Welcome to Year 2
It is so good to be back in school. I am Mrs Radcliffe. I have been a teacher for 20 years and taught at Marlfields for nine years. Since starting my career I have taught all primary year groups and really enjoy watching the children take off with their learning and grow more and
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. During the Autumn term your child will have a reading book for a week which will be the focus of their reading group’s session. These need to be in school daily. Pupils also 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.
All pupils will be given homework on Monday each week . We expect Reading everyday and some handwriting, spelling and some Maths tasks. Spellings will be checked on Monday and new spellings issued.
PE is taught twice throughout the week.
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.
