Willow Class - Year 2

Welcome to Willow Class!
Willow class' teacher is Mrs Harder and her TA's are Mrs Smith and Mrs Olliver

General information:

PE days – Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Please ensure that PE kits are in school every week and that items are labelled.  We have lessons outside as well as in the hall, so jogging bottoms will be really useful when the weather changes.

Reading - Please try and read as much as possible at home with your child and record a brief comment in their reading journal. We cannot stress enough how important this is!  This is essential as it will boost your child’s reading ability, both decoding and comprehension skills. Children will bring home a reading book which they choose from their coloured box.  It is  also vital that you can encourage your child to read other material at home to get them used to a wide range of texts. The children read once a week in school during Guided Reading sessions, as well as individually during their afternoon ERIC (Everybody Reading In Class) sessions. They will also be heard individually as much as possible.  On alternating Fridays, Year 2 share books with Year 6 during the ERIC session.  

If you are available at any time to come in and read with the children, we would welcome you with open arms!
