Welcome to Class 2

Dear Class 2 Parents,

Class 2 are involved in a bit of a mystery at the moment. We're sure that your child will have told you that some strange food has been left in our classroom. If they haven't please ask them about it or come in to see for yourself. (See attached photos too.)

Until they have found out more about these unusual happenings or solved the mystery, please could you give us a little extra time before we send you our Class topic letter? [NOTE: now available below!]

Please feel free to help us solve the mystery in any way you can.

Thank you so much for you understanding.

However, there is some information about about spelling tests that we need to share with you now.

As a school, we are reviewing our spelling policy. Therefore, in Year 2, we have decided to assess the children’s spellings via their day-to-day writing, rather than in a weekly spelling test. Spelling patterns will continue to be taught and practiced with the children across the week as before.

If you have any questions or queries about any of this or our "strange happenings" please don't hesitate to come and see either of us.

Yours appreciatively,

Mrs Merritt and Mrs Grant.

It provides a useful daily structure for learning, as well as highlighting the importance of looking after your mental health as much as your physical health.)
