Welcome to Year 2 - Beech
Welcome to Beech class - Your child will be taught by Miss Morton - the class teacher with the help of Mrs Penn and Mrs Terrington - the class teaching assistants.
Monday mornings are when families are welcomed into the classroom to read with their child. This is a great opportunity for everyone to get together at the start of the week. This session is from 8.40-8.55.
We have Letters and Sounds everyday at 9.00. This is when we split up into our phonics groups and challenge ourselves with new words and spelling rules. After this we have either an English or maths lesson. On Mondays and Wednesdays we have an assembly at 10.15 where we all gather to share stories and sing songs. Break is next at 10.30, we all hope for dry weather and a not too muddy field so that we can run free and explore the woods. At 11:45 we split into our guided reading groups where some of us will read with Miss Morton or Mrs. Penn and some of us will complete independent activities. Finally, we can all tidy up and get ready for lunch which begins at 12.15.
In the afternoons we work on our topic work or we go to the library or have a PE session in the hall. This is our creative time to build, make, ask lots of questions and discover. After a day full of fun and learning we are ready to collect our letters and pack up our book bags. We eventually reunite with our parents at 3.15, unless you are at one of our wonderful after school clubs. When we arrive home we mustn’t forget to read our books and complete our homework which is set on Fridays and is due in the following Thursday.
