My name is Miss Lambourne and this is my third year of teaching Year 2 at St Simon's. Helping us in Year 2 each morning is Mrs Beswick and every afternoon is Miss Newby.  


We’ve had an exciting first ten weeks in Year 2 learning all about our local area of Hazel Grove. Over the next ten weeks we will be investigating the topic of ‘Amazing Africa!’ We will be particularly focusing on the country of Uganda so if you have any interesting artefacts or items you would like to send in, we would love to see them! 


We will be doing outdoor P.E every Monday and indoor P.E every Thursday. The children will need to make sure they have the correct P.E kit in school for both days. P.E kit will be sent home at the end of every half term for a good wash!



In Year 2, we recommend that every child reads for 10 minutes every day, building up to 20 minutes as the children approach the start of Key Stage 2. The children will have the opportunity to change their reading books every Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child’s reading record is signed once they have finished their book in order that it can be changed on these days.


The children will receive 8 spellings to practise a week. These will be sent home every Monday and tested the following Monday.



Maths (set online via EducationCity) and English (provided in our Year 2 homework books) will be given every Friday and should be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday.

If you have any queries at all, please feel free to speak to me before or after school, or drop me a message on Class Dojo.

Kind regards,
Miss Lambourne
