A caring place to Learn and Grow

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

 

We hope you have a lovely summer break. We are really looking forward to the coming year.

 

If you have not already done so please return PE kits so that they are in school when the children need them. During P.E. and other physical activities, the school follows the guidance for Health and Safety from Essex County Council. Guidance is also followed from the British Association of Advisors and Lecturers in Physical Education (BAALPE). All earrings must be removed for PE lessons. Children are no longer allowed to cover their earrings with tape. If children are not able to remove their own earrings they should not be worn to school on PE days, staff are not permitted to remove children’s earrings. The children are permitted to join in with PE if they are wearing the rubber/plastic earring retainers instead of studs. 

 

Mrs Johnson/Mrs Crane's class - Tuesday and Thursday.

Mrs Graham's class - Monday and Tuesday.

 

Homework will be given out on Thursdays. Please return completed homework by the following Tuesday. If your child has any problems completing their homework please let us know. 

 

Click on Year Group 2 and the Homework Star.

Sometimes this will be a written task that the children can complete in their homework books and hand in on a Tuesday. Other times we may set homework on Purple Mash, details of which will also be in the Homework Star.

Children will need to log in with their Purple Mash logins and it will appear as a ‘To Do’.

Weekly spellings will also be available in the homework star.

 

If you have any queries you can contact us by the school office or email year2@greatberry.essex.sch.uk. Please contact the office for anything that is urgent. 

 

 

As you are aware financial pressures on school are ever increasing and this makes it challenging for us to source some of the resources we would like to provide the children with. Following previous meetings and forums, the community’s generosity, donations and gifts have been a huge support. Therefore, to help with supporting us on resourcing specific items, we have set up a year group Amazon gift list. There is no obligation to do so, but if you would like to support us in this way then please follow the link below:

Many thanks to those parents who have already kindly donated gifts from the Amazon Wish List, we are extremely grateful. 

 

 

 

Thank you  for your continued support.

 

 

Kind regards

 

Year 2 team
