Mrs Leeson and Miss Hornsey
Welcome to 1EL's webpage!
We are a happy and enthusiastic group of year 2 children who love to explore and learn new things.
Mrs Leeson teaches us on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and Miss Hornsey works with us every day and she teaches us all day on Wednesdays and Monday afternoons.
Please send your child's water bottle in with them every day- they need enough water to last the whole day if possible. We will send them home every afternoon to be washed, refilled and returned the following day - plain water only please.
Your child will have English and maths homework to complete each week. This needs to be handed in each Wednesday and will be given back on Fridays.
Each week your child will be given a set of spellings to practise. They need to complete this on the sheet provided and also write a sentence with each of the words. The children should hand these in on Fridays. The children will be tested on their spellings on Fridays. Your child's score will be recorded in their planner each week.
The children are able to change their school reading book on Mondays and Fridays. It is important that the children read as much as possible and we ask that the children read at least is three times a week - planners will be checked each Monday.
Our belongings: Please name all your child's belonging. We do try to ensure your child returns home with all their belongings and your help with this is much appreciated.
Please do ask if you have any questions.
