Welcome to Chestnut Class


Hello! My name is Miss Wheatley - Yates and I am the class teacher in Chestnut Class. I hope you are excited to be a member of Year 2 and are ready for the challenges ahead.


Please check the class blog weekly for updates from the children on what they have been learning that week.


Also, if you haven't already, please follow us on Twitter @longshawinfants to keep up with all the exciting things happening at school. 



 Before we start the year and dive in to a new topic consider these things...


  • What are you most looking forward to in Year 2?
  • Have you any worries about year 2?
  • What do you want to get better at this year?
  • What do you want to learn about this year?



Please ensure that your child's book bag is in school every day.  Please read with your child every night and discuss what you have read.  You do not need to read the whole book at once. Reading books will be changed three times a week but only if your child has had two good reads of their book.


Homework is given out on a Friday and will reflect the work that the children have completed in class, it will then be collected in on the following Thursday.

If there is a problem or you have any questions about the homework, then please do not hesitate to come and speak to me about it. 

Physical Education

The children will have 2 PE lessons a week, including a specialist FUNDA session. Please, please ensure all your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their full name. PE kits will be sent home at the end of every half term for you to wash. Please ensure they are back in school during the first week back.


 Thank you for your continued support with your child's learning.
