Welcome to Year 2
Welcome back! I hope you've all had a lovely summer. It is so nice to get back to some normality and into a routine. Our topic for Autumn 1 is “Our World”.
Class Teacher: Miss S. Pixton

PPA Teaching: Mrs H. Twigg
This year we will be studying the following topics:
Autumn 1: Our World
Autumn 2: Once Upon a Time
Spring 1: The First Flight
Spring 2: Wonderful Weather
Summer 1: Up, Up and Away!
Summer 2: At the Seaside!
The children will receive English and Maths homework every week. I would ask that the children attempt the homework independently but please support your child if needed. As well as this, I do ask that you read regularly with your child. Even if they have read the book, it is good practice to re-read the book so your child becomes more confident and fluent.
Reading Books / Library Books
Each child will be given some school books to bring home to read. Please keep these books at home until they are complete and only return them on book change days (Monday and Thursday).
Reading and Reflection Areas:
We have a dedicated reading area in class. The reading area has a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction books. The children will also use the library in school and may take a library book home each week.
We have a reflection area where the children are allowed to spend time reflecting upon anything that has happened in class or at home that week. We also use this as the basis for our class worship.
The children will be doing PE twice a week (on Wednesdays and Thursdays). Please ensure your child brings their PE kit into school in a bag (black or navy joggers/leggings, plain white/school t-shirt, trainers and their school jumper/cardigan/hoody).
The children will need a labelled water bottle (that they will take home every night).
In Key Stage 1 the children receive free fruit as a mid-morning snack and will be encouraged to try everything.
If your child wishes to have milk please register and pay via the website www.coolmilk.com and register. Cool Milk will then add your child to the list, ready for the following week.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to grab me at the end of the school day or contact me on ClassDojo.
