WELCOME TO THE Y2 ROCKETS CLASS
Our class is taught by myself Monday-Thursday lunchtime, and then Mr Evans for the rest of the week. Mrs Rayson is our fabulous, full time teaching assistant and will normally be ready to welcome your children in each morning. Life in Year 2 is very busy and exciting and we look forward to working together with you this year. If you ever have any problems or concerns, please catch one of our team - the end of the day is better. Keep checking back on our page for important updates, or to see what exciting things we have been doing in class. Many thanks, Mrs A Roberts School starts at 8:50am and the register is taken at 8:55am. Mrs Rayson will child into school from the Year 2 cloakroom door. School finishes at 3:30pm and you may pick your child up from the Year 2 classroom, unless they are going to after school club.
We send spellings home on Friday afternoons, these will be tested the following Friday. It is important to go through these with your child and practise a few each night. We always encourage children to aim for GREEN on their tests and to use the spellings correctly in their writing. In addition to spellings and daily reading, your child will also bring home timetables facts or similar to learn for a test the following Friday.
Learning to read fluently is one of the most important things your child will ever do,
and being a great reader will open so many doors to them as they grow into young
adults. We cannot emphasise how important it is to read with your child daily and
discuss the text. Please sign your child’s reading diary indicating the book has been
read and make a comment on their reading – we check these twice a week and hope to
create a really positive partnership between home and school where a love of reading is
fostered and encouraged.
Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school. Our PE lessons will be on Monday
mornings and Friday afternoons this year, although these times are sometimes subject
to change at short notice. Children wearing earrings in school on these days must have
them removed, or they may not be able to take part. Long hair must be tied up every
day, but especially on PE days. It is also worth checking each half term that pumps still
fit – we do use our lovely outdoor area a lot, even in the winter.
Other useful information
Please ensure all your child’s clothing is clearly labelled as things can easily get
misplaced. Your child will need a warm, waterproof coat and sensible shoes. Please
ensure your child has a named water bottle as we encourage children to keep hydrated
throughout the day. Fresh fruit is provided for all KS1 children during morning and
afternoon break and milk can be ordered directly from Cool Milk at www.coolmilk.com.
We thank-you for your continued support and are looking forward to making sure this year is a happy, enjoyable and successful year for your child.

We have been having lots of fun finding out about penguins ready to write our Non-Chronological reports in the New Year. We would love you to find out more facts at home if you can.
