Welcome to Year 2



Dear Parents,

Welcome to Year 2!  I am delighted to be working with your children as the Year 2 class teacher.  Thank you to those who have already introduced themselves to me and our teaching assistant, Mrs Concannon.  If we have not yet met, please come to the playground at the end of the school day; it would be lovely to meet you.                       

                          Mrs Breen and Mrs Concannon

A few things I would like to highlight;

  • Please ensure only essential equipment is brought into school, such as packed lunch, water bottle, PE uniform, reading record, reading book and homework. This may also include a pencil case.
  • PE this term will be on Tuesdays and Fridays, weather permitting. 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 are removed for PE days.
  • Homework will usually be given out on Fridays and expected in the following Friday. Details of homework will be explained to the children and will be available for you to read on the school website in the Year 2 Class Page.  Each week children will receive a set of spellings to learn, a times table to focus on and a piece of written work or some maths calculations.
  • 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 and reading records must be brought into school daily.
  • Reading records can also be used as contact books between home and school.

Term 2: 15th to 19th November Anti-Bullying Week Activities ONE KIND WORD

During Anti-Bullying Week, Year 2 children acted out some scenarios where one of the children in their group was being bullied by other children.  The children discussed what it felt like to hear unkind words and to be the victim of unkind behaviour.  A bystander then stepped in with kind words and behaviours to help the person who had been bullied.  We freeze-framed the children's acting.  The children added their own speech bubbles to the scenarios.

We all agreed that kind words are very important.
