Y2 - Puffins
Welcome to Year 2 - Puffins' Class!
This is the place to be if you are looking for more information about our learning in school - see the What Are We Up To attachment below.
If we are in a Covid-Lockdown, you will also find some useful links to help you carry on learning at home. Most of our learning from home is in Teams but if you have trouble with that, these resources will keep you uptodate in that situation.
Our names are Mrs Trevitt-Piercey, Miss Trevitt and Mrs Fletcher. We have all worked together before and we make a great team! We love teaching Year 2 because the children are old enough to start to become more independent in their learning at school and the topics that we have got planned this year are really exciting! Our first topic is ‘Beside the Sea’ and we will be linking our History and Geography to it as well as our English. It’s a lovely topic to start with and the Art work that we will be doing, the children will love!
So here is a little bit of information about us:
Hello, I’m Mrs Trevitt-Piercey and I am really excited about getting back to school properly in September. I love cycling and recently went for a long bike ride in some hills, that meant a LOT of climbing up the hills (which was hard work on a bike) but coming down was really fun! I like camping and spending time outdoors, my favourite thing is barbecuing (especially on the beach) and toasting marshmallows on a campfire! Yum!! I try to eat healthily most of the time but I LOVE cake and sweets!! I love teaching all subjects but my favourite is probably Maths, what is your favourite?
Hello, I’m Miss Trevitt and I am looking forward to seeing you all in September. I love going for walks especially on the beach and in the hills too. I love finding out about birds and so I am really glad we got to choose the name Puffins for our class. I have actually seen Puffins in real life as they were nesting close to where I was walking on the cliffs. I love chocolate, teddies and beautiful joined handwriting! What are your favourite things?
Hello, I’m Mrs Fletcher and I really enjoy working in Year 2 with Mrs Trevitt-Piercey and Miss Trevitt. I love going on long walks in Skegness, especially when I stop for an ice cream! I have recently got a kitten who is called Noodles. He is a bit naughty and has been eating lots of things in my house!
We would like to say a big thank you for providing the children with trainers for PE and daily water bottles. Just a quick reminder that earrings do need to be removed by yourselves on the day that we have PE unless your child can remove their own. PE days are Tuesday and Friday.
We would really encourage home reading as much as possible – at least three times a week if possible. The difference that this makes to your child is amazing. Any reading practice helps with fluency, word recognition and your child’s understanding of the text. This comprehension is so important. They need to be able to understand the text as a whole and be able to answer questions that they are asked about it. Any questions that you can ask your child when you are reading with them will help to develop these comprehension skills that are so important to them.
Many thanks for your continued support,
The Year 2 team – Mrs Trevitt-Piercey, Miss Trevitt and Mrs Fletcher
