Year 2 Teacher


Welcome to Year 2 and Happy New Year!

We hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year break and we are looking forward to the Spring Term.

Our Spring Term topic is 'From England to India'. We start by locating Cheshire and learning about our local area of Hartford in Spring 1 and then in Spring 2 we learn about India and compare the city of London with the city of Mumbai.

The teachers in Year 2 are Mrs Birtwistle (2NB) and Miss Crouch (2EC). Mrs Gauterin, Miss Thompson, Mrs Wishart-Terry and Mrs Hughes are our fantastic teaching assistants. Miss Church is our new trainee teacher in 2NB and Miss Thompson is also doing her teacher training in 2EC.  On Tuesdays Mrs Gatiss will be teaching Spanish and Mr Cairns will teach us P E.

A few reminders:

Homework:   Spelling and Maths homework is sent home on alternate weeks. There is also Numbots to do whenever you like.

Reading:    Reading is the gateway to learning so the more your child reads or listens to you read, the better! Children should read their phonics reading book/colour book as well as any other books they are interested in. They will bring home their reading folder containing a phonics reading book/colour book and diary every Monday. Please keep this at home during the week and send it back to school on Friday. Children are expected to read at least three times per week for about 10 minutes. Please write a comment or sign each time your child reads at home. We will check the number of times your child has read and if they have read at least three times then they will be given a new book for the next week. Children will work with a teacher as part of a small group to focus on reading skills once per week.

PE. Children will need pumps/trainers, shorts and t shirt for summer and long PE trousers and warm long sleeved top for the winter. No football kits please. Please name everything! Both classes have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Children should come ready dressed in their PE kit on these days.

Water: Children are encouraged to bring in a bottle of water each day which they can access at any time (within reason). The water fountains are not in use due to covid restrictions. Please ensure your child’s name is on their bottle.  

Snack: KS1 children are provided with a piece of fruit at morning playtime. If you would like to send in your own snack then please make sure it is healthy. No chocolate, crisps or sweets please. We are a nut and kiwi free school.

Please contact if you need to ask us anything.
