Welcome back to school! We are looking forward to working with you and your child this year. Here is some useful information:
Both classes will have an indoor and outdoor P.E. session each week and these sessions will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure that your child’s correct P.E. kit is in school at all times and that it is clearly labelled with your child’s name!
Your child will be given two reading books per week to take home. It is very important for your child’s progress that you find the time to share these books with them and talk to them about what they have read. Please remember to record the reading that you have shared with your child in the new ‘Home-School Contact Book’. These books work in exactly the same way as our previous blue Reading Records, allowing both parents and teachers to comment on your child’s reading progress each time a book is shared.
If your child suffers from either of these, please let the class teacher know.
We encourage children to drink water regularly throughout the day. Please ensure that your child’s drink bottle is clearly labelled.
We believe that it is very important to establish good communication between home and school and will do our very best to keep you up to date with what is going on in school. There will be a parent’s evening before half term to discuss the progress of your children as well as a ‘New to Year 2’ evening.
If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to contact your child’s class teacher and we will do our best to help.
Thank you for your co-operation,
Mr Mooney (2BM) and Miss Brannigan (2CB).
