Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to our Year 2 page!
In Oak class our teacher is Mrs Pilborough.
In Sycamore class our teacher is Miss Holt.
Miss Moskwa, Mrs Tilley, Mrs Axten and Mrs Kane also work closely with the children in Year 2.
Please see our Autumn Term 2023 page to see our learning during Autumn term.
Oak P.E. days are Tuesday and Thursday.
Sycamore P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please ensure your child has their full, named P.E. kit in school and earrings are removed before coming to school on P.E. days.
Oak forest school sessions are Wednesday afternoon
Sycamore forest school sessions are Tuesday afternoon.
Your child will be expected to wear usual school uniform on the top half but for the bottoms please ensure your child wears grey or black leggings or trousers (plain - no logo and no shorts/skirts) which are ok to get dirty/wet etc. Please can the children also bring wellies in a bag for them to change into.We aim to go out in all weathers so if it forecast to be wet, please provide appropriate clothing.
Homework is due in every Monday. We then aim to send the next homework out on the following day (Tuesday). We choose our homework tasks carefully and ensure it is recapping on previous learning. Therefore, your child should be able to complete the homework mainly independently. If they are struggling, please write a note on the homework to let us know so that we can work with the child in school.
Reading is the most valuable skill for your child to learn. We expect your child to read at least three times a week, if possible. Please just initial the reading log inside the cover of the homework book to show they've read at home.
We understand the importance of communication between parent and teacher. Please feel free to comment in the homework book on the next page available which we will look at every Monday when we take in and mark homework.
We continue to use Tapestry as a form of communication for parents. It is a secure online platform which allows us to send messages to individual parents or whole classes/cohorts. All information held in the platform is stored securely, and can be downloaded and shared as required. Parents are able to view posts which the teachers have uploaded, whilst also uploading their own comments and media. In Year 2, children record their learning primarily in their work books and so you will not see as many pictures of their learning on Tapestry as you perhaps did in reception and year 1. However, please continue to log on to Tapestry regularly as we use it as our main form of communication for parents; giving important updates, reminders and newsletters as well as information about other things that have been happening in year 2. Please contact school if you need any support accessing Tapestry.
Please see our home learning page for more information.
