Year 2 2021 - 2022
Welcome to the Year 2 Homepage
Here you will find everything you need to know about what Year 2 are getting up to in school.
Please check our page regularly for important news, updates and photographs.
This year, our Year 2 Team is Miss Jones (Monday-Thursday) and Miss Anders (Friday).
Mrs Hilsden will also be supporting Year 2 throughout the week.
Updates - Autumn Term 1
The Year 2 team are all extremely proud of how well the children have settled into the new routines and expectations in Year 2. Our classroom is always filled with excitment, enthusiasm and such wonderful manners.
The children have all received a new reading record and reading book. Please do not worry if it is one they have already had in Year 1. Rereading books is crucial for consolidating blending and recapping the phonics sounds they have already learnt. Children have also been given a bookmark with a list of words to practise recognising and reading by sight. These are differentiated to suit individual children and the aim is to learn all words on the list by the end of each half term. A new list will be given each half term.
Spellings will be sent home this Friday to be learnt for our first spelling test on Friday 24th September. Again, these are differentiated so please do not share spellings with other families.

The Year 2 class teachers are Miss Jones (Monday - Thursday) and Miss Anders (Friday).

Hot Dinners and Snack
Please ensure hot dinner choices are completed using the online system by Sunday Evening. Alternatively, children can bring in their own packed lunch (nut free) if they wish to do so. Children should be able to access the items in their lunchboxes themselves - opening packaging, small tubs etc.
Children in Year 2 are provided with free fruit each day. The type of fruit varies each day and we do not know ahead of time what will be provided. Your child is welcome to bring in a piece of fruit from home if they would prefer. Children also have the opportunity to have a piece of toast instead of fruit. The cost of this is 25p per day (£1.25 per week).
Please encourge your child to hand in their snack money on Mondays. Please send the correct money into school with your child on a Monday morning in a clearly labelled envelope. No change can be given. Alternatively, children can bring their own snack of a piece of fruit or healthy snack. Again, children should be able to access this independently.
Children should to bring their full water bottles in daily. We are a healthy school please fill water bottles with water only.
If your children needs to take medication during the school day, please complete a form at the school office. Medication sent into school should be clearly labelled with the pupils name, dosage and storage requirements. Medication must be given to a member of staff by the adult responsible for the child. If your child needs an inhaler or epipen in school, please ensure this is sent into school and again handed over to the class teacher. Please make a note of the expiry date before sending into school and ensure that a replacement is sent into school in advance of the expiry date.
PE this half term will be on a Thursday and Friday so the children will need to come to school dressed in their PE kits (joggers and leggings can be worn along with a pair of trainers). Hair must be tied back and all jewellery removed for PE lessons.
