We can't wait to begin what we know will be an amazing year with the most amazing children.
See you all soon!
Miss Davies & Mrs Borland
Below you will find links for each half term, where we will update you on our medium term planning and post pictures of all the exciting learning we have been doing each week. Below these are our every day routines, please ensure you read this as somethings are a little bit different this year. At the very bottom of this page you can find the long term learning plan, which shows everything year 2 will cover this year.
School starts at 8:50 - 9:10
(Children are able to arrive during these times whilst current
Covid measures apply but please no later than 9:10)
As I'm sure you will understand we are currently unable to invite parents into school for our SODA activities which we usually use to share what the children have been learning. However, we will be using our class pages to showcase all of the learning that we will be doing each week and we would love for you to share this with your children.
We appreciate that dropping off your children is a very special moment, but we kindly ask that you try and make it a speedy goodbye to ensure the safety of all our Moss Park Infant Community.
School finishing times are at present between 3:00 and 3:20. Children can be collected between these times. Once again we kindly ask that collecting of pupils is speedy to ensure that appropriate safety measures are continued.
A chance to talk with your child's class teacher is so important to us and we love nothing more than to come and find you and tell you all about the magic each and everyone brings to our class. As this can no longer take place in our traditional Moss Park fashion, we will be sharing our class email address so that you can always contact us.
We will always ensure that during these times if there is any need to contact you individually we will do so. Please make sure we have your up to date contact details (mobile & email), any changes please notify the school office at your earliest conviencence.
Your child will be given a colour levelled reading book that they can change everyday in school with an adult. To ensure that there is no delay in changing reading books we ask that you sign on completion of the book.
On entry into our class is a reading book basket. Any books placed in here by your child will be checked by the class teacher and then changed.
Please read with your child ideally everyday, but as often as possible. Reading open so many opportunities and is fundamental to your child's learning.
Homework will be sent out every Friday, please return the completed homework by the following Wednesday so that it can be marked.
PE kits will be required on PE days only.
All children are expected to arrive in a suitable PE kit on their PE days.
Children can remain in their PE kits all day and there is no need to send in a school uniform.
In light of the most recent of measures PE kits will be required to go home with children after each PE lesson so as to avoid where possible the sharing of personal items children can remain in their PE kits and return home in them.
A suitable PE kit can include: white T-shirt, navy shorts, pumps, long pair of navy/black jogging bottoms and a long sleeved top (fleece or cardigan).
PE will take place indoors and/or outdoors so please ensure that on PE days to have a quick check of the weather before hand
