Year 2 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Year 2!
I hope you have all had a wonderfully relaxing summer holiday and are well rested and ready to jump into this new year! I am very excited to be starting in a new year group and can’t wait for all the adventures we will share together this year!
We are very lucky to be supported by Mrs Richards who works with us most mornings and Miss Forster who delivers 1:1 support. On Friday afternoons, Mrs Williams will lead our learning in PE.
Reading is a vital skill for progressing your child’s learning. We change our books each week so please ensure your child has their books and diaries in school each day as guided and individual reading sessions occur throughout the week. If your child reads their chosen books before we come to change them, please encourage them to re-read these for further understanding and increased fluency or alternatively select books from Frodsham Library to extend their reading across different genres. It is more important that the children fully comprehend what they are reading as well as being able to make inferences from the text rather than race through the coloured levels. However most important of all is that they are enjoying their reading and successfully accessing a wide range of material.
English/phonics and maths homework will be given out weekly on a Friday. Occasionally, this will consist of some online activities. Any log ins we are required to access certain sites will be stuck in the children’s homework books. Sometimes creative homework will be given in place of one of these. Homework is due in on the following Wednesday (with an additional week allowed for creative homework).
PE takes place on a Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school. PE kit should include appropriate footwear (pumps for indoor activities and trainers for outdoor activities), a jumper (weather dependent) and, for girls, spare socks if they tend to wear tights. Long hair should always be tied back but this is especially important for PE and earrings must be removed. If your child cannot do this independently, please ensure this is done before school.
Children learn best when they are well hydrated, so please could you ensure your child has a named water bottle in school every day. They will have opportunities to refill these at the water fountain throughout the day.
It is always a pleasure to hear what the children are up to at home and especially what they are achieving and are proud of through any out of school activities. Please encourage the children to share these events with us by bringing in their certificates and medals or creations. We will photograph these to put on our class wall and then send them back home with the children.
We hope to attend lots of exciting educational visits throughout the year to link in with our learning across the curriculum. One particular highlight is our residential trip to Foxhowl Centre in Delamere on the 6th and 7th of June 2023. This is a super opportunity for the children to explore the local forest and to spend time together, including an overnight stay. If you ask any of the children who have previously been they will all tell you just how much fun it is. It would be lovely to have all of this year’s class with us. Based on previous years, we approximate the cost to be around £80, but once final costs are confirmed, we will let you know when it is possible to start paying towards this using parent pay.
As ever, I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Due to the time constraints, we ask that only vital messages are passed on at the start and end of the day. You can always contact me via email or by telephoning the school office and we can arrange a mutually convenient time for a chat to discuss any other issues.
Here’s to a happy and productive year!
Best wishes, Miss Griffiths.
