Class 2

Teachers – Miss Laing

Dear Class 2 Families, 

I hope you have had a wonderful summer holidays and managed to make the most of the sun on the few times it came out! My name is Phoebe Laing and I am really looking forward to being your child’s teacher this year. 

We have an exciting year planned and a beautiful new classroom to work in. I’d like to make you aware of a few routines in Class 2 which may be slightly different to Class 1. 

PE Days 

Our PE days this term are Tuesdays and Fridays. Miss Laing will teach PE on Tuesday and Mr Tyrell will teach PE on Friday. Please send your child into school in their PE kit on these days. 

Snack and Water Bottles 

All children will continue to be provided with their daily piece of fruit in the morning. However, please pack your child a spare fruity snack for their afternoon break. If there is any problems providing this, please let me know so I can help you. Please send your child into school on Monday with their water bottles and they will go back home with them on Friday. Fresh water is available every day. 

RWI Books 

On Thursdays, your child will be sent home with their new RWI book. Please document any reading that takes place at home and ensure RWI books and reading records come into school every day. They will also choose a book to love which will come home on Thursdays. 


Miss Laing will teach Class 2 Monday to Thursday. 

Mr Baxter will teacher Class 2 on Fridays. 

Mrs Martin will support Class 2 all day on Monday and Tuesday as well as Wednesday and Thursday mornings. 

If you have any questions or would like to arrange a meeting, please email me. 

Kind Regards, 

Miss Laing.
