Towers,Tunnels and Turrets
Welcome back as Year 2 children! I am really looking forward to teaching your children. This year I will be joined by Mrs White, who some children will know from last year. I will be her Mentor as she completes her Teacher Training this year. Mrs Butler will be assisting in class also.
We have already had an amazing start to our Topic- Towers, Tunnels and Turrets, by visiting Windsor Castle last week. Photos will be on the school web site. It gave the children real inspiration for our learning. Please continue to settle payments as soon as possible if not paid already.
We are continuing with Read, Write Inc Phonics, spellings and reading daily. This year there will be a huge focus on reading and also reading comprehension. RWI covers all of this, but we will still read with some children individually. Please continue to read and share books at home with your child. They will be awarded a house point if they read with you three times and you sign their book each time. We now have fabulous new reading record books to help encourage reading regularly.
PE will now be taught twice weekly, with Mr Graham on Monday each week and Mrs White and me on Fridays. Please ensure your child has kit in school, including trainers and jogging bottoms, jumpers etc as the weather gets colder. We will be taking the children outside whenever possible. It is part of the curriculum and the children will take part unless we have requests from parents not to.
Finally, fruit is still provided for children each morning, but you can supply a healthy option if you wish. Please ensure your child brings their bottle in daily as we are not able to supply hygienic cups in large quantities for drinks. Water only please in bottles.
I am sure we are going to have an amazing year!
Mrs Moody and Mrs White
