Welcome to Class 2!
When you check in on a regular basis, you will have the opportunity to view what your child has been learning in class.
Who is who in Class 2
Mrs Tait- Class teacher
Mrs Simpson- Teaching assistant
Tuesday and Wednesday - PE
Please name all of your child’s clothing as it helps the children identify and develop independence in looking after their own belongings, as well as prevents belongings getting muddled up!
Please remember to order your child's lunch using SchoolGrid!
The skill of reading is one of the most important we teach our children. It is a life skill that enables them to extend their concepts, gain information as the basis for other learning and to gain access to the magical world of fantasy.
Please sign your child's reading record once you have heard them read.
Week beginning 1st March
Hello class 2 and parents,
