About our class
In 2YEW, we are a team! We work together, with the support and guidance of the adults, to be the best we can be. We support and celebrate each other’s achievements and we are proud when we accomplish something new. We follow our St Peter’s & Clifton SPIRIT in all we do and we will be recognised and celebrated when showing these school values.
PE will take place on a Monday and Tuesday this half term. The children will be taking part in Fundamental movement sessions on a Monday and on Tuesday will be learning how to play Tag Rugby with Mrs Gallagher and the PE coach.
Reading is extremely important to children of all ages, but during Year 2, you will notice significant changes in your child’s reading fluency and comprehension as they become more independent. There are numerous things we as a school do to support children’s reading and coupled with support from home, their progress accelerates momentously.
Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday. The children should bring their PE kit in a bag and will get changed for PE at school on these days. Both at the moment will require an outdoor kit
Kit required for P.E:
Boys - White T-shirt and black shorts and trainers for outdoor games during summer and winter months. Warm navy/black tracksuit and trainers for outdoor games during the winter months.
Girls - White T-shirt, black shorts or cycling shorts (not nylon or lycra) and trainers for outdoor games during summer and winter months. Warm navy/black tracksuit and trainers for outdoor games during the winter months.
Please note earrings must be removed for PE or covered by tape provided by the parent.
We follow the ‘good to be green’ behaviour management system. Every child starts the day on the green lily pad; if they make bad choices (e.g. shouting out, not listening etc.) they will move down the chart onto the blue fish, or yellow warning fish or red consequence fish. However, they can rectify this with good choices and move back onto the green lily pad. Exceptional behaviour is rewarded by moving up to the sunshine initially and then the rainbow.
We love rewarding good choices and hard work; we offer certificates for Writer, Reader, Mathematician and Spirit Star of the week.
Thank you for your ongoing support and I look forward to a brilliant year,
Mrs Gallagher and Mrs Pap.
