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. 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. days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.
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 Tuesdays and Thursdays.
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!
