Mr Neilson

Welcome to Class 2

Welcome back to a new school year!

I am really looking forward to being back in the classroom with the children. Although Year 1 didn’t end quite as we’d hoped, it will be so good for the children to see each other again and continue their learning back at school. You or your children may be feeling anxious about the return, but rest assured that we have made lots of changes to help keep us safe, as Miss Wilson has already informed you. Please bear with us while we get used to the new systems and make any more changes that we need to. We will keep you informed along the way!

I am Mr Neilson and I have been the Year 2 teacher for several years. Working with me will be Miss Castle, who worked with the children last year and knows them well; and Miss Cummings, who has worked in Year 2 before and is looking forward to working with this new class. Miss Sykes and I have had lots of discussions about the transition to Year 2 and although the children didn’t finish their year as normal, I know how well they were doing and am hopeful that we will be able to get back to it quickly.

Another thing I always like to work on in Year 2 is fostering the children’s independence and confidence. Our class expectations are:

Show respect

Use your head

Do your best and persevere

Look after things

We appreciate your support with these, as well as reading at home with your child frequently; helping them with their homework and making sure they bring everything they need into school.

This term will be more demanding than usual, but if we all work hard then I am sure that the children will shine! Miss Sykes had lots of positive things to say about the children’s attitudes and behaviour, which is fantastic. I am excited for the year ahead!
