Class 2


CLASS 2 PE lessons - Friday 27th November, Friday 4th December, Thursday 10th December and Tuesday 15th December 2020

Hello Class 2 and welcome back into school!  Miss Hartley and Mrs Shaw are ready for a busy half term and we are looking forward to working with you all.  Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on the basic skills of reading, writing and maths, which will include lots of phonics, handwriting and the correct letter formation, and counting.  

Reading books will be sent home in the next couple of days.  Please read daily with your child, even a few pages read regularly makes a huge difference.  We will change reading books each Monday and Thursday, and will do our best to ensure your child has enough books for each night until they are changed.  Please record the date, title, pages read and any comments in the Reading Record each time your child reads.  

Thank you for your continued support.
