I am really looking forward to getting to know the amazing children in my class this year. We will be very busy getting ready for KS1 SATs, but we will be having lots of fun along the way, I hope.
We will keep you updated with what we are doing on Class Dojo, so if you haven't joined yet, please do. It would be lovely for you to share pictures of activities the children have done at home on there too. Also, look out for us on Twitter and Instagram.
Reading will be huge focus for the whole school this year, so please try to read with your child as often as you can. This can include their school reading books, but also books of the children's own choice. Reading your child a bedtime story is also a great way to end the day. Research shows that children who read at home and are read to by adults at home go on to do significantly better in all areas of life - it really is so important.
Year 2 homework will be project-based and given out each half term, along with weekly spellings.
PE is every Thursday, so please ensure your child has a PE kit in school.
Please feel free to speak to me at any time if you have any questions or concerns. Here's to a great year!
