Hello and welcome to Year 2!
My name is Miss Samuel and I will be your child’s class teacher this year. I am joined by Rabbi Herman, our Jewish Studies teacher; Miss Genn, our PPA teacher; Mrs Greene, our Ivrit teacher; Mrs Greenfield, our Music teacher as well as Mrs Sussman, Mrs Boyask and Mrs Woolf, our fantastic teaching assistants.
Children in Year 2 will continue to develop their learning through an integrated and creative curriculum, supporting them in becoming enthused and motivated learners. The children will continue to learn through our exciting IPC topics in which they will investigate, explore and discover as they engage in a variety of practical tasks.
There are weekly guided reading sessions where we will cover a variety of texts. Your child will also have reading books and the opportunity to change these twice a week. Please ensure that you sign and date your child’s reading record book each time you have read with them. We will also visit the school library once a week, where children are able to take a book home and either return or renew their book during the next session.
One of the displays just outside our Year 2 classroom showcases special pieces of work that children will have completed throughout the term showing effort, determination and excellence. This display is to inspire children to work hard and consistently. It is important that children are proud of their learning, and have the chance to display this for everyone to see. Children will have the opportunity to present their learning and progress in any area of the curriculum.
Please make sure that your child brings in the correct PE uniform with clearly named labels. Please be aware that plimsolls are required for indoor PE and white trainers for outside games. Both must be present in school. Earrings must be removed for PE. Boys’ kippot must be clearly labelled to prevent loss.
I look forward to what will be a fantastic year ahead in Year 2.
