Welcome to Year 2!
The teachers are Miss Khan in Enormous Crocodiles and Mrs Jackson in BFG who are both really excited for the year ahead! Carol and Sonia will be working in the class during the morning supporting lots of groups of children in their learning and with smaller groups in the afternoons from across the year group.
We are joined by Laura in the mornings who will be working for a few days of the week to help us all with our learning skills in class. We are also ably supported by Miss Stevens (our P.E teacher) and Vic (our Hub LSA) who will be covering on a Monday afternoon while plan the exciting learning that will be going on the following week. Miss Griffiths will also be working with BFG on a Tuesday afternoon.
If you ever need to speak to us about anything, big or small, please come find us on the playground or phone the office to make an appointment (better for the big things!).
Homework will be set every Thursday and should be handed back in every Monday. They will be set homework that will link to and support learning in class. If children need further help, then homework club runs after school every Thursday.
Miss Stevens (our school's sport coach) will deliver PE every Monday afternoon.
It would be helpful if children came to school wearing their school uniform with their PE kit in a bag.
We encourage parents to read at home daily. They should read for at least 15 minutes in the evening and it will really help push on children's learning if they were asked questions about what they have just read. Please remember that this does not need to be a level book as we encourage children to develop a love of reading.
Children can change books every Friday and are able to take 3 reading books at one time. We have a new electronic lending system which should make lending easier and enable us to monitor who is and isn't regularly taking books. To support your child even further, the school has a subscription to BugClub; a fantastic reading, spelling and grammar resource that your child can access at home. All children will know their log in details and need the school code: gxg3
If your child does not have a book bag, one can be purchased cheaply from the school office.
