Year 2 Letters Home


Dear Parents,


Welcome to year 2! We are very excited to get to know you and your children and experience lots of lovely learning together.

This year our team consists of: Mrs Norwood and Miss Curson (year 2 Yellow teachers), Miss Jackman (year 2 Blue teacher), Mrs Myers, Miss Fairless, Mrs Loosley, Miss Calton and Miss Holmes (Learning Support Assistants).

(Due to an allergy, can we please ask that NO balloons or latex items are brought into year 2 blue throughout the year.)

This term we will be looking at the world around us. Our focus primarily will be on the children’s wellbeing and the changes we are facing during the situation we are in. This will be taught alongside recapping any areas missed in year 1 and linked to God’s creation in RE, Animals and us in science and learning all about our local area in geography.

Our PE days are on Monday and Friday for year 2 yellow and Monday and Wednesday for year 2 blue; please ensure your child arrives at school in their PE kits for those days and NO PE bags are brought into school.

Home Learning – Children will bring home a home learning book and a takeaway menu of activities to complete over the Autumn term in their first week. Due to guidance, we are unable to accept any home learning brought back into school but please send any pictures of work you have completed to the Class Dojo or email and we will provide feedback.

Year 2 yellow and blue will have weekly guided reading sessions on a Monday and will bring a guided reading book home to keep until the Friday. Please return the book on the Friday to allow for cleaning regulations to take place.

Whilst we appreciate things may be a little different to what the children are used to, we are hoping you are looking forward to starting the new term as much as we are and getting back to a new normality. Please check the website, Class Dojo and the School Jigsaw App for any changes, updates and more information about what is happening in year 2 and do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any other questions.

Kind Regards,


Mrs Norwood, Miss Curson and Miss Jackman
