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.
All children in Year 2 need to have full indoor and outdoor PE kits in school at all times. A list of the items needed can be found in the uniform list in the parents section of this website. PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but kits may be needed at other times during the week. Please ensure all items of PE kit are clearly labelled to avoid items going missing.
Homework will be sent home in the Home Learning Diaries every Wednesday to be returned by the following Tuesday. Our homework will consist of a Maths and an English task which will be appropriate for the children's current stage in their learning. Homework tasks are an opportunity for your child to practise new skills and therefore we encourage the children to try and complete these independently.
All children have been sent home with a reading book. 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 - more information has been included in the front of the Home Learning Diary.
Year 2 will visit the school library each Monday afternoon. All children will have the opportunity to enjoy reading a range of books whilst in the library and can borrow books to take home too. We ask that all books are carefully looked after whilst at home and only one book at a time can be borrowed. Outstanding books must be returned before another one can be issued.
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 for £1.50, or you can provide one from home - please ensure your child's name is clearly written on their water bottle.
Snack remains at 20p for a slice or toast or a bag of fruit. Snack money and purses are kept in the children bags inside our class cloakroom to keep it safe during the day.
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.
