Welcome to Year 2
Epiphany & Lent Terms 2023
Happy New Year. Thank you for your kind wishes, cards and very generous gifts that Mrs Spier and I received. We hope that you have all had a fantastic Christmas break. Your children have been enthusiastically sharing some of their adventures; what an amazing time they have had.
Thank you to everyone who came to share our Christmas performances and DT afternoon. The children were so proud to share their learning.
We are very excited about our new learning for the next two terms. Please have a look over our class curriculum. If you have any questions, please come to the classroom at the end of the school day. Alternatively, if you have any concerns of a more delicate nature, please make an appointment with me so we can talk these through.
Mrs Breen and Mrs Spier
A Few Things I would like to highlight:
- PE this term will be on Fridays. Please can children have their full, clearly named, PE kit in school at all times, including socks for girls who normally wear tights as part of their school uniform. We would appreciate that earrings and watches are removed for PE.
- Homework will usually be given out on Fridays and expected in the following Friday. Each week children will receive spellings to learn and understand, a times table to focus on and a piece of work to complete in their CGP Workbook (comprehension or some maths calculations). Please work with your child to complete their home tasks.
- Children are also encouraged to read daily at home, reading aloud to an adult who can discuss the text with them. Reading is to be recorded in their reading record. Reading books will be changed weekly or more often on request.
- Reading records can also be used as contact books between home and school.
