Welcome to Year 2

We have had an excellent first week in Year 2.  The children have settled in well and have already impressed us with their behaviour and readiness for learning.

Thanks to all the parents who came along to the meeting on Thursday, it was good to meet you.  For those of you unable to attend there is a copy of the welcome information attached or please see the class teacher for a paper copy.

All children have now got levelled reading books and a homework book.  A homework grid and spellings for the term are stuck in the front of the book.  There is also a homework grid attached to this post in case you need another copy.

We are fortunate to have Mrs Pagett as our year group teaching assistant and also Miss Morris as our apprentice TA.

We’re looking forward to getting to know you all over the next few weeks.
