pm.

P.E and Forest School

P.E will be taught by Mr Ellison on a Tuesday and Thursday. Children should come to school on these days wearing their full P.E kit with their school jumper/cardigan over the top or the new school quarter zip P.E top. Children can wear black/dark coloured joggers over the top of their shorts if the weather is cooler. Hoodies are not permitted.

 

Year 2 will have their Forest School session with Miss Mears on a Monday morning. Children will need to come to school dressed in their outdoor clothes and shoes and bring their school uniform in a separate bag to get changed into.

 

Reading

Reading at home plays an important part in developing the skills of a young reader and we encourage you to help in the progression of your child's reading skills by hearing them read at home daily if possible, but if not at least three times a week.  We aim to change books in class on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Occasionally there may be changes to our routine that makes it difficult for that to happen; don't worry about this as it builds up fluency to reread books at this age.  

 

When you have listened to your child read, if you could record it in the reading record book, along with any comments on how they read, this will help us when changing reading books. Reading books should be brought into school daily in a school book bag or school back pack.  

 

Children receive extra smilies, stickers and prizes as incentives for their home reading.

 

 

Homework

Homework grids will be sent out on the first Friday of each half term. They will consist of a variety of activities for your child to choose from. Only one task needs to be completed each week. A copy of the homework grid will also be posted on ClassDojo and on the Year 2 page on the website. Homework can be recorded in homework books or photos can be taken and sent to me on ClassDojo.

 

A list of spellings will be sent home each Friday. These will need to be practised at home ready for a spelling test in class the following Friday.

 

Uniform

Just a reminder at the start of the school year, that all items of uniform must be labelled with your child's full name in order to avoid misplaced items.  Children do, at times, need to take their jumpers off in class, and clothing can quickly become lost or mixed up if it isn't labelled.  Without named items of clothing it becomes really difficult to match missing items to their owners.

 

Please be aware that jewellery isn't allowed in school.  We advise that ear piercing is saved for the summer holidays so that they can heal before the start of the new school year.  

Class Dojo

Across school, we use Class Dojo (clicking this will take you to the page) to communicate information from class but also the wider school. Please continue to check Dojo regularly as their may be some important information relevant to you. Throughout the year, we will update our class page with what has been going in class along with any badge/certificate winners.

 

Please note that Dojo messages will only be received during the hours of 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday, so please don't worry if you don't receive an immediate response.

 

 

Purple Mash

We use Purple Mash in school to support learning in computing, and across other areas of the curriculum.  Your child will bring home their Purple Mash login details in their reading record and homework books.  They can access Purple Mash at home by following the link bellow and using their individual login details.

Times Tables

Learning our times tables is very important. It underpins our Math such as counting, number bonds and place value. If children can get a firm grasp of their times tables then they have a solid arithmetical foundation for future problem-solving. In school, we use TT Rock Stars. Your child will be sent home with their log in and can access this fun and interactive way to learn their times tables. We will have an in class display showing their rock status so playing it as much as possible is very important.

Online Safety

Internet safety for children is a top priority when children browse the web. It is important to safeguard them from dangers such as obscenity, malwares, scams, phishing, identify theft, cyberbullying etc. Please take a look at the following links for more information.
