Hello, I am Miss Naylor, I am the class teacher of 2N. I enjoy teaching English and I am the Topic Leader in the school.
I am currently working in year 2 as an ETA. My three children all attended St. Paulinus School so I have many happy memories of their time here. In school, I particularly enjoy helping the children with their reading.
Hello, I’m Mrs Harrison, I’ll be looking after your child’s education for the next academic year.

The children will need to continue to practise their spellings and timetables on a weekly basis. Spellings will be sent home to learn on a Friday and your child will be tested on the following Friday morning.
Homework will be either a piece of Maths or English. Homework will continue to be sent out on a Friday to be returned on or before the following Wednesday. It will build on what the children have been learning about in class.
Thank you for your continued support with reading. Please continue to send your child’s reading book on their reading day. Please remember to write in your child’s reading record to acknowledge you have listened to your child read. It is very important to check your child understands when reading. This can be achieved through some simple comprehension questions such as ‘Which character did…?’, ‘What do you think will happen next?’, ‘What do you think about…?’ etc. Please also remember you can also access Bug Club.
In Year 2 this Autumn Term we are visiting the Emergency services fire station in Sheffield to bring the Great Fire of London to life. This is very exciting and a good educational experience where we can develop our knowledge and learning (details to follow). Please see Year 2 teachers or Mrs Watt regarding any problems/payment.
