Message from your new teachers
Hello Year 2 of 2020 – 2021,
We’re so excited that you’re going to be our new classes and we can’t wait to get to know you! We’ve set lots of different transition tasks to help us find out a bit more about you as we can’t see you in person yet! There’s some writing and maths tasks and lots of lovely creative ones so we can see your fabulous art skills. You don’t have to complete them all but we’d love to see anything you do, you can email us at email@example.com One of the tasks is also to apply for any roles you’d like in school next year such as school council or worship team, you can apply for as many as you like.
We know coming back to school this year might be a bit strange as some of you haven’t been in for quite a long time so we’ve sent your grown ups some information about what year 2 will be like. If you’ve got any questions please just ask but we think you’ll really like being in Year 2 so hopefully by September you’ll all be really excited to return.
Have a lovely, relaxing summer,
Miss Slaney, Miss Johnson and the Year 2 team x

Key Things to be Practising Ready for Year Two
Year 2 is a really fun year but we also do lots of learning so to make sure you can make a super start to the year here’s a few skills to practise over the summer:
- Reading: read anything you like but try to read as much as possible!
- Writing: maybe you could write a diary (just a couple of sentences every so often) or sent someone a letter or postcard? Remember those capital letters and full stops.
- Maths: practise your number bonds to 10 and counting in your 2s, 5s and 10s then you’ll be ready to start learning your timestables!
- If you have a skipping rope at home you can get practising!
- Tying your shoelaces, especially important if your PE trainers have laces. 🙂
