Welcome back to school. My name is Mrs Pilkington and I will be teaching your child this year. The teaching assistant in our class is Mrs Kenyon. I hope you have enjoyed spending time together and we are sure you are now ready to start the new school year, so welcome to Year 2! We are looking forward to getting to know you and working together so that we have a very exciting and productive year. We will be working hard to ensure the children understand the new rules and routines of school.
The children will be coming home with a class dojo activation letter. We will be using class dojo to reward work, behaviour and participating in class. We will also use it to communicate with you throughout the year. We can instantly share messages, updates and photos from class. It is a great way to see what your child has been up to in class. Please follow the instructions on the letter sent home to set up your account and instantly see updates from us.
Your child will be given a reading book and a reading diary to bring home and read. They will need to keep their reading diary and books in their book bags to bring to school every day. Children can change books when their diary has been signed by someone at home to show they have read the book at least twice. It is important you read at least 5 minutes with your child daily. The children will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week at school.
