Year 2

 

 

WELCOME TO YEAR 2!

Online learning is now available on Google Classroom.

 

If you're joining us for the live sessions at 1:30pm, log in to your Google Classroom and click the link that is on the stream and is also displayed at the top of the page, beneath the class name. If you are accessing the meeting via iPad or android device, you may need to download the 'Google Meet' app in order to join the meeting. Please remember to only join the meeting using your child's Google log in details - do not use a parent or carer account as you will not be granted access for safety reasons.

 

We full appreciate that many of our parents will be working from home and the difficulties this presents with online learning. Please rest assured that there will be no repercussions where pupils are unable to complete online learning.

Important Dates:

 

Monday 4th January - school closed to all pupils

Tuesday 5th January onwards - school open to critical worker and vulnerable pupils

Y2 PE activities in school and online will continue to be on Tuesdays.

News

 

  • We are pleased to say we now have E45 cream available for children to use in school if their hands are becoming sore from the very thorough and frequent handwashing routines.
  • Your child has now received their Google Classroom log in details. These are stuck into their reading diaries - we recommend taking a photo of these log in details on a device so if the diary 'disappears', then the log in details are safe!
  • As we do not recommend that parents/carers give out sweets or treats to celebrate their child's birthday, we are now introducing non-uniform days to celebrate children's birthdays. On your child's birthday (or the day closest to it, if it falls on a weekend or during the holidays), your child may come to school in their own clothes in recognition of their special day!

Welcome to Year 2!

Key Information:

Star Class - Mrs Ellis and Mrs Horsfall

Sun Class - Mrs White and Miss Cooper

Moon Class - Mrs Williams and Mrs Rowe

 

School looks a little bit different this year, but we're sure that we will all still have plenty of fun and learn lots at school. We will be washing our hands lots of times for at least 20 seconds with soap and water and we will be trying to keep our distance from each other. The teachers will clean the classrooms in the middle of the day and we will each have our own equipment packs to use and keep safe in our drawers. We will also be having lunch in our classrooms!

 

Year 2 has three bubbles - Star Class bubble, Sun Class bubble and Moon Class bubble. At the moment, we can't mix across the bubbles, but we can still wave and say hello to each other.

 

When dropping off and collected pupils in Year 2, parents/carers should use the Mason Road gate to enter and exit the site. Our school days are staggered this year:

 

Star Class: 08:45 - 14:45

Sun Class: 09:05 - 15:05

Moon Class: 09:15 - 15:15

 

PE is on TUESDAY for all classes in the Autumn Term - come to school in your PE kits. There is no need to bring your uniform to change into.

 

Earrings must be removed for PE - if your child is unable to remove their own earrings, please ensure they are removed before coming to school on PE days. Unfortunately, children wearing earrings will be unable to take part in PE.

 

Please ensure that ALL school uniform is clearly labelled including lunchboxes and water bottles. The children are responsible for their own belongings during the school day as we are trying not to touch other people's belongings to keep each other safe.

 

It is essential that parents/carers walk their children to their classrooms in the morning - please do not send children unattended to the classrooms. Remember to let your child's class teacher know if your child is going home with another parent, or will be collected by someone different. Alternatively, ring or email the school office who will inform your child's class teacher.

 

There are lots of websites with games and activities to support your child's learning in Year 2. Check out:

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

 

  • Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:
  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
