Welcome to Class 2
It is so good to be back in school. I am Mrs Radcliffe. I have taught for 20 years in both KS1 and KS2. I have taught Year 2 at Marlfields for 5 years and really enjoy watching the children take off with their learning and grow more and more independent.
I love being creative and encourage the children I teach to be inquisitive and take an interest in the world around them. There are never too many questions to ask !
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. Pupils will also have access to our Collins Ebook Library- details will be sent home.
All pupils will be given homework each week . We expect Reading everyday and some handwriting, spelling and some Maths tasks. Spellings will be checked on Mondays and new spellings issued.
PE is taught on Tuesday and Thursdays.
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.
Please note for 3 weeks we will have on site swimming lessons daily. Swim wear must be brought into school for this.
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. We continue to use ‘Good to be Green’ to support our behaviour in school. Watch out for postcards and certificates to show that your child is behaving well in school.
