Mrs Austwick

Welcome to Y2!

Cormorant's class teacher is Mrs Austwick and our LSA is Mrs Williams.                               Kingfisher's class teacher is Miss Garcia and our LSA is Mrs Sunderland.


We are feeling very lucky to be teaching such a fabulous group of children.

Together we will be working hard to get each and every individual child in our class to reach their full potential.

We have a very fun and busy year ahead and we are excited to watch you all learn and grow.


Important Information

Our school day starts at 8:25am and finishes at 3pm. Children will enter and exit through the Fire Exit door. 

PE is on Fridays. Please come in school PE kit which is white t-shirt, black or navy leggings or joggers, trainers or plimsolls and a warm jacket for winter.


Children need to bring a water bottle every day these can be kept by our sink. Children have a piece of fruit daily and if you would like your child to have a carton of milk you can sign up for this on (or ask at the office if you need help)

Reading books for all groups are sent home daily. Please read with your children at least 3 times a week and sign their reading record. This will be shown to their reading teacher and children will earn an achievement stamp for 3 reads. Some children will have weekly spellings depending on their reading group.

There will be online homework set on Purple Mash.


Maths Autumn 1

Place Value: This will include representing numbers to 100, ordering and comparing numbers, representing numbers on a place value grid and counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. We use a range of maths equipment to support our learning before moving our learning on to include more pictoral and abstract methods. We do a Maths Meeting 3 times a week where we cover a range of different areas of maths. 

Here are also some good websites we are enjoying ad a class, you may want to give them a go at home: (Daily 10: select Level 2, Partitioning)

English Autumn 1

By the end of the first unit, the children will be writing their own wishing tale. We will be sequencing and retelling the story of The Magic Paintbrush. We will remember to use capital letters and full stops and use different sentence types: Questioning and Exclamation sentences.

Topic Autumn 1

We are excited to begin the year with Muck, Mess and Mixtures! This topic is fun filled with lots of art lessons. We will begin by experimenting and mixing colours using a colour wheel. Then we will focus on two artists, Henri Matisse and Kurt Schwitters and recreate some of their famous collages.


I am always on the door first thing in the morning and there will always be an adult there at the end of the day, either myself or Mrs Williams :)  Please do not hesitate to come and speak to us if you have any questions. Watch out for more updates on this page!
