Gazelle - Year 2

Welcome to Gazelle Class!!


Teacher: Mrs McLauchlan

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Thornton and Mrs Stokel

Lunch duty: Mrs Stokel and Mrs Taylor


We have an amazing year ahead of us in Gazelle Class, with fabulous topics planned to inspire your child’s learning. Updates on our work and activities will be posted here to share at home.


Key information:

Reading: Reading at home helps to develop a love of books and reading, whilst increasing your child’s vocabulary confidence. We recommend reading at home, to or with, your child for at least 10 minutes every day. Their Reading Record should be used to reflect the reading you are doing, including the phonics practice books sent home, to help us support your child’s reading and exposure to different genres and subjects whilst in class. Please ensure your child’s Reading Record comes to school each day.

Drink & Snack: Your child should have a water bottle in school every day. We provide a free healthy fruit snack in class at morning break.

PE Kits: Please send your child’s full PE kit to school on Monday, and take it home on a Friday. Occasionally, the timetabling for PE and physical activities may change, for example to accommodate weather conditions. Please ensure that all PE kit is named. It can be really useful to have spare pants, socks and/or tights available in the kit bag, in order that we can make your child comfortable during school time.


The Year 2 team are very excited to meet you all and to get started on our learning journey together. We really value the chance to share your thoughts, celebrations and concerns. If it more than a quick question at school drop-off or collection, please send an email or arrange an appointment through the School Office. If there is an issue that we need to discuss further, the teacher will phone after 3:30pm on the same day wherever possible, using the contact number left with the Office.
