Y2 - Mrs O'Connor 2023 - 2024

Mrs O'Connor

My name is Mrs O'Connor and I teach Year 2 with support from Mrs Ward. I have been teaching since 2007 and have taught at schools in Sefton and Liverpool before I joined the fantastic Northway team in 2016. I have an undergraduate degree in French and a PGCE in Primary Education. When I'm not in school, I enjoy taking my dog, Charlie, for long walks on the beach. Alongside Mrs Reardon, I am responsible for leading Maths across our school.

The best place to see what we have been up to in class and with our learning is on our Twitter. Our Twitter handle is @northwaymaghull. You can filter your search by using #y2 or search for a specific subject, e.g. #geography


Year 2 PE

PE lessons will usually take place on a Friday but please make sure your PE kit is in school at the beginning of every half term and stays in school. ALL pieces of clothing, including school uniform and shoes MUST be named. 


Water bottles

Please bring a clear, named reusable water bottle to school everyday, it should have a sports cap type lid and contain only water. 

Food and drink

Every child should have a clear plastic water bottle, containing only water (no juice or flavoured water etc.), that they can access at any time during the day. This bottle should be in addition to a lunch time drink, if they are on packed lunches. Your child may bring a nut free healthy snack for morning play. Please ensure that the snack is in their book bag so that they do not have to find it in their lunch bags.


Healthy snack

  • Fruit
  • Bread/toast

Infants also have access to fruit provided by the school.

We have children with anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition that is caused by a severe allergic reaction to nuts. We ask you to help us protect these children by sending snacks or items for packed lunch for your child that do not contain nuts. Thank you for your cooperation with this; it is very much appreciated by the families of the children. 


Home Learning

Inside your child's home reading diary is the username and password for them to access the resources below. These are useful sites for completing maths and English activities and to support learning at home. Please read regularly (at least three times per week) with your child and record their reading in their reading diary.
