Welcome to Year 2
The classes are as follows:
Sycamore - Mrs Perkins, Miss Alexander & Mrs Whiting
Maple - Mr Andreone & Mrs Bouette
Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has full PE kit in school every day as well as a water bottle. Please also send your child in with an art apron (an old shirt will do!) to use during our Art lessons, these will stay in school.
We follow an engaging creative curriculum which empowers children to reach their full potential. Our aim is to develop children as life- long learners and enable them to develop a love for learning. Our topic this term is The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch and we will be teaching most of our subjects around this topic.
Throughout the year we will work to deepen children’s understanding of the skills needed to be a competent learner through our 7 Learning Powers, Growth Mindset and the 4 E's.
It is important that your child reads daily at home with an adult, even if it is only for 5 minutes. Please comment and sign on the ‘home’ page when you have read together. Children will learn how to sign their own reading record when reading independently in class, please encourage your children to do this also. We will hear your children read once weekly and sign their reading record. Please let us know if you could offer your time to come in and hear readers.
Children will complete a Speedy Spelling quiz once a week as well as a Speedy Spider times table sheet.
As part of each of our topics children will also receive a Home Learning Grid. This grid will contain different activities to complete at home. The activities are cross curricular and aim to support children's learning in a variety of ways such as verbal, musical, visual, interpersonal, intrapersonal, mathematical and kinaesthetic. Please read the information at the bottom of the grids to find out which activities to complete. More information will follow later in the term when these activities are up and running.
If you have any questions or concerns please do come and talk to us. The best time to do this is after school. Alternatively please email the school office or leave a message for us to call you at a time that is convenient.
We look forward to the year ahead.
Mrs Perkins & Mr Andreone
