Years 1 and 2
Welcome to Class 2′s Page. (Class 2 is made up of Years 1 and 2). Our Teacher is Mrs Tait and Miss Snowball is our own teaching assistant.
Class 2's learning this term will include:
Reading: Reading at home is the best kind of homework you can do – aim for 10 minutes every night if possible.
Could we please ask for your support to ensure your child has a PE kit in school throughout the half term? Thank you.
In Class 2 we expect the bulk of children’s homework time to be devoted to varied and regular reading. 10 minutes a night really does make a difference, and adds up to just over an hour a week.
