Year 2B

Welcome back to school, 2B!

 

We hope you have all had a lovely Summer holiday. We are looking forward to welcoming you all to Year 2.

The staff in 2B are Mrs Bloor, Mrs Wain and Mrs Doorbar.

 

PHONICS:

As you will be aware, your child would have undertaken the Phonics Screening Check when they were in year 1 in June. However due to COVID 19 this did not happen.

Following government guidelines the test will now be carried out in Year 2. This will be administered in the second part of the Autumn Term in the week beginning the 29th November. Therefore, where possible (we understand that currently attendance relating to COVID 19 is out of all of our controls) it is important that your child is in school during this week.

Our topic for this term is - Where do Owls live?

Owl facts. Learn how they eat with no teeth. Weiler Woods for Wildlife

 

We will also be looking at the following books:

Troll Swap by Leigh Hodgkinson 

Trendy Tuesday: Troll Swap | Neely's News

Trolls go home by Alan McDonald

Trolls, Go Home! by Alan MacDonald

The Troll by Julia Donaldson

The Troll : Donaldson, Julia, Roberts, David: Amazon.co.uk: Books

The Owl who was afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson, Paul Howard |  Waterstones

Water Bottles

Your child has been given a school new school water bottle. Please can you wash and refill (water only) this ready for each new day.

 

PE

Our PE days are a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please send your child to school in full PE kit (house colour shirt and shorts with trainers)

 

Reading books & bookbags

Thank you for your continued support.

Coats

Please ensure your child brings a coat to school each day. We had a rainy start to the term but we are trying as much as possible to allow the children their outdoor breaks which may mean us putting coats on to go out in the rain as much as possible without getting too wet. Please ensure all coats are clearly named.

Water Bottles

All children have been given a school water bottle. This needs to be brought to school each day having been washed and re filled with fresh water from home. Children will be reminded at the end of the day to bring home their lunch bag and water bottle to be washed ready for the next day. We have turned off our water filter system so children will not be able to fill up their water bottle in the usual way. All classes have access to drinking water throughout the day should the children require extra water.

PE

Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. On these days we ask that your child comes to school in their PE clothes rather than their school uniform.


Weather dependant they can wear their shorts and school coloured PE T- shirt and school jumper. If the weather is cold, then track suit bottoms/leggings would be more suitable. Trainers are preferable to pumps as it is possible the children may be outdoors for some lessons.
