Year 2

Welcome to Year Two


Our teacher is Mr Openshaw, and our teaching assistants are Mrs Mckendrick and Mrs Storton.  We also have Mrs Lawman who teaches us two afternoons a week.


Important Days -


PE - PE will take place on a Tuesday afternoon.  Can we ask that all children have the required PE kit that is listed within the 'Equipment' section below.


Homework and spellings - this will be given out Monday or Tuesday and should be returned by the following Monday.  It is vital the children attempt their homework, particularly spelling as it will aid their learning throughout the year.


Reading -

We place a great emphasis on reading at St Laurence’s Primary School and feel it is very important that the children read every night. Reading record books should be signed by parents to indicate the page reached each evening.   On Mondays and Fridays, reading books will be changed, so books along with records must be in on those days.



Children will recieve team points for their work in their books, these go towards their team houses and the winning team gets extra play time at the end of the half term.

Golden time will be take on Fridays and will involved games, activities or an extra play time. 

Children can also be nominated for the Friday worship stickers. Children can be nominated by any member of staff or Pals (junior children who assist infant children at playtimes). We also nominate a Superstar of the week, who receives a certificate in worship on Fridays and a spot on the Top table at lunchtime.
