Welcome to Puffin Class

Our class teacher is Miss Foster and our teaching assistant is Mrs Wright


If you need any support with any home learning, you can email me at puffin@st-georges-mossley.tameside.sch.uk 


Dear Puffins,

I hope you've had a lovely week and have enjoyed completing your home learning tasks. 

In school, the Kingfisher bubble have been busy with all their work. The children particularly enjoyed making their puppet shows. We had shows that told the story of dolphins swimming in the sea to Ruby deep diving to collect rubies! 

Please remember to send me any work you complete. I'd love to see all the hard work you're putting in at home.


Don't forget about the photograph competition that the PTA have created. It's a fabulous opportunity to show off your skills.

Missing you all,

Miss Foster x

Expectations for reading at home

Reading at home is very important in helping your child to learn new vocabulary and improve their spelling. Reading lets us explore new worlds and opens up our imagination.

It is our expectation that children will read their reading books at least four times each week and each time it will be signed by the grown up they have read with. In year two, each time the children have read they will earn a sticker on their chart. Once they have completed a chart they will earn a raffle ticket. At the end of each term they will be entered into a raffle to win a book hamper.

Reading books and records should be in school daily and will be changed on a Monday and Thursday.

We now have access to Rising Stars online. All children have come home with their log in details. Once they log in they will find their books assigned to them. There are a lot of books! The aim is not to read them as quickly as possible but to support comprehension at home. An expected reader is someone who is fluent and has a good understanding of what they have read.



Every Tuesday the children will bring home their homework. It needs to be returned the following Monday.
They will receive spellings and a reading book. Each week we will alternate between a Maths and an English task.


Each week ten spellings will be sent home for the children to learn and practise. These will be a mixture of the spelling pattern we are currently learning and the year two common exception words. Below is a list of all the common exception words we will be learning throughout the year. Children also need to read and write all of the numbers up to one hundred confidently.


In year two we will begin to learn our timestables. 
Every child has been given a login to Times Tables Rockstars. To log in click on the link below. To access the website make sure you type the school name in as it is below otherwise it won't find St George's.
