Year 2

Welcome to Year Two

 

Hello everyone!

As you know your teacher this year is me - Miss Wright!

We are also very lucky to have Mrs Helmoe-Larsen with us every morning and Mrs Burgess every afternoon. In addition, Miss Pickup will be with us to support your learning during some afternoons and on a Thursday she will teach the class whilst I have some PPA and Deputy Head time.

 

We are going to have a great year, lots of learning, lots of fun and lots of time to get to know each other!

 

 

 

Information regarding COVID-19 and Year 2

 

  • The children will begin the day at 8.40am entering through the new Y2 classroom door (at the rear of the school)

 

Morning breaktime is at 10.00am-10.15am

Hometime is at 3.05pm - the children will be brought to the playground for you to collect your child.

 

  • Where you have siblings with different start times, please bring them to school together at the earlier start time and pick them up at the later time. They must however, enter through their separate entrances. 
  • Children must wear clean PE kit or similar sportswear to school on Thursday's as we will not be getting changed at school for the time being. 
  • Water bottles must be filled and labelled with names. School will not provide water cups during lessons or play times. After lunch, children will be given the option of refilling water bottles with the help of their adults. Throughout the day, water coolers will not be in use.
  • Children can bring their usual bags or book bags to school. They will be provided with their own stationery. They can bring their own if they wish but they must not share any equipment with others.

Seesaw and Timestables Rockstars 

 

Timestables Rockstars has been set up for all of the children and their logins are inside their Reading Journal. If you should lose the login codes, please let me know!

 

The children will focus on using their knowledge of multiplication and division facts for 10 in the Autumn Term. This will be added to in the Spring Term with 2's and 5's. In the Summer Term I will add 3 timestables and division facts too.

 

The children will complete short timed games to practise their skills and which they earn coins to purchase Rock Star outfits and guitars! 

 

Seesaw is the platform for the children's homework, learning at home, additional work/activities. If you should need a new login please let me know. I will from time to time put messages for parents onto the Family Announcements section in addition.
