Welcome to Year 2

Hello and Welcome to Year 2!

Mrs Poole and I are very excited to welcome you back to school and to our little Thorp Community. We’ve been very busy preparing the classroom so that it is safe for learning and are looking forward to the year ahead.


Your child will be given a reading book to take home and will spend time over the week reading individually with an adult. When a child has finished their reading book they must return it to school and place it in the reading book box in the classroom.

Home Learning

Each week home learning tasks will be set using Spelling Shed and Doodle Maths. If you have forgotten your login details please contact the school office and these can be emailed out. Spelling lists will also be sent out on paper so that children can practice writing them. Please can all home learning tasks be completed by Thursday, prior to the new tasks being set on Friday.


For the first term we will be doing our P.E lessons outside on Thursday afternoons. Please make sure your child has their outdoor P.E kit in school. P.E kits will be left in the class cloakroom and returned at the end of the term. Please also make sure every item is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Mrs Poole and I are committed to making sure the children settle back into school quickly and feel both happy and safe. If you have any concerns or wish to speak to me please contact the school office. They are happy to pass on any emails or arrange a chat on the phone.
