Year 2 Class Page





Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page.

Welcome back to Term 2. We are looking forward
to a term full of fun, happiness and hard work.

This term, in week 3, we will be hosting assembly. 
We would love you to come and see what we have been learning about. 



Important: 

Week 9- 2B will be having library on Tuesday instead of Wednesday. 

Can you please ensure your child/ren have all of the equipment they require in their pencil cases e.g eraser, sharpener, colour pencils.

Please ensure that you have booked a parent interview. If you need to make alternative arrangements, please see your child's teacher.

                
 Thank you for your continued support


Wellbeing
At SPX our students are developing skills for building positive responsible relationships, and are practising using these strategies in the classroom and the playground, so that they can use them effectively in their lives and become more resilient. The teaching of interpersonal relationships is linked with the School Positive Behaviours for Learning (SPB4L) and Personal Development and Health Syllabus. 
The children have been explicitly taught the three step process to assist them with coping and dealing with classroom and playground situations. 
Step 1 
Stop it, I don't like what you are doing or saying. It is also a good idea if they can tell the person specifically what they do not like.
Step 2
Please stop doing or saying that. I don;t like it.
Step 3
I have asked you to stop what you are doing. I have asked you three times and I am going to tell the teacher.

Important    
Dismissal - please ensure that a teacher gains eye contact or gives you a wave to acknowledge that they have seen you before they allow your child to leave.

Absences - If your child is sick, please keep them at home. When notifying the school of an absence, please provide a written note, email or phone call.
An Exemption from school form is required for absences that are for 10 or more days. Please contact the office. 

Parent Interviews
Reasons: Academic, social, emotional or behaviour. (Please make a time so we can give the issue the attention it needs, as opposed to on the run catch-ups). Parents can make an appointment through the school office or by contacting the teacher directly. 

Please be aware teachers have staff meetings on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings. The teachers are not available at these times.

If your child is having a birthday, they are welcome to bring in lolly pops or similar items. Please be aware that many children have allergies and are not allowed to eat cake with egg, gluten or items with traces of nuts. Please do not feel that you have to send anything in.

Please ensure that your child has all of their belongings clearly marked. 

Munch and Crunch: This is a snack that the children will have in the morning session during English time. Please ensure that your child has fruit or vegetables only and nothing that is too messy/sticky, eg. oranges etc. They may prefer that you have it cut up and put in a container so that it is easier to eat.
