Welcome to Class 2’s Home Page

Our class teacher is the dashingly handsome Mr Cannell! Mrs Hill and Mrs Calvert are our Educational Teaching assistants and are here to help us with our work every day. In addition we have Mrs Shield and Mrs Riley working 1:1. Miss Ahmed and Miss Greenwood are Level 3 childcare students. In addition we will be welcoming a final year student teacher from Leeds Trinity University to complete their teaching practice a bit later in the year. 


The first project of the year is Superheroes. In this project we cover some science, some geography, art and we do lots of fiction story writing. We do English and Maths every day in Year 2.

Most children have now moved on to Accelerated Reader, which is a computer programme to check progress. It would help greatly if you could take any opportunities to read with/to your child. This means they don't have a reading record book, please log in to receive emails to check their progress. Book bags need to come in everyday as everyone reads independently (if possible) every day in addition to 1:1 reading with an adult and group guided reading. 


PE days are Mondays and Fridays. I would advise leaving them in school and taking them home at the end of each half term. PE kit is a plain, white T-shirt and black shorts/leggings.

Homework is set on Fridays and usually due on a Wednesday. As we stream for phonics your child’s phonics teacher will tell them the day their spellings will be due.


If you have any concerns throughout the year then please feel free to bob in after school to see me.


Here’s to a cracking year in Year 2.


Mr P. Cannell
