Howdy Year 2!
Class Teachers: Mrs Gibbison (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Savage (Thurs-Fri)
Class Teaching Assistant: Mrs Kacperski and Miss Forbes
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. To start off the year, we'll be using some play based activities to help the children settle in and continue enjoying the discovery and curiosity approach to learning that they have been familiar with in Year 1. This will then move to more formal learning as the year progresses.
Our P.E. day is Monday.
Please make sure your child comes dressed for PE (white top and dark bottoms with suitable trainers/ pumps and no jewellery). Please send water bottles. They will spend the whole day in their PE kit so don't need uniform on Mondays.
Reading Folder Day
We will be changing reading books once a week only due to the current Covid regulations. Our reading folder day will be a Tuesday. Please do not send anything into school on any other day.
Children will receive an optional homework sheet. If one of these activities is completed in the week, pupils will be awarded a Marvellous Me badge.
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!
