Welcome to the class page for Year 2. Your child's teachers are Mrs Glover in the mornings and Mrs Waine in the afternoons. We are both experienced teachers and have taught in year two for several years. This year we are assisted in the classroom by Mrs Lee, Miss Hooper, Mrs Bimson and Mrs McKinley, our lovely teaching assistants. We all pride ourselves on being kind, gentle and nurturing with the children and are always approachable should you wish to speak to us. Our class has a friendly and family atmosphere, we look after your child and help them to thrive academically and socially. We like to see smiling, happy children coming into school in the morning, with lots to talk about at home time!
PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure PE kits (pumps, shorts and house coloured t shirt) are in school. Mrs Waine will advise when trainers and tracksuits are appropriate.
Homework (maths and spelling) will be given out on Monday and should be returned for marking, on or before the following Monday. Children will have spellings to learn for a test on Monday morning. Mrs Waine may occasionally ask the children to complete a small learning task related to topic work. she will let you know of this via class Dojo.
Book Bag Please use your child's book bag to send in their reading book and reading record each day. It would also be helpful if you could check your child's bag for any letters sent home from school.
Year 2 met with a team of qualified coaches who visited school to deliver a fun based cycle and run session.
Trikidz host a free, mass participation event for school children to attend. Year 2 all cycled and ran around the track, they had a fantastic time.
Our First Week.
During our first week in year 2 we have been very busy, we have been learning new skills in Maths. In English we have been looking at The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark. In RE we are looking at the Bible as a special book and in Geography and ICT we are looking at our local maps and finding our houses using Digimaps. This is just a small part of our daily lives at All Saints, we also play outside, read, do the daily mile, have our milk and snack, eat out lunch together and many other activities, so it's no wonder your child may be tired at the end of the day. Below is a snapshot of our first, very hot week.
