Year 2

A very warm welcome to Year 2.    I am so pleased to be here as the new Class Teacher and I am excited for our year ahead!    The expectations in Year 2 are high and I will do my utmost to help support your child where needed.  Support from parents is really important and I would remind you that:-


-  your child should be reading daily

-  reading books will be changed once a week on a Wednesday

-  spellings will be sent home on a Monday

-  PE days are Monday (outdoor) and Wednesday (indoor) - children to arrive in full PE kit


Kindest regards

Mrs Marwick

Class Routines


Your child's spelling books contain the words the children need to learn but it is also where they will do their spelling test, so please ensure the books come back into school every Thursday. These will be marked and sent home on a Monday.



Children are expected to read every night. Please record this in the children's reading records so this can be checked by a Year 2 adult. Reading books are changed once a week; currently on a Monday. Please note, they will only be changed if it has been written in their reading record that they have read the books. 


Our PE days this year are Monday (outdoor) and Wednesday (indoor). Your children will need to come to school in their school PE kit on these days and they must come prepared for all weather. Please label all clothes and shoes.


If you have any questions or concerns at any point please give the school office a call and I will return your call as soon as possible. I believe a big part of your child's success is a result of strong school-home links and communication.
