Welcome to Year 2
Hello! Welcome to your new class page. I hope you have had a wonderful summer holiday making lots of fantastic memories with your families. We cannot wait to welcome you into Year 2 and hope that you are as excited to return to school in September as us. Please read through this page where hopefully we can answer some of your questions about the exciting world of Year 2!
Who will your teachers be?
Miss Carey- I am very excited to be teaching you all this year and I cannot wait for all the exciting adventures this year holds for us as a class!
Mrs Brandrick- We are so lucky to have Mrs Brandrick as our brilliant teaching assistant and Elma’s Dog Mentor!
Mrs Sterling- You will have the wonderful Mrs Nixon if I am away on a course, who will be delivering lots of exciting lessons for you!
Year 2 is going to be your chance to really shine as members of Key Stage One. We are so excited to welcome you back to school. We are going to work very hard but also have lots of fun along the way. We will be here to help, support and guide you with all of your learning, but we are also going to help you to become more independent learners in preparation for Key Stage Two. It would really help your adults at home a lot if you remembered your own book bags, PE/swimming kits, reading books, and reading diaries. Reading books and reading diaries need to be in school . Remember to ask an adult to sign your reading diary when you have read at home and remember to complete all of your homework and bring it in to school on the correct day. We can’t wait to continue your learning journey with you.
This year, we will continue to use Dojos- each of you have a little monster character and you will earn points from teachers for all the good and kind things you do around school. There are lots of opportunities to earn Dojos- for being kind, helpful, working hard, showing, and sharing your Gospel Values, being resilient, persevering even when things are tricky, participating in learning, completing homework, using your manners and lots more. So, make sure you are always doing your best to shine out and be the best you can be!
As usual, we will be having Golden Time on a Friday, so if you make the wrong behaviour choices then you will be given minutes off that time. I hope that I will be rewarding your behaviour with Dojos rather than using minutes!
