Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome to Year 2!

We are all really looking forward to another successful and enjoyable year!

Curriculum Coverage
This half term our theme is ‘Ahoy There’ and the second half term it will be ’Time Travellers.’ Please see our curriculum coverage on the school website within Year 2. We are looking forward to Pirate Day on the 20th October “Me-Hearties!”

 Who’s Who?
No doubt you’ve heard the names… 2R… Mrs Russell, assisted by Mrs Knight 2S … Mrs Summers, assisted by Mrs Paton, Mrs Churchill 2TC… Miss Turner/Mrs Curthoys assisted by Mrs Clark, Mrs Paton and Mrs Wademan

Looking Ahead
Please could we remind you that the months of April and May 2018 are a very important time for your child. They will be undertaking end of Key Stage 1 tests and tasks (currently known as SATS). Every month of Year 2 is important for your child, but none more so than April and May, so please ensure your child is in school at this time. Thank you.

We hope that your child will enjoy their time in Year 2. One of our priorities is to develop the children’s independence and attitude towards work. So therefore, the children will be working at a faster pace and be expected to use their initiative. We will be holding an expectation meeting to briefly outline how Year 2 works. The date for our expectation meetings for parents is; Tuesday 19th September at 2.30pm Look out for how to sign up for these nearer the time! A letter will be sent out via email with an online booking link.

And finally…
Please, please, please could you label everything that your child brings to school. It is almost impossible to tell one jumper from another!

Don’t forget – homework will be given on a Friday. This may take the form of Numeracy, Literacy or theme based work.

A reading book will be sent home each week on the day your child reads with their teacher. Please ensure your child’s reading book and home/school link book is in their bag every day. We will be sending a list of theme based spellings home this half term for your child to practise reading and writing.

Thank you for your continuing support,

Best Wishes, Mrs Summers Miss Turner and Mrs Curthoys Mrs Russell

Don’t forget if anyone has any expertise or interest in the sea, ships, Royal Navy, fishing etc and would like to share this with the children please contact us.
