Foxes (Year 2 W)



Whole School Message - Book Fair

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Next week, the Scholastic Book Fair will be visiting both sites from Tuesday to Friday inclusive; in Dormice Class at All Saints and via Seahorses Class at Woodhurst. All children will have an opportunity to visit the Book Fair during school hours and it will be open to purchase books after school until 4:15pm each day. Books can be purchased by cash on the day and all sales made help the school raise money towards the books we buy for children to use at school.

This year we are also running a school-wide Book Review competition. Children have until Monday 11th to read a book and write a short book review to hand to their teacher. To help, children will be coming home with a template this week, but examples are attached below on the documents section. Nursery and Reception classes may be completing theirs together in school. Mr Riordan and Miss Etheridge will judge all of the entries and 10 children will receive a £5 gift voucher which can be spent at the Book Fair!

So get reading, get reviewing and get into a book! We look forward to seeing all your entries and seeing you all at the Book Fair!

Mr Riordan and Miss Etheridge

Message for Foxes

Dear Parents/ Carers and all Foxes,

What a fantastic and busy first half-term we have had in Year 2 Foxes! You all deserve a very restful break, ready to come back for more exciting learning! 

Spellings and Home Learning for Autumn 2 will be issued during the first week back, so please continue to practise spellings the words you found tricky this half-term at home, and please continue to read daily with your adults.

Stay safe, healthy and enjoy your break!

Kind regards,

Mr Riordan.



English Meeting

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Thank you so much for those who were able to attend the English Reading meeting last week. These events are always an opportune moment to knowledge share and understand how we can help our children develop their skills together. We hope next time that many more of you can attend these crucial sessions.

Attached below are the KS1 Reading Vipers and Recommended Book Lists we discussed at the meeting.

Kind regards,

Mr Riordan.




Dear Parents/ Carers,

Our uniform policy is in place so that it is equitable for all and so that children feel comfortable, look smart and are ready to learn. I want to clarify a couple of points just to make sure our Foxes are feeling happy and comfortable, looking their best and have all the equipment they need! 

Shoes - Should be smart and black in colour; black trainers are not permitted.

Jumpers/ Cardigans/ Coats - Children should have a jumper or cardigan with them as we approach more variable weather, as well as a coat or jacket.

PE Kit - Should be a Warfield t-shirt or plain blue t-shirt, blue or black shorts and tracksuit bottoms for outdoors. Trainers should be velcro unless children can tie their laces themselves but the preference is for black plimsolls. 

Hair and earrings - Earrings must be taken out for PE, either before school on Mondays and Thursdays, or children must be able to take them out themselves; please note for health and safety reasons staff cannot take earrings out. If newly pierced within the last 6-8 weeks, earrings should be covered with a plaster/ tape before school on a PE day. Earrings should always be small studs. Girls hair must be tied back and girls with short hair to use hair clips to keep hair from their face. Large hair bands/ bows are not permitted.

Bags and Bottles - A small bag, ideally a Warfield book bag, should be brought into school every day with their Home Folder. All children should bring a re-useable water bottle into school with them every day. 

If you have any questions about the above, please do not hesitate to contact me via the office, or speak to me at drop-off or pick-up.

Mr Riordan.



Woodland Walk

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Thank you so much for offering your support for our Woodland Walk on Monday. I was delighted to be inundated with responses! Therefore I thought it was only fair to take responses in a ‘first in’ manner. I have made contact directly with parents who can support so if you have not heard from the office we will not require you on Monday, but thank you so much for your kind and generous offers of time - there will be plenty of opportunities throughout Year 2 where we might need an extra hand so I will keep you all in mind! 

Kind regards,

Mr Riordan.



Welcome to Foxes Class!

I hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday and are ready to learn in our exciting first term together in Year 2! This half-term our topic is 'Once upon a time...' We will be looking at lots of our favourite traditional tales, including writing our own version of Little Red Riding Hood. In Maths, we will be consolidating and furthering our place value knowledge alongside addition. Our topic will allow us to take a woodland walk as we beginning to look at mapping skills and deepen our scientific understanding of living things and their habitats. In ICT, we will be learning to touch type as we publish our stories. Our Art and D&T projects will focus on making, including lunch boxes for Little Red Riding Hood and medicine bottles and potions to help make Grandma better! In RE we will explore the creation story.

In order to safeguard all of our children, please take a moment to review the poster at the bottom of this page, which contains all of the current allergens in Foxes class. It is imperative that children bringing packed lunches and snacks to school do not bring with them items with these ingredients in. Nuts are prohibited across the whole school. This poster is also displayed on the classroom door. Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
