"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Welcome to Year 2!

Who is in the Year 2 classroom?

In Year 2 Mr Bayliss is our Teacher and Mrs Wheatley is our Teaching Assistant.


What does my child need to bring to school?

Everyday children will require: a water bottle, a waterproof coat and an Orchard Primary School book bag. Within your book bag you will need your reading diary, weekly phonics books and guided reading book.


At the start of each half term we also recommend that you bring your PE kit, in an appropriate bag, and leave it in school for the duration of the half term. Within your PE kit you will need an Orchard Primary PE top, appropriate bottoms (shorts and jogging bottoms to choose dependent on the weather), PE pumps / trainers and an additional pair of socks.


Our PE sessions in the Spring Term will be Monday afternoon and Commando Jo will be a Friday afternoon; children will require their own PE kits to participate,


What homework will be set in Year 2?

It is an expectation that the children read every school night (at least 5 times a week), practice their spellings ready for Monday's test and times tables for Thursday's quiz. In Year 2  we will also be setting four 10 minute challenges each week. These challenges will be sent home on a Friday and will focus on the core areas of the curriculum (reading, writing and maths) as well as a Topic related challenge that will be the focus of our Friday show & tell.


What do I do if I have a question?

Please see myself or Mrs Wheatley at collection if you have a question or query that is easily resolved. If you have an issue or question requiring a more detailed response it may be best to arrange a meeting by contacting the school office.
