Welcome to Class 2

I am Mr Neilson: your child’s new teacher. Miss Cummins and Mrs Wiltshire will be Class 2’s teaching assistants. Year 2 is always a very busy year. I look forward to seeing how much the children come on as the weeks go by!

Children will this year be working in Kagan teams. This cooperative learning style used throughout the school helps create more active engagement and the structures teach pupils social skills, interaction with other pupils, turn taking, listening to the views of others and sharing information. The class have been put into mixed-ability groups and will work most of the time in these groups. We will regularly be doing team-building and class-building activities and the groups will change each half term.

In our first half term we will be thinking a lot about food: it is our Literacy topic and in Geography we will be learning about where our food comes from. The book 'Oliver's Vegetables' will be our starting point. In Maths we will be doing lots of work on number and place value in particular. Please see the Curriculum Overview below for more information.


Homework will go out on Tuesday and should be back in on Monday. Spellings will go out and be tested on Friday. Children will earn house points if they have had a good attempt at their homework. Homework that is not brought in on time will be completed in detention.


Your child will soon receive their reading book that they should frequently read with you at home. To help your child, please send in their reading book and record so that we can ensure that your child’s reading book is changed regularly when they are ready for a new one. This also helps us to let you know when we have read with your child. The children can wow us with what they have read at home and this makes sure we have a suitable book handy. It is sometimes worthwhile to read books a couple of times to ensure the children have understood. At home, you can help your child by asking questions about what they have read. This will help you check if they have understood and also if they can read out loud clearly with expression, which is really important.
