2 Birch - Mrs Plant
Welcome to Year 2 Birch class page
I am very excited to be working with both your child and you this year. This page is a wonderful place to find ALL the information you need for the year ahead. I will regularly update it with pictures of your child's learning in school. If there is anything that I can help you with please do not hesitate to ask.

Every day routines
School starts at 8.50am prompt, this is a time for parents to come into school and settle their child into their learning. We call this S.O.D.A time (start of the day activity)
School finishes at 3.30pm prompt. Please be on time to pick up your child, if you are delayed or someone else is collecting your child please contact the school office.
Your child has a colour levelled reading book that they will change in school with an adult. If your child has read their book and needs a new one, please put it into the box by the door at the start of the day along with their reading record. We have very high expectations of parents and expect that your child reads at least 4 times a week and changes their book regularly. Please remember to sign their reading record.
Reading at home and in school is so important. In the words of Dr Seuss, You can find magic whenever you look.. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book!
Please can your child bring their book bag to school every day.
Homework will be sent out every Friday, please return the homework by the Wednesday so that it can be marked. Each week there will be a Homework Star of the Week presented in our Friday Celebration Assembly.
Year 2 will have Physical education on Monday and Thursday (all year). Please bring their PE kit into school and leave it in school for at least each half term (they really don't get too dirty)
We have an awards assembly each Friday for approx. half an hour. In this assembly there will be 2 certificates awarded in each class. You will receive a text by Wednesday if your child is going to receive a certificate inviting you to come along and celebrate.
