Welcome to Year Two!
After such a long time away from school we have been really impressed by how well the children have settled in this week and how sensibly they have adapted to our new routines.
This term we will be focussing on ensuring the children’s emotional well-being is secure as they face the challenge of being back in school full time with the increased expectations of Year Two. We have already listened to ‘The Colour Monster’ which is a simple but powerful story that teaches children to recognise different emotions. We have also had a visit form the pastoral team who helped us learn some simple strategies that we could try if we are feeling angry, anxious or upset. We have displayed prompts around the classrooms and will be discussing these strategies regularly in school. If your child has any difficulties settling in please contact their class teacher as soon as possible so that we can work together to support them.
As you are aware, the children didn’t get to take their Year 1 phonics screen in June so we will be preparing the children to sit this in December.
Year Two is a wonderful year group to be part of and it is always a real treat to see how quickly the children mature and progress. Despite spending such a long time away from the classroom, we are confident that the children hit the ground running now that we are all back!
