Croeso i Ddosbarth 2 - Welcome to Year 2
Hello and welcome!
Hello Year 2,
We hope you had a fantastic Summer. We are very much looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and into some kind of routine, especially after the Spring and Summer Terms that we all experienced.
Our topic for the Autumn Term is ‘Busy Bookworms’. We will focusing on a range of text types (poetry, fairy tales, information books, stories…) written by authors such as Jill Tomlinson, Dick King-Smith, Roald Dahl, Elli Woollard and Oscar Wilde. Our maths sessions will concentrate on number work such as place value, ordering numbers and number sequences.
The first few weeks will be a busy time settling into Year 2 and getting to know all the new routines. We will be spending some time assessing the children across the curriculum so we know exactly where each child is in order for us to support them in their learning. More information will follow on the new Year 2 routine for home reading and homework in the next week or so.
Below are a few notices for Year 2. May we take this opportunity to thank you in anticipation of your support in these matters.
Mrs Rhodes, Miss Tingay and Mrs Smale
Year 2 Notices...
The Year 2 weekly P.E session with Mr Howells is on a Wednesday. The children will need to come into school on a Wednesday in their full P.E kit with a jumper and trainers. They will not be able to get changed in school. As the P.E lesson will be outside a rain coat will also be needed and an extra bottle of water (clearly labelled with your child’s name) would also be a good idea.
Your child will need to bring a labelled water bottle in to school DAILY. We will be sending home these bottles each evening to be washed at home, refilled and then returned to school the following day. If your child does drink a lot during the day, please feel free to send your child in with two bottles.
Lunch Boxes and Bags
Please do not send your child into school with a bag, just a lunchbox if required. Thank you!
As your child will be spending lots of time outside they will need suitable footwear and a coat each day.
