Pupils  »  Class Pages  »  Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 class page!

We are an amazing class who are taught by Mrs Cargill, Mrs Leonard and Mrs Harrington.

We are very excited about all our new learning.

Keep checking on Twitter and our class page to see what we have been doing.

Spellings
Every week, on a Thursday, the children will bring home a new set of spellings. Please practise these for a spelling test the following week. Please also continue to practise the common exception words on the lists that have been sent home.

Reading
The children change their books every Tuesday and may also change them again during the week, if they have completed and read the books confidently. We would advise for you to read with your child daily which we will reward at school with stickers on their bookmarks!

P.E
Our P.E lessons are on Thursday and Friday. Please include trainers for our outdoor sessions.

Please see me if you have any questions or queries.

Thank you 
Mrs Cargill
Our Class Mission Statement

Mental Health

Here is some information for you to help look after your child's mental health. The illustrator of the popular children’s book The Gruffalo, Axel Scheffler, has helped to release a free digital picture book to help children understand the coronavirus pandemic. I have attached a digital version to share with the children.

Home schooling Ideas

Just a few activities to maybe use over the Easter holidays.

Learn Spanish from home!
Rosetta Stone are giving free access to their langauge courses for three months.
Why not learn Spanish alongside your children?

I really love this! I know you can't do all of these activities now but you can do some and save the rest for another time!
