Our Class – Year 2

Welcome to Year 2’s Class Page!

 

Teacher: Miss Clarke

Hello! My name is Miss Clarke and I am really excited to be in Year 2 again this year. I enjoy reading in the classroom, running the school choir and dancing to exercise at the end of a busy day!  If you have any questions, please email me on lucy.clarke@allsoulsschool.co.uk.

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Elkins

Here you will find general information about life in Year 2. For pictures and information about what we have been getting up to in class each week, please see our blog.

 

Autumn Newsletter 2020

Welcome back and welcome to Year 2! The children are beginning to adapt to life in their new year group and the new routines we have put in place to keep the children safe. It has been a privilege to get to know them over the last few weeks and I am very much looking forward to the year ahead- they are a lovely class! So far this year we have recapped on the Year 1 learning objectives as well as touching briefly on Year 2 learning. We have also spent plenty of time in our great forest school area and kept as active as we can outside. We are lucky to be joined this year by Mrs Elkins, who will be joining us each morning and Monday and Tuesday afternoon. Although it’s been a strange start to the school year, I’m hopeful that we will be able to take some trips in the near future! I hope that this newsletter will answer any questions that you have about the upcoming term. If you have any unanswered questions or would like to speak to me about anything (however small), feel free to contact me via my email (lucy.clarke@allsoulsschool.co.uk).
