Welcome to Year 2
The Year 2 Staff
In Year 2, our teachers are Mrs Martin and Mrs Walls. We have a fantastic Teaching Assistant who helps in both classes, her name is Mrs Parsons. We are very fortunate to also have Miss Moth, Miss Riddler and Miss Kelly who also help us with our learning in Year 2.
2VM are very lucky to have their PPA covered by Mrs Lowe every second Thursday/Friday and 2ZW are very lucky to have their PPA covered by Mrs Morris every second Thursday.
What Our Week Looks Like
Year 2 parents and carers are welcome to come in to class for our Early Morning Task each day from 8:40am and stay until 8:55am when we begin the day together with a prayer. This is a very good time to talk to your child's class teacher if you ever have any messages, questions or concerns about your child's learning. If you are unable to stay during Early Morning Task then please do not hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher or another member of the Year Two team at home time and we will always be happy to help in whatever way we can.
In Year 2 we have homework each week which you will see when you log in to DB Primary. We have a list of spellings every week and either a Reading, Maths or Handwriting homework to complete too. Please open, complete and submit the homework tasks each week before Friday morning.
We take home and read our reading books every night. Once they have been read twice and an adult has signed our reading records we can change them on a Monday or a Thursday. It is very important that the books have been read through twice to fully develop our fluent reading of any tricky words and develop our comprehension of the text too. Everyone should be using their yellow Y2 reading bookmark to help with this as it has key question stems to help you think about the book more deeply.
2VM have PE every Monday and Thursday and 2ZW have PE every Monday and Wednesday.
Outside each classroom there is a welly boot rack ready to be used. Everyone needs to have their welly boots named and in school for some OPAL fun every lunchtime as well as during our weekly Forest School sessions with Mrs Sysum. On Wednesday 2VM go to Forest School and 2ZW go on Thursday.
We are looking forward to having a great school year together!
