Welcome To Kingfishers!
The Kingfishers have made such a positive start to the new school year! I am so
proud that everyone has embraced year two's routines and are being excellent role models to our younger pupils. In class we have been focussing on our B rules and ASPIRE values, which are at the heart of everything we do at Willow Primary School.
I look forward to working as a team to have a super year!
Our reading area...
Mrs Garvey and Mrs Singh have been working hard over the summer to update the reading corner in the Year 2 shared area. We think the children will really enjoy using this area.
Reading at home
Please encourage your child to read at home every night. They should be bringing their reading folder home every day from school. We will be changing their books once the children have read their book three times, so please ensure they have been signed to say that you have listened to them.
Communication with Mrs Garvey
Please use our class email firstname.lastname@example.org to communicate with us. Please remember to write in the subject field Kingfishers or Robins so that the corresponding teacher can pick up the emails.
