Welcome back everyone! We hope you have had an enjoyable and restful summer and are looking forward to being in Year 2! We are excited as we have a trip early on in the term to introduce our new topic ‘Farm to Fork’.
We have a new ‘wish list tree’ on display in the 2T window. On this wish list we will put resources etc on that we are looking for and would absolutely LOVE your help! There will be things on there that we would love to help and support with our learning in class. Please take a look and see if you can help us out. These will change regularly, and the leaves will be taken down when we have received them. THANK YOU!
Spellings – Spellings will continue to be weekly and will be tested on a Friday.
Reading books – Reading is crucial in Year 2 and we do expect children to read every night at home. They do not have to necessarily read their whole book, but must read. Please do sign the diary so we know whether your child has read or not.
PE days – Tues PM and Weds AM.
Dates for the diary:
Trip – Hatton Farm – Thursday 12th September (Your child will need to bring a healthy packed lunch and a drink in a disposable bag). They will need to wear suitable clothing for walking around a farm (e.g tracksuit bottoms, waterproofs and waterproof coat, wellies/ trainers).
Zone board and Weekly Certificates
In year 2 the children will continue ‘Pupil of the week’ where someone will be chosen from each class and have lunch with Mrs Woods on a Friday.
We will still be continuing the ‘Over the Rainbow’ certificates for those who have exceeded with their WORK alone.
New into Year 2, is our behavior chart ‘Zone board’. We will be using a daily reward chart for behavior only where children start the day in green and have the opportunity to move up the zone for good behavior into silver and gold. If the children end the day on silver they will receive a sticker to come home, if they end it in gold, they receive a raffle ticket which will be put in a box. At the end of each week, a ticket (or two) will be drawn to win a prize from the prize box! You have to be in it to win it!
