Welcome to Woodpecker Class

A very warm welcome to our Y2 class, taught by both Mrs Spurway (Monday - Wednesday) and Mrs Baker (Thursday - Friday). The class is supported by Mrs Witcombe and Mrs Bagwell across the week. We hope to provide updates through the year so that you can see some of the things we have been learning as well as what is ahead!


In our first week back we have been getting to know each other, sharing holiday memories, revising our place value knowledge of 2 digit numbers and using the wonderful story of BEEGU to explore fiction. We have started to think about Friendship, our Christian Value for this term.


During this first half term,  all year 2 children will be visiting Frogmary Green Farm on Fridays. This gives the children a truly enjoyable and investigative approach to outside learning. PE will take place every Tuesday afternoon. A named PE kit needs to be kept in school.


We encourage each child to be as independent as possible, so they are able to easily find their own things and are able to get ready and feel secure with their learning. As always, reading fluency has a huge impact on each child's confidence. Please do continue to read with your child every day and talk about the book to help extend reading comprehension. In Year 2  we  will be working on spelling accuracy and consistent handwriting. Your child will bring home spellings as well a Maths home learning activity.


Forthcoming Date: Parents Curriculum Meeting on Friday 14th September at 9 a.m. in the Hall. We hope you will be able to attend this very informative session.


We really do appreciate your support and we look forward to lots of creative learning in the year ahead.
