Year 2M

Welcome to Year 2M!

Hello everyone! I am Miss Macleod and will be the Year 2 class teacher this year. This is my second year at Catchgate Primary School and I know all your children well through being the other Year 1 teacher last year! In my free time I enjoy watching football, spending time with my friends and family and taking my dog Ralphie on walks!

 

Weekly timetable

We would like to remind you to put names in all of your children's clothes and they are allowed a water bottle in class, this should also have a name on. Below you will find PE and Forest School information such as what your child needs for these sessions. It is important that they are prepared for these lessons as PE is statutory requirement for all children.

Our expectations!

 

Independence

We are encouraging the children to become more independent and to look after their own belongings,  You can help your child to do this by putting their name in all of their clothing.  As the weather gets warmer please continue to send your child to school wearing clothing for the weather and a coat as the weather can change quickly.

In Year 2 children will be expected to be more independent.
