Dear Children and Parents,


Welcome to your new school year as Yellow Class.  It’s an exciting time as you

start the next part of your learning journey at Pear Tree School. It was great to

get to meet the children before the summer holidays and now I’m really looking forward working alongside you as we embark on a new learning adventure. 


Our focus at the beginning of the term is Roald Dahl and we are enjoying

reading The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me and doing lots of activities based on the

story and its interesting characters.

Moving into Year 2 is an important time and is all about developing your independence – not just in their leaning but also helping to remember what they need and when! With that in mind:


Kits will need to be in on a Monday and will then be sent home at half term, unless we get muddy in the meantime! Please make sure they are all clearly labelled to avoid confusion.  


Spellings will be sent out with their home-learning on a Friday ready to be tested on the following Friday.

There will also be a weekly written/practical task and something to revise verbally e.g. counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Please return home-learning books on a THURSDAY so that they can be marked etc to be sent out again on Friday.



The children will be bringing home new library books and reading books this week. As always, please encourage your child to read at home and try to make time to read with them – it doesn’t have to be a lengthy read! It could be a comic, a newspaper, a recipe book, instructions or reading to a younger siblings! Anything that encourages your child to engage in text is beneficial.  Every time a child reads their name will be displayed on the reading chart in class. If they manage 5 times in one week they will be a Star Reader.


We will be checking the children’s reading diaries each morning. Any changes in end of the day collection should be written in there or phoned in to the office.  As we build the children’s independence we will also be asking the children if they need to change their books or if they have any letters to return to school. 

Forest School

We do not have weekly set times for outdoor learning but there will be a number of sessions per term when your child will be required to bring in wellies and a coat. We will let you know when.


Please make sure all uniform, water bottles and purses are clearly labelled to avoid confusion.


Final plea – If anyone (parent/grandparent) has any time to spare to come and hear children read this would be much appreciated. This could be anything from half a day a week to 15 minutes at drop off or pick up time. If you have any other skills that you are free to share with us – gardening, sewing, baking etc – that you would greatly appreciated too!!


I look forward to meeting all the parents and carers over the next few days.  Do, please, come and introduce yourselves so I can put a face to the name. If you do need a chat please catch me in the mornings or if it requires more time and privacy please go to the office to book an appointment.


Kind Regards


Miss Kay Morrell
