Dandelion Class- Year 2

Welcome to Dandelion Class

Year 2!





This term our theme will be 'Wonderful Wellington'

Teacher - Miss Howell
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Fleet

Hello and welcome back to a brand new school year!laugh

I hope you have all had a restful summer holidays and that your children are excited to begin their Year 2 adventure! 

You will find key information on this page. Please read to familiarise your self with the information. 


As always, the children will be expected to read at least four times a week and an adult needs to record any home reading in their yellow Reading Records. If you finish the book, please make sure this is also recorded so it can be changed. If completed, books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday.  Want extra books or for them to be changed more frequently? Your child can place their finished book in our 'book tray' and it will be changed that day. 

There will be a certificate and a treat for those children who complete their 4 reads a week! Please encourage and support your children with their reading. Home books can be included in the reading record too!


All children will eventually have weekly spellings. They will be tested on a Friday and new spellings will be given on the same day. These have not started yet. 

The children who complete the reading challenge and their spelling homework, will receive an extra 'Golden Time' as a treat on Friday afternoons. 


Dandelion Class will have their P.E. day on a Tuesday and the children can wear their P.E. kits into school. PE kit must be a red top and black shorts/joggers. The sessions will be outside for as long as the weather permits, so please make sure children have appropriate clothing and footwear. Jumpers and cardigans are permitted. 


If you need to speak to me, please catch me before or after school. If a longer chat is more appropriate, please ring the office to make an appointment.

Thank you for your support already.  


Miss Howell :)
