Year 2

Spring 2022


Howdy Year 2!

Class Teachers: Mrs Gibbison (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Savage (Thurs-Fri)

Class Teaching Assistant:  Miss Forbes and Mrs Bull (Fri)


This year, our class home will be Andy's Room from Toy Story! We hope to have lots of fun and learn many new things. We are excited to be experiencing Forest Schools this term. This links well to our topics, We are Foragers and Living Things in their habitats. 




Our P.E. day is Monday and you will need suitable clothes for Forest School on Wednesday. 

Please make sure your child comes dressed for PE (white top and black bottoms with suitable trainers/ pumps and no jewellery). .They will spend the whole day in their PE kit so don't need uniform on Mondays.


Reading Folder Day

Please send your child with their reading folder everyday. We will count reads on a Thursday afternoon ready for assembly on Friday. Remember you need to read at least three times per week!




Children will receive an optional homework menu. These can be completed and shared with Mrs. G or Mrs. S through SeeSaw.


We love to read! Please can your child read every night - it can be to you, their siblings, uncle or even the dog!! The more they read the better - plus you can win prizes!


This year we are also running a times table competition. Children are encouraged to practise the targets in their read diaries at home and will receive a treat if they reach the magic number of times practised. This term the number is 18 times.




Please keep them busy and productive by:

1) Reading, either real books or using Oxford Owl or Big Cat Library:
