Woodpeckers Class 2 2021 - 2022

Mrs Sarginson

Welcome to Class 2 - Woodpeckers

Our Year 2 classroom is a friendly, inclusive environment where we are free to express our curiousity, creativity and enthusiasm for learning.  

Mrs Sarginson teaches our Maths and English (Monday - Thursday mornings). Miss Bettley and Mrs Gerrard take over in the afternoons and on Fridays.

When we arrive in the morning, we settle down to our SODA - a maths or SPaG related task.  We do spelling, handwriting and our maths lesson before play time and afterwards we do English, followed by a reading session.  After lunch we enjoy learning other subjects including History, Geography, Science, Computing, RE, Art and Music.  Our dedicated PE coaches join us on Mondays and Fridays when we come to school in our PE kit.  

Our topics for the Autumn term are 'How are we special?' and 'London's Burning!'.  We will be looking at superheroes, both real and imaginary, and delving into history to learn about The Great Fire of London!  

Please bring your home reading record and book in every day so we can change books as required (Mon-Thurs). A short comment from an adult is much appreciated so we know how you are getting on.  We will also keep a separate reading book and reading record for use at school. Aim to read a little every night - 5 or 10 minutes is plenty!

Please bring a named water bottle every day along with a healthy snack or a named purse or envelope with money to buy toast or bagel.  

Don't hesitate to contact Mrs Sarginson or Miss Bettley with any queries, no matter how small!  Mrs Sarginson is available before school so please pop in if you need me or catch me for a quick chat at the school gate!  We will endeavour to reply to any emails as soon as possible.

 

 

 Rules for online safety

  1. I will tell my parents/guardians right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.
  2. I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking it with my parents/guardians.
  3. I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in anyway make me feel uncomfortable.  It is not my fault if I get a message like that.  If I do I will tell my parents/guardians right away.
  4. I will talk with my parents/guardians so that we can set up rules for going on-line.  We will decide upon the time of day that I can be on-line, the length of time I can be on-line and appropriate areas for me to visit.  I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
  5. I will not give out my internet password to anyone (even my best friends) other than my parents/guardians.
  6. I will check with my parents/guardians before downloading or installing software or doing anything that could possibly hurt our computer or jeopardize my family’s privacy.
  7. I will be a good citizen and not do anything that hurts other people or is against the law.
  8. I will help my parents understand how to have fun and learn things on-line and teach them things about the internet, computers and other technology.
  9. If I am worried about anything I will talk to an adult.
