Welcome to Swifts Class where teachers are Mrs Martin and Miss Long (Tuesday morning). Mrs Newman is our Teaching Assistant.
In Year 2, children come into class independently in the mornings and learn to become more responsible in their learning and in looking after themselves and their belongings.
We have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned through our topics such as the Great Fire of London, Native Americans and Inventors and Inventions.
Swifts’ teachers are particularly passionate about English and Maths. They have chosen lots of lovely books for us to enjoy as part of our topics. Mrs Martin is our school Maths lead and we have very exciting Maths lessons with lots of equipment and opportunities to explore and problems to solve. Mrs Martin particularly loves Music and Languages and Miss Long loves her work on PSHE.
Things to remember:
- Homework: In term 1, our main aim is to ensure that every child completes their reading homework. Children must read at least five times a week at home and reading journals should be signed by an adult and brought into school on Mondays. Reading books can be changed at any time. We will begin to send home spelling homework during term 1 and Maths homework from term 2.
- PE will be on Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons but PE kit should be in school all week, including warmer kit when we go outdoors in colder weather.
- Our Year Group information booklets set out in more detail our expectations.
We are always looking for parents and carers to support us by volunteering to read in school, help out on projects or offer support in their areas of expertise. Please do talk to a member of staff if you have any time to spare.
We look forward to a wonderful Year 2 and please don't hesitate to ask if you have any queries.
