Welcome to Year Two!


We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead with lots of interesting topics to learn about, including Inventors, The United Kingdom and Australia!


Keep posted on our class page and Twitter for updates and information about things we have been doing. 


Mrs Pennington is our class teacher but Mrs Woods will be looking after us until Mrs Pennington returns from maternity leave. Mrs Willocks teaches us on a Friday. 


Mrs McCormac, Mrs Rowlands and Mrs Brand also work in our class.




Key Information


Please read the full Return to School Plan and updates posted on the main page by Mr Sheeran for general information



Due to staggered timings, Year Two children should now come in through the Bury Road gate on to the Junior Playground at 8.45am and 9am. Collection is from the Junior Play ground at 3.10 pm. Only one parent should be present at drop off and collection to eliminate crowding. Face coverings are advised at drop off and pick up and social distancing guidance must be adhered to.


Please be patient with us as we put these new systems in place and work to make them run as smoothly as possible!


Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Children should come to school on these days dressed in their PE kit- white t-shirt, black or navy jogging bottoms and either school jumper or black or navy hoodie. They may wear pumps or trainers as appropriate for the weather.


Children who have packed lunches may bring lunch boxes as normal. Book bags are fine but please ensure children don't bring any other personal items from home into school.


We aim to promote a love of reading in Year Two and have lots of exciting books we plan to share with the children. To support this at home, please ensure your child reads regularly at home.

 We will not be sending home reading books for the first couple of weeks of term, but children will be given lots of opportunities to read in school!


No homework will be set to begin with. We will send further information when homework begins.

Dear Year Two,

We know it has been a very strange few months for everyone and will be making sure happiness and safety comes first as we begin our exciting learning journey into Year Two!
