From Miss Dawson and Mrs Hartley
We are a Year 2 class of 30 children, taught by Miss Dawson and supported by Mrs Hartley.
Our PE lessons are on Tuesday and Thursday this half term so please make sure we have named PE kits in school and that we are not wearing earrings on this day.
Homework and Spellings
Homework is given out on a Friday and must be kept at home (for now). Please complete the homework sheets as these give additional practise for current learning in class. Work includes a piece of English and Maths work and is linked to what we have been learning about that week.
Homework is also being added onto the seesaw app.
We also have spellings each Friday to learn for a test the following Thursday.
We really like reading so we ask our grown ups to listen to us read and comment in our reading diaries so that we can get our book changed - just a small comment and a signature is fine! At present, books are given out on a Monday and returned to school to quarantine each Thursday!
Tuesday 3rd November - Back to school
Friday 18th December - Finish School
What have the Owls been up to?
Keep checking as photos will be added throughout the year!
