Mrs Gibbins

Welcome to another term in Year2! We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas holiday and have made lots of lovely memories. We are so excited to be starting another term full of exciting learning opportunities. We look forward to continue working closely with you and your children. Home learning and support will be an integral role in your child’s learning. We will continue with the reading, spelling and diary writing homework. Once again this term we will be sending home the menu homework in the blue books . There will also be a variety of online resources for your child to use at home.  As you are aware your child will sit their SATS this academic year, you will be invited to an information evening in the next few weeks where we can share arrangements and expectations with you. A key priority will be the relationships between teachers and parents to ensure that the children are fully supported at home and at school. Communication is a crucial part of this process so please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher or year leader.
