Miss Summers class
WELCOME TO YEAR 2!
Hello Year 2 and welcome back!
My name is Miss Summers and I am the Year 2 Teacher here at St Oswald’s.
I am joined by a superb team of staff …Miss Smith, Mrs Lasek, Mrs Rowland, Miss Wallwork and Mrs Oxpring at lunchtimes!
It has felt like a very long time since we have been at school but I hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday and are excited to come back. I am very excited to be teaching this class for the upcoming year. We have got lots of exciting things planned and I can’t wait to get started! Our first topic is “Towers, Tunnels and Turrets” so we will be delving into Castle life!
As we get back into the routine of school life, we will be focussing a lot on the children’s well-being to ensure they feel safe and secure in the school environment again. My aim is to ensure that your child is happy coming to school.
I am really looking forward to seeing your “All About Me” projects during the first couple of weeks.
I look forward to seeing you all in September!

Spellings; As we move into year 2, I will be issuing your child/ren with a new set of spellings every Friday. They can be found in your child’s spelling record. Please ensure they are in school EVERY FRIDAY. Take some time to practice these with your child, little and often is best. We use lots of different ways to learn our spellings in class – ‘pyramid words’ are always a popular choice!
Times Tables; During the Autumn term, we will be learning to count in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s. It is a good idea to practice these times tables as much as possible to support your child/ren as they move up through school.
Homework; Your child will receive a piece of Maths or English homework every other week starting after half term.
Reading; Please encourage your child to reads for at least 10 minutes EVERY NIGHT at home. Please record this in your child’s reading record. In our class we understand that it is important to have a ‘love for reading’. Reading little and often is a good way to improve your child’s understanding reading while asking lots of questions. If you are unsure of the type of questions you should ask about a book, I am more than happy to offer some suggestions!
Please keep checking the website for notices and to see photographs of the different things we have been up to during the school day!
