New Year 2 Transition Task – Monday 6th July

Good morning Year 1,

I hope that everyone is well and has had a lovely weekend.

Very soon you will be in Year 2, I’m Mrs Gourley and I will be your teacher in September. I’m really looking forward to teaching you and getting to know you all. Miss O’Sullivan and Miss Wilson have told me some wonderful things about you.

Today I’m going to set you your home learning tasks. There are 2 tasks to complete.

Task 1

I know you all by name, but I don’t know much about you. So today,I’d like to find out as much as I can about you. To help get you started and so that you can get to know me a little bit more, I thought I’d send you some information about me.

You can read the information I’ve written.

All about Mrs Gourley

To help me find out about you, can you write some sentences about yourself? Print off the sheet below and tell me some interesting things. You could include some of the information from the questions below;

  • What’s your name?
  • Where do you live?
  • Do you have any brother or sisters?
  • Do you have any pets?
  • What’s your favourite food?
  • What do you like to do?

All about me

Once you have completed your sentences you could get an adult to help you photograph your work and send it by email to me or you might want to do your sentences on the computer and email these to me. The choice is yours! The email address to send it to is . I look forward to reading all about you!

Task 2

I’m sure that you are all very curious about Year 2. You’ll be thinking about the things we’ll learn about and the fun things we do. Watch the video below that shows some highlights of Year 2.

I’d then like you to think of a question you may have about Year 2 and write it in the comments section of this post. I’ll keep checking the website and answering your questions as frequently as possible.

Have a wonderful day and I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday morning.

Mrs Gourley 🙂

  1. Thanks for the lovely transition tasks. Ethan would like to know if Mrs Humble will be his teacher too and what kind of books to read do you have in your classroom?

    • Hello Ethan,
      Thank you for your question. Yes, Mrs Humble will be in Year 2 too. We have lots of books in our classroom. We have a wide selection of story books and many information books too. There are information books about animals, insects, science, space, dinosaurs and oceans. We also have lots of books linked to our topics that we get out too. I’m sure you’ll enjoying reading them. Enjoy the rest of your day. Mrs Gourley 🙂

  2. Hi & thank you for the slideshows and task. Poppy would like to know if she will do the same things as the other year 2 children did in the slideshow and will they get lots of time in the outdoor area?

    • Hello Poppy,
      What fantastic questions!
      Yes we’ll try to do the things that all the children in the slideshow did and we’ll try to get as much time as possible in the outdoor area. We have lots of activities and games that we play out there.
      I’m looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
