Welcome to Year 2F
Autumn Term 1
Welcome back to our important Year in Year 2 at Hindley Green, Community, Primary School.
We have 30 amazing members in our class and our teacher is Mrs Fairhurst.
Year 2 is a great year and as you know we will end the year with the Government statuary requirement SAT’s tests. Although important, the assessment process that is determined at the end of the year is not solely focused upon the Reading and Maths tests. Teacher assessment is the most important part of the end of year judgements of each child.
I hope you have all had a brilliant summer with lots of fun and laughter as well as some rest and are ready for our challenges ahead! I can’t wait to get started on our Year 2 journey and look forward to meeting all the super families who will be a vital part of our successful school year. Our year will be full of fun, excitement and learning.
Autumn term here we come!
Our school day starts at 8:45am.
In order to gain further independence we encourage children to come into class on their own and remember to hand in any planners, homework books, notes or snack money.
Snack money is 50p for the week. This will provide the children with a piece of toast for Mon-Fri. Children will also have the opportunity to eat a piece of fruit during afternoon break.
Our morning break is at 10.15 am, lunch time is 11.45 am until 1pm and afternoon break is 2.00 pm.
ALL CHILDREN RECEIVE A FREE SCHOOL MEAL IN YEAR 2. YOU CAN PRE-ORDER THIS ONLINE OR YOUR CHILD CAN SELECT THEIR MEAL DURING REGISTRATION.
We have daily English and Maths sessions, including guided reading and phonics. We implement a creative curriculum throughout the week which includes Art, DT and computing. We also learn about history, geography, science and RE. We have PE and music each week which is taught by specialist teachers.
Roald Dahl Day
13th September 2017
Before we start our official topics we will be celebrating reading as a school for the first two weeks of our term due to the upcoming birthday of Roald Dahl. Collectively the school year groups have chosen a Roald Dahl story to focus upon in class. Year 2’s chosen book is ‘The Enormous Crocodile.’
DID YOU KNOW: Roald Dahl’s birthday is the 13thSeptember and he would have been 101 years old if he was alive today?
We are going to celebrate his birthday on the 13th by coming to school in fancy dress. I can't wait to see all of the costumes.
