Class Teacher: Miss Waites

ETAs: Mrs Rathmell and Mrs Rowe


Welcome to Gaudi Class, home of Year 2. This year, our class teacher is Miss Waites and working with her is Mrs Rathmell and Mrs Rowe. Here you'll find all the information you need to help your child progress throughout the year.

Due to current Covid restrictions, I am unable to meet with parents in school however, if you have any concerns or queries then please do drop me a message on Class Dojo or by email via the school office.



Please read regularly with your child at home, reading books will be changed once a week.

We are often asked whether there are any books which we can recommend for pupils. The website: shows lots of good choices for individual year groups.


Children will get a new set of spellings every week to practice. We will have a spelling test on a Friday.

Please see below a list of year one and two common exception words. These are words which children should be able to spell correctly in their writing. We haven't learnt them all yet so please don't worry if they don't know them yet.


We will continue to follow White Rose maths scheme throughout the year.

Alongside our teaching in school White Rose are continuing to provide home learning which you can access by clicking here.


Please also practice your timestables on TTRS, you can login here via this link.

Our first topic of the year is Pirates of the Carribean. We will kick off with a pirate day and then continue our learning to find out about some famous pirates and how they lived.



In science we will be focusing on every day materials and their properties. We will test out a range of materials to find out what material is suitable for different purposes.
