Welcome to Class 2
It is so good to be back in school. I am Miss Carr.I have been teaching for over 30 years and have been at Marlfields Primary for quite a long time. I have taught in every year group including Nursery so I’m really excited to be back in Year 2.
I love Science and Reading but Art is my favourite subject and I love making things.
I am sure this year will be action-packed and we have lots of fun things planned.
I look forward to working with you all.
Please read regularly with your child to support their learning. As pupils choose books independently during Year 2, encourage your child to choose a book they can read confidently and are interested. If they have a book they are not enjoying they will be able to change it during the next school day. At the moment you can also access online reading books from sites such as Collins Connect- these are really useful and link to the work we do in school.
All pupils will have each week and instructions for the set tasks will be given. We expect Reading at least 3 times a week, IDL, Weekly Spellings and My Maths-tasks will be featured regularly. Spellings will be checked on Mondays and new spellings issued. Reading/ Homework packs need to be in school every day.
PE is taught on Tuesday and Wednesdays and we will be playing games that ensure that we keep social distancing rules . All children will need:
A red t-shirt
Trainers and Tracksuit for outdoor PE
Please could you check that all jumpers, coats and PE kits are named. This should minimise lost property.
As always please come and see me if you have any further questions about your child in school.
Keep an eye out for your termly ‘Parents as Partners’ Leaflet to give you a better idea of the exciting things we have planned this year.
I would also like to remind you to sign up to Class Dojo so that you can be informed of your child’s hard work and reward points. This year we are encouraging children to build up their Dojo Points to purchase things from the Class Dojo Shop. Log on and password information is recorded in your child’s planner but should be the same as last year. Your child is already in a school house team and we will continue to give House Points to children to support their confidence and to build the feeling of being part of a wider community.
We continue to use ‘Good to be Green’ to support our behaviour in school. Watch out for postcrds and certificates to show that your child is behaving well in school.
