Year 2

Welcome to Year 2! 
 
Hello, My name is Mrs Kane and I'm the Year 2 teacher. I've been teaching for 14 years and joined King Street 5 years ago. I have experience of teaching from Nursery to Year 5. As well as being the Year 2 teacher, I am also the SENDCO (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Coordinator). 
 
When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and going for walks together. I'm a huge Harry Potter and Disney fan and enjoy going to the cinema and reading. 
 
This year, I am lucky enough to be moving from Year 1 to Year 2 with the class I taught last year. I'm looking forward to seeing what exciting learning opportunities this year brings. 
 
 Mrs Gamsby is the teaching assistant in Year 2. She enjoys walking with her dog and being outdoors. 
Home Learning
 
Here are some resources and ideas for activities you can do at home.

SumDog - www.Sumdog.com  Everyone has a log in. How many questions can you answer? (If you have any problems with your log in details, email school and we will help you sort it out)

Write a diary about the things you are doing at home. 
Write a letter to a friend.

P.E 
 
This term, P.E is on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school so they can take part. Our focus for this term is gymnastics and dance. 
 
 
Outdoor Education
 
At King Street, we work with the Real Adventure Through Sports (RATS). Our class is split into 3 groups and each group will take it in turns to go out for the full day to different destinations around the North East. This will take place every Tuesday. These experiences will be based around our current topic - Land and Living. Photos will be uploaded onto the gallery page.
