Welcome to Year 2!

2021-2022

We are so excited to welcome you to Year 2 and look forward to getting to know you and your children this year. 

Our class teachers are:

Class 2B: Miss Perry           

Class 2G: Mrs Wright     

Class 2R: Miss Bartram

We are very lucky to have Mrs Tricker and Mrs Milton as our Teaching Assistants and also Miss Willingham, Mrs Bristow, Mrs Pearson, Mrs Harper, Mrs Berwick, Mrs Keen, Mrs Nicholson and Mrs Gilbert working with us throughout the week. 

Class Emails

We will access any emails at the start and end of each day. Could we please ask that you keep us informed of any changes to the normal collection of your child at the end of the day for obvious safety reasons. Thank you.

Miss Perry: 2b@williamshrewsbury.staffs.sch.uk

Mrs Wright: 2g@williamshrewsbury.staffs.sch.uk

Mrs Bartram: 2r@williamshrewsbury.staffs.sch.uk

Useful Information

Please ensure that your child brings a named water bottle to school each day as we do not have access to drinking fountains in the mobiles. Our school policy is for water only, no flavoured waters or juices please.

Please label all school uniform, including coats and footwear, and all items belonging to your child's PE kit.  It is really difficult to track down lost items of clothing if they are not clearly named! 

PE - Your child will need an indoor and outdoor PE kit. Any old joggers, jumpers, fleeces, and trainers will be fine to use outdoors. It is important to mention that we will be having all of our PE lessons outside this term. We will mostly be using the field so a spare carrier bag to put muddy footwear in would be much appreciated. 

Our PE days are:

Monday- All of Year 2

Wednesday - 2G and 2B

Friday- 2R

If your child is attending an after school sports club, please ensure they have their kit with them. If they are using their school PE kit, please make sure this is returned for our PE days. 

Please can earrings be removed on PE days or ensure that your child is able to do this independently in case you forget? We are not allowed to remove earrings ourselves or tape over them.  A container or purse would be helpful to put them in to keep them safe.

Reading - We recommend that your child reads aloud for at least 20 minutes each day. This can be fiction books, poetry, e-books, recipes, instructions or comics.  We also encourage the children to change their school reading books at least twice a week. It is great that some children have already started changing their books more frequently. We encourage the children to change their books independently so please remind them in the morning if you have packed their bag for them! The children love the Ready...Steady...Read challenges and certificates they receive.  Please feel free to record any books that you share at home with your child, not just the school readers.  

We will be sharing some great class texts this year including:

  • On the Way Home by Jill Murphy 
  • The Bear and the Piano by David Lichfield
  • The Highway Rat by Julia Donaldson
  • The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch by Ronda and David Armitage
  • The Giraffe the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl
