Year 2 Letters Home

Monday 10th September 2018

Dear Parents,

Welcome to year 2! We are very excited to get to know you (and Miss Jackman to know you better) and experience lots of lovely learning.

This year our team is: Miss Curson (Year 2 Yellow), Miss Jackman (Year 2 Blue), Miss Gore, Mrs Loosley and Mrs Myers (Learning Support Assistants).

This term our topic is ‘Colour’ and we are hoping to incorporate this into as much learning as possible. We shall be looking at creating colour boards for seasons in Science, researching abstract artists and using primary and secondary colours in Art and exploring the colours we see in our surrounding environment.

Our PE days are on Monday and Friday for Year 2 Blue and Tuesday and Friday for Year 2 Yellow; please make sure your child has anamed PE kit in school at all times as we sometimes need to change the days due to weather or other commitments.

Home Learning – Your child will receive a guided reading book and a worksheet linked to their book on Mondays. Please ensure they bring their guided reading book on Mondays with their completed home learning. They will also receive a weekly phonics sheet on Mondays linked to what we are learning in class. Please return by the following Monday. Additionally there will be a termly take-away menu of homework ideas – one item should be completed each week and their home-learning book returned fortnightly to be marked (first return date to be the 24th September).

Our assemblies will continue to be separate this year. Year 2 Yellow’s Assembly is on26tth September, Year 2 Blue’s Assembly is on10th October - as usual you will be welcome to join us in the school hall from 9:10. Your child will be going to a class Mass onthe 8th November. Year 2 children will organise the Mass and read. You will be welcome to join us from 9:30 at The Holy Family Church.

We hope you are looking forward to starting a new term as much as we are, please check class Dojo for updates and more information and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any other questions.

Kind Regards,

Miss Curson and Miss Jackman
