Welcome to Year 2

My name is Mrs Ephgrave and I am the Year 2 class teacher. Also supporting our learners we have our fabulous teaching assistants- Mrs Barnsley, Miss Smith, Mrs Jenkins and Mrs Harmes.
Some children in Year 2 will bring home a Read Write Inc phonics book labelled ‘home read’. They will be reading the same version in school, in their RWI group. They will also bring home a ‘book bag book’: this book builds upon the ideas and many of the words in the ‘home read’ book. All children in Year 2 will also bring home a reading book on a Friday, this is to be practised daily and will be changed the following Friday. Please can you comment on Class Dojo when you have done reading at home.
Homework will be set on Google Classroom every Friday for children to complete by the following Wednesday. In addition to this, children accessing RWI will bring homework to practise new sounds taught.
PE takes place on a Wednesday afternoon so please can the children come to school in their PE kits.
The children have access to fresh fruit at snack time. Alternatively, they can bring a healthy snack from home. As we have children with nut allergies in school, please ensure that snacks from home are nut free. Children are allowed to bring water bottles into school. Please ensure that water bottles are named and are taken home each day for washing.
If you have any questions or queries at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch,
Thank you for your support,  The Year Two team
