Welcome to Year 2!
Hello and welcome to Year 2! My name is Mrs Copley and I am the class teacher along with Miss Morley who is our class teaching assistant. As well as being the class teacher I am also Maths and History leader. The most favourite part of my job is getting to work with lots of children who are all different and bring so much joy to our close-knit school family.

Reading books will be sent home each Friday along with a reading record. Please ensure that you listen to your child read daily and then record this in the reading record. We will then count how many times your child has read that week and this information will be used to decide who is the greatest reader. Raffle tickets and dojos will also be given out to those children reading at home. Please return reading books each Thursday.
