Year 2

Welcome to Year 2


We would like to say a warm welcome to all our new Year 2 children and parents. Your children are now in their third year of primary school and we are very excited to be working with them as they learn lots of new things during this next year. We have listed some key information for Year 2 below which we hope will be useful to you.


PE Kits:

Children are asked to attend school on their PE days in full outdoor PE kit.  We will keep you all informed of our PE days through Class Dojo and our school newsletter as the day may change for a half term depending on whether we are working with the South Ribble Schools Partnership Coaches. Please ensure all items of PE kit are clearly labelled to avoid items going missing.



Homework will be assigned on EdShed each Tuesday. For those who are unable to access EdShed, paper copies will be sent home in reading packs each Tuesday. Our homework will consist of a Maths challenge and an English spelling task which will be appropriate for the children's current stage in their learning. Homework tasks are an opportunity for your child to practise recap skills and therefore we encourage the children to try and complete these independently.


Reading Books:

Home reading books will be collected every Monday.  Reading books will be changed once your child has completed the book and it has been signed off by an adult in their Home Learning Diary.    


Water Bottles:

We encourage the children to bring in water bottles filled with fresh water each day (no juice please). Children will be allowed to drink regularly throughout the day to avoid dehydration and support concentration. Water bottles can be purchased from the school office, or you can provide one from home - please ensure your child's name is clearly written on their water bottle.



Snack remains at 20p per day for a slice of toast. Payment can be made through the office or via parent pay for the half or full term. 



If you would like your child to have a carton of milk each day, you will need to register with 'Cool Milk'. The price is around £5 per term - for more information, please contact the office.


We will regularly update this webpage with details and information of all the exciting work we will be getting up to over the year. However, if you have any questions or would like to talk to us please catch us after school or contact the school office.
