I really cannot wait to meet all of the children and families of class 2D on Monday when we start transition! It really is one of the most exciting days of the year as we grow our relationships together!
If you haven’t signed up for a transition tea yet then please do! You really need to come and explore what it means to be a ‘Calm’ year 2 together as it’s important that this journey is done together! You will need to book one of these online through a link sent on Parent Pay.
Please also know that the door is always open, we can grow anything together and we need to believe that we can achieve anything. No question is too small or big (or too silly either). Please come and connect with me at anytime if you need to and I hope we can start this next step of the adventure with lots of excitement! Let us build one community together 😀
Looking forward to the last 3 weeks of the school year!
Year 1 and 2 are working really hard on their handwriting.
In Year 2, we have introduced the terms ‘ascenders’ and ‘descenders’ to help them position their letters correctly on the handwriting lines.
In both Year 1 and Year 2, the children are familiar with the story of brave monkey and scared monkey to help them understand which letters start at the top pink link (brave monkey’s branch) and which letters start at the top grey line (scared monkey’s branch).
Please visit http://kineticletters.co.uk/ to learn more about the Kinetic letters programme, or speak to your child’s class teacher.
Use this guide to help your child form their letters correctly at home:
