Miss Summers class
WELCOME TO YEAR 2!
Hello Year 2!
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 and Mrs Oxpring at lunchtimes!
We have had a fantastic start to the year, with all the children settling back in to school life and enjoying time with their friends. I understand and appreciate any concerns that you have regarding the new local lockdown however, please rest assured that I aim to create as ‘normal’ a school environment as possible for the children.
If you need to contact me, please do not hesitate to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org

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!
We had lots of fun learning about Chinese New Year!
