John Paul Class


 Welcome to John Paul Class’ page. I am Miss Ridley and I am thrilled to be teaching year 2 this year!

In Year 2, we will be developing our Literacy skills through the use of many different exciting books which will inspire the children to write.  The children will build on their Mathematical knowledge by taking part in many different problem solving opportunities that will aim to deepen their understanding of different Mathematical concepts.

PE will take place on a Tuesday and a Friday. Please ensure that all PE kits are clearly labelled to avoid lost items.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be collected in school on a Wednesday. This will include both a Maths and Literacy task. If you are unsure about any of the homework that has been set for your child, please do not hesitate to ask.

Spellings will be given out on a Monday and your child will be tested on a Friday. Please make sure you practise these at home!

Please read with your child every night and sign their reading record afterwards.

I am looking forward to an exciting year with year 2 and endeavour to inspire a love of learning within John Paul class!
