Hello there, my name is Mr Murphy and I am the class teacher for 2M.

Supporting the children’s learning in 2M this year are Mrs Ardani, Mr Kohler and Ms Caine.

We are a wonderful class of hard working, polite children and love to support each other in our learning.

General Information

Book bags 

Please read with your child every night. We would also ask you to write a short comment on how your child read the text. Children can bring their book bag in any day for their book to be changed. Books will be changed at least once a week.

We would encourage children to read for pleasure at home and gain a real love for reading.

P.E.

We have P.E. on Mondays and Fridays. Children must have a P.E. kit in school. We have storage for the children to keep their P.E. kit in school, each half term P.E. kits will be sent home.

Homework

Homework will be sent out each Friday, please work through this with your child and return to school by Wednesday.

Maths

Essential in Year 2 is counting to and from 100 and adding 10 to any number up to 100. Please practise this skill at home, it really helps our arithmetic lessons! We practise our 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables and extra support in this at home would be very helpful. All the children have logins for Times Tables Rockstars to help with their times tables.

Please continue to support and help with homework, reading and after school clubs at home. The door is always open for anyone that would like a chat about your child and how they are progressing.

Thanks

Mr Murphy
