Miss L Hart

Teaching Assistant

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to our class page! Miss Hart and I are really excited to teach our class of 22 wonderful children! We have jumped straight into learning and all the children have quickly adapted to the 'new normal' school life. 

Please remember to look at our web pages and Facebook page, so that you can keep up-to-date with our fabulous learning.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to arrange an appointment with myself via the school office or send me an email.

Key Dates for Autumn









Book Change Day

Spelling Test





Forest School





Homework Set


Forest School Dates: Friday 25th September, Friday 2nd October, Friday 9th October and Friday 16th October. Please send your child to school in their school uniform on Forest School Days but remember to bring their Forest School waterproofs (all in one or pants and coat) with their wellies in a bag.



Tasks: Every Friday your child will be set homework on Seesaw / MyMaths. Your child will be shown how to complete the task in class before attempting to complete it at home.

Spellings: We will share ten words linked to a spelling rule we have been practising in class for your child to learn each week. There will also be an additional 1-2 common exception words, which will not be linked to the spelling rule practised. There will be a spelling test the following Friday for children to show what they have learnt.  

Reading: Due to current restrictions, we will only be changing books once a week (Thursday) when the children will be given two books to read at home. Please access reading in other ways such as through local libraries, books you have at home and which enables you to access a range of books online for free. However, you will need to sign up for a free account first. Please support your child at home by listening to them read daily. If you would like to share something about your child’s reading with us, please do so via Seesaw.

Water: Please ensure that your child has a bottle of water every day, labelled with their name, to keep them hydrated throughout the day and to drink with their lunch. We are no longer able to provide the children with cups from school.

Snack: They can bring in a healthy afternoon snack, which must be kept in their coat pocket or book bag.  

P.E kits: We will be doing PE outside as much as possible so please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit for this. Their kit can remain in school for the half term. 

Forest School: Please bring waterproof clothing and wellies on their Forest School dates. This could be a waterproof all-in-one suit or separate waterproof trousers and coat. This will make it easier for the children to put on over their school uniform and mean that they will not need to get changed in school.
