Hello and welcome to the Class Two homepage. The team working in Class Two are Mr Dean, Miss Goodwin and Miss Duncan. We are very excited for the year ahead and we will keep you updated on the children’s learning on the Chatter Feed on the right hand side of this page.

We use Seesaw to update you on your child’s progress and learning, when you log on you will see snapshots of some of the activities we take part in in class. We expect all parents to interact with posts on Seesaw and to work with their child on activities set at home.

Reading is fundamental to a child’s progress. It helps to introduce your child to new words and increase their vocabulary. We recommend that parents read with their child daily. It helps to spark imagination and plays a crucial role in speech development which introduces children to the world around them and new concepts. We expect all parents to read with their child and make notes at least once a week.

If you have any problems accessing Seesaw or the Monster Phonics e-books, please contact us using the parentmail@pleasantstreet.liverpool.sch.uk email address and we will try to support you.

PE – Friday – The children should wear PE kits into school on this day.

Seesaw Activities – Activities are posted on Seesaw every Friday for you to view and complete at home with your child.
