Welcome to Miss Wright's Dolphins class page. This is my second year as a teacher and I am thrilled to be teaching in Year 2 at Longmoor Primary School. I am really excited for the year we have ahead of us, with so many exciting topics to learn and experiences to share. After such a strange end to last year, and now being the oldest of the infants, the children will have to work hard in year 2, but with the support of the school and their own desire to do their best, it will be a great year, full of growth, determination and fun.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that children have their indoor and outdoor PE kits in school for these days, and that any earrings have been removed ready for their lessons.
Homework will be given out on a Thursday and must be returned by Tuesday.
I look forward to getting to know you all throughout the year.

At the end of year 2 children will be undertaking SATs tests within school. Although these are statutory tests, children will be reassured that it is just a chance to show what they know and try their best, not something to worry over.
This link provides an overview for parents about what the 2019 SATs covered:
The class are all completing their reading challenge. Every time they read 10 times with an adult they move around the dolphins reading challenge. When they reach 40 reads, they can choose a brand new book to keep from Mrs Dainty!
A list of example questions can be found below which help to greater develop children's understanding when reading.
WHISPER - Anonymous Reporting Tool
Sometimes it is really hard to tell an adult if you feel like you are being bullied. That is why we have subscribed to WHISPER. It is an anonymous reporting tool which allows you or your child to report any incidents of bullying and cyber bullying in confidence.
Click on the web link below to fill in a report. It will then be emailed to Miss Hughes (Online Safety Coordinator). Messages are checked as often as possible. In order to resolve issues effectively and promptly, please include your name. This will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
If you have any concerns or worries about your child regarding online safety and would like further advice, please contact Miss Hughes or Mr Lyons, the school's online safety co-ordinators or speak to Mrs Dainty, Headteacher.
