Welcome to Year 2!
We hope that you all had a lovely summer and that all the children are looking forward to returning to school. In Year 2, every child, every day will be given every chance to learn; we do everything we can to ensure all children can achieve. We want to make this year a fun and exciting one for your children, their last year in KS1. It is important that as a team we work together to develop your child’s emotional health and well-being. We would like all children to come into school, happy and content and if there are any issues we are happy to discuss these with you.
Year 2’s themes are: Fire Fire (Autumn term), Dungeons and Dragons (Spring term) and Planes, Trains and Automobiles (Summer term). We have lots of fun, exciting and interesting activities planned throughout the year. We are hoping to take the children to visit a castle and to the airport to help support the children’s understanding for of their themes. We know that the children love the outdoors, so some of their learning will be in forest school. The children will also be learning about healthy eating and they will all have the opportunity to make and eat some healthy food.
We would like to keep you updated on different events that will be happening throughout the year so we will communicate via the newsletter, Marvellous Me, Seesaw and Twitter. Each week we will upload spellings and times tables onto Seesaw, we would like every child to try and complete and there will be a spelling test every Friday. We would like all children to ready daily at home with an adult (or older sibling), the children will all bring home a reading book and a reading record book which we would like you to sign once the children have read and return to school daily. Every child has a TT Rockstars log-in, we would love the children to practise their times tables regularly to ensure fluency and accuracy.
We understand that moving up to Key Stage 2 is a big step for many children so throughout the year we will be helping develop their independence and resilience to ensure that there is a smooth transition to Year 3.
The Year 2 team for 2021-2022 are:

2FP - Mrs Frankeiss and Mrs Parsons
2R - Mrs Rubidge
Whilst we are social distancing, if you have any questions, please speak to a member of the Senior Leadership Team who will be available on the playground and the gates each morning. They will pass any messages on. The Year 2 team will then get back to you via email or a phone call. You can also contact us via Seesaw.
Please bring PE kits in on a Monday and take home on a Friday. PE kit needs to be: white top, black bottoms / shorts, black jacket / jumper and trainers. Long hair must be tied back. This term most PE sessions will be outside so children may need warm clothing.
