Class 3 (Year 2) - Miss Lawson
Hello and welcome to Class 3!
My name is Miss Lawson and I will be your child’s class teacher this year. I am so excited to be joining St Helen’s Primary School and to watch all of your children grow and thrive as we journey through Year 2. Working alongside me is the fabulous Miss Mallabar. We will work together to ensure each and every child has a happy, memorable and fulfilling time in Year 2. We will make sure each child feels special, valued and cared for by creating a safe and supportive environment in which every effort is celebrated.
Year 2 is an important year as we will be preparing to take the end of Key Stage SATs and ensuring that the children are ready to make the transition into Key Stage 2. Throughout the year we will be doing our best to develop the children’s reading, writing and mathematics skills as well as covering a variety of other exciting subjects within St Helen’s bespoke curriculum. The children’s interests and talents will always be encouraged, nurtured and celebrated in order to ensure all children develop a love of learning.
Supporting your child’s safety and wellbeing will remain our top priority. Should you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, I will always be available to support you so please contact me. Each day I will be available on the playground either before or after school.
Your child will bring a reading book home every day. Please listen to them read, even for five minutes each day, and make a comment in their reading record. Both your child’s reading book and reading record should be returned to school every morning.
Throughout Year 2, your child will have new spelling rules, patterns and words to learn, as well as building on the learning from Year 1. To support this, they will bring home 10 spellings on a Monday. They should practise their spellings each night and they will be tested on a Friday. The spelling sheets do not need to be returned to school.
Each Monday your child will also be given maths homework. This could be linked to the week’s learning or be something which needs to be regularly reinforced, such as the times tables. This work should be completed and returned to school by Friday.
For PE, the children are required to wear black shorts, a white t-shirt and appropriate footwear. Please note that the PE kit should not be the t-shirt and/or footwear that the pupils wear to school.
I hope you all have a great summer and I look forward to meeting you and your children very soon! See you in September!
