Welcome to Class 5’s Page!!
Welcome to year 2!During your time in year 2 you will learn lots of new and exciting things . All our lessons are very engaging and lots of fun. Our classrooms are very interactive and are full of resources so even when you have finished your fantastic piece of work you can still carry on learning.
Parents please feel free to speak to me at the door at the beginning or end of the school day. Furthermore if you have any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to book an appointment with me.
Our Latest News. Remember to look at Year 2 notices in our window for all the latest news and dates for your diary.
A specific day whereby your child must hand in their home reader will be written on their home reading comment book. This will be the day that your child must bring in their reading book to be changed.
Numeracy and Literacy homework will be given out every Friday (on alternate weeks). Homework will be collected in every Friday.
Please provide your child with a reusable water bottle (preferably one with a sports cap) that can be kept in school.
Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled as this makes them easier to find if they are ever misplaced.
Glasses and Inhalers
If your child needs glasses and/or an inhaler please ensure that they have them when entering school. If possible both can be kept in school.
There are lots of opportunities for your child to earn a reward in year 2. They are all rewarded for their hard work through the week with Golden Time every Friday afternoon. Also two lucky children are picked for the Gold Award every Friday. As well as this two stars are chosen every day to choose a fantastic prize from our overflowing prize box.
Amazing manners, outstanding behaviour and brilliant work are just some of the ways you can get picked for a reward!
Thank you for all your support and co-operation! Ms Canavan

We are looking at the famous artist Piet Mondrian. We will be looking at his paintings and copying some of his most famous works of art. We will also be adding our own twist on Mondrian!
Pop into your local library and read a book by one or more of these authors and tell me what you think!
Anthony Browne is an amazing author and his books are very engaging and thought provoking and not to mention his illustrations are very entertaining! We will be reading his books throughout the year.
Dr Suess is a wonderful author! His stories are crazy,confusing and fun. Once you finally get your tongue around some of the nonsense words his stories hold some very important messages! What could the hidden message be in The Lorax?
Julia Donaldson is a fantastic author! Her stories make us laugh out loud in the infants. I will be reading her stories for the rest of my life! Stickman and The Grufalo are my all time favourites. What’s your favourite Julia Donaldson story?
