    Where learning is fun!

    I would like to wish you a warm welcome to Year 2!  

    I look forward to working alongside you this year in providing the best opportunities for your children to succeed and be the best they can be. Our classroom is a fun, engaging and a happy place to be!

    General Reminders

    A jumper and coat in school daily

    Water bottle daily

    Book bag daily

    Reading diary daily and reading book even if it hasn’t been finished.

    Please label all clothing 

    Reading

    We ask that you try to read with your child every night, even if it’s just for 5 minutes. To help your children be the best they can be please ask as many questions and talk about the books that your child is reading as much as possible as this will have huge impact on their understanding. Your child will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week in school. 

    PE

    P.E is taught for two hours each week. The children will practise many skills such as throwing, catching, balancing and coordination. To help you to know what your child will need to wear on PE days, please see the list below.

    Trainers or pumps

    White P.E Top (ideally with the Sound Logo)

    Black P.E Shorts

    Long tracksuit bottoms and top in the colder months

    Extra pair of trainers (for field)

    Please wear either a school jumper or school hoodie (if you have chosen to buy one) on top.

    PE kits are to be worn into school on PE days (currently a Tuesday & Wednesday). Children will remain in their PE kits all day so they do not need to bring a change of clothes.


    Book Bags

    Please make sure children bring their book bags into school each day. You may personalise the book bag with one key ring so children can easily identify their bag.

    Additional school bags and pencil cases are not needed. We provide all stationery at school.

    We like to ask that toys are kept at home as we do not want to risk them getting lost.

    Special items and photos are always welcome in school as we love to do show and tell sessions with the children. 

     

    Volunteers:

    At Sound School, we always welcome volunteers to come and read with the children, work alongside the class or even volunteer for clubs or special activities. If this is of interest to you, don’t hesitate to speak to the office or the class teacher and they will point you in the right direction.

     

    As always, if you have any questions, no matter how small, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 2 team through appointment at the office!

    Thank you all for your support and we look forward to a successful year in Ruby Class!
