Welcome to Year 2
We hope you have had a fantastic summer and would like to welcome you to Year 2!
Having had the opportunity to settle into our new classroom routines, I’d like to introduce myself and the amazing team who will be working In Apple Class (Year 2) this academic year;
Miss Bromberger (class teacher), Miss Godwin (TA Monday, Tuesday, Fridays), Mrs Spence (focus provision TA), Miss Hopton (TA Wednesdays and Thursdays) and occasionally Miss Carlyle. Please do not hesitate to come and see any of us should you have any queries.
Our topic this term is ‘Explorers!’ which will incorporate digging deeper into the lives of some famous historical explorers. We will be planning a top secret expedition where we will create our very own maps, as well as attending an exciting workshop lead by Access Artefacts. To tie into our Science objectives, we will be investigating the best materials to make a space suit and ship to take on the high seas!
It is important that we all come prepare for school: wearing correct school uniform, bringing reading folders, reading diaries and books every day. PE will take place every Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that children have their PE kits in school from Monday through till Friday, as PE sessions may take place during none scheduled days.
I would also like to take this opportunity to reinforce the importance of children reading for at least 20 minutes every evening. Reading is vital for your child’s success and it helps enormously in their writing. Either myself or another adult in the class will be reading with your child weekly and we will be rewarding those children who read five or more times a week at home every half term. Don’t forget to log onto TT Rock Stars. A fun way of learning your times tables! Please click the link in the sidebar to access the website, there is also a free app available to download.
This is a time for us to meet fresh challenges, try new things and learn from any mistakes we make. We aim to create curious, resilient and independent learners. It’s going to be an exciting term!
