Welcome to Year 2

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you are all rested after a lovely Christmas. Thank you so much for your generous gifts, cards and well-wishes during the Christmas period. This newsletter will show you what your child will be learning this Spring Term. Please continue to sign your child’s reading records and practise their maths booklet or log onto Numbots or TTRS. All of your support is hugely appreciated and as always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 


P.E will be on Wednesdays (indoor) and Fridays (outdoors).  Please come dressed in your P.E kit on those days. We are going to have an amazing term!  Miss Yau. ☺ 

Our teacher is Miss Yau and our teaching assistant is Mrs Forshaw.


Take a look at you little cuties! Each time you visit the page the pictures will change!...
