Year 2 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Year 2.
My name is Mrs Johnson, I'm the Year 2 class teacher and Deputy Head teacher. In class 2 we also have Mrs Parsons, Miss Beckley and Mrs Bennett supporting and helping the children.
It has been a unusual year and things in school are now a little different, however don't worry as we will help and support the children get used to the new routines. The first few weeks will be settling into the new routines, getting to know our friends and spending time with our class bubble. Our first priority is to ensure the children are happy and settled back into school life.
To help and support you here are some of the routines in Year 2. These might change but I will keep you updated.
In Year 2 we bring reading books and diaries into school everyday. An adult at some point during the day will check diaries and change books where necessary. Please can you comment when you read with your child and clearly state when the book has been finished so we know when to change the books. All books will then go into quarantine before being used by another person.
Spellings are sent home each week on a Friday and tested the following Friday. All spellings link to the phonic and spelling patterns being taught in class. The children will get a plastic spelling folder, these need to be in school just on a Friday.
Messages can be passed via the school reading diaries. If you have an important message in the diary please encourage your child to pass the diaries to an adult as we don’t always look at them until the afternoon. You can also email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Snacks and Water Bottles
If your child has a snack for morning playtime please ensure it has no nuts in them. Please send your child with a named water bottle. These must be cleaned every night.
Most children in Year 2 have school lunches. However if your child would like to bring their own they can bring their lunch in a lunch box. Don't forget to put your name on it!
PE will be on a Wednesday and a Friday. Children will come to school wearing their PE kits as no PE bags are allowed in school at this time. Mrs Morgan has added a letter to the school website giving more information about PE kits. Please make sure your child is wearing jogging bottoms or leggings as they can get cold wearing shorts.
Due to Covid we have asked for no school bags or book bags to come into school at this time. However when the children are allowed bags in school I ask that children in Year 2 have book bags only. Our cloakroom is along the main corridor, therefore we are unable to have large rucksacks. The book bags fit into the drawers perfectly!
Money and slips
If you send any money or slips in to school, place them in the school diaries or ask your child to hand them to a Year 2 adult. We will then send it to the school office. Please ensure all envelopes with money inside are labelled clearly.
Homework is handed out on a Friday and expected to be completed and handed back in on the following Wednesday.
