We hope everyone has had an enjoyable and fun filled summer holiday with family and friends and are ready and eager to begin the new school year. The Year 2 team are delighted to be teaching your children this year, and our aim is to ensure that your child is happy and successful, whilst working in an exciting, hardworking, stimulating and challenging environment.
The children of Year 2 are lucky this year to have two teachers on the team. Mrs McBride will be teaching on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday; Mrs Burwood will be teaching on a Thursday and Friday. Mrs Pissarides will be supporting the children all week.
To support the children’s learning in class, we will be sending homework home each Wednesday and expect it to be completed and handed back on Monday mornings.
Homework will consist of spelling, literacy and maths. PE will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so please make sure your child has a complete PE kit in school on those days. One of our sessions will be outside, so trainers will be necessary.
We will be offering your child the opportunity to change their reading books daily and we will be trying to encourage them to become more independent and put their book in the changing box when they would like a new book. We will remind the children each day, but if you feel that your child is not changing their book when they should be doing, please let us know and we will offer them more support.
Your child is able to bring a water bottle into school each day. We will remind your child to take their bottle home at the end of each day.
It is important to us that we work together as a partnership to develop each child so if you have any concerns at all, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us.
Many thanks for your continued support,
Mrs McBride, Mrs Burwood and Mrs Pissarides
