This term PE will take place on a  Tuesday morning and a Friday afternoon. We shall be learning lots of skills to help us become ready for playing more sports in the juniors. Please ensure your child has he correct PE kit on a Tuesday and Friday -this includes pumps / trainers as we are now outside for PE on a Friday.


Writing equipment

Pupils shall be provided with pencils, rulers, rubbers and pencils sharpeners. Within class we have a selection of colouring pencils and felt tip pens.



Homework is still given on a Wednesday and due in on a Monday

The homework will mainly be using maths whizz to help reinforce what we have been learning in class and to give the children chance to practise their maths skills. If your child needs support I am happy for you to help, but please put a note on it to say how much guidance was given.

Reading books

Children should read as much as possible at home both from the reading scheme and from books they enjoy from home or from the library. In Year 2, children are encouraged to read for a minimum of 3 times per week for approximately 10 - 15 minutes. Please try and re-read the books and talk about them in more detail. They should look at the language or punctuation used, how it is laid out or what the characters are like as well as using their phonics to decode and look up any new words. Parents should record their comments on the cover sheet provided weekly in the yellow homework books.


If you have any concerns at all you can write us a note or make an appointment to come and see me. We are always happy to discuss any concerns or issues. Similarly if we have concerns or worries about your child, we will let you know. We feel it is important that your child is happy in the classroom so that they can achieve their full potential.
