Please make sure children have PE kits in school. PE for Y2 will now be on Fridays and they will have swimming lessons on Wednesday afternoons at Zest.

They should not be wearing jewellery on PE days and need to tie back long hair. It is helpful if children have their PE kit and uniform labelled with their name.

Sports club will continue after school on Tuesdays  from 3.15 - 4.15pm in the sports hall. All Y2's are welcome but parents need to sign a letter. Now the athletics competition is over, we will be doing a range of different games. We are lucky to have some of the older children helping out at the club.

Please make sure your child has a water bottle in school, as it is important that they stay hydrated throughout the day!

Children need to read at home on a regular basis, either using ‘Bugclub’ or taking reading books home from school.


Please make comments in the reading record books and we will try to respond to any concerns.

Y2 children will also receive spellings each week from their phonics teacher. Please check that your child knows his/her spellings for tests on Mondays.

Other homework will usually be sent home on Fridays and is expected back before the next Thursday. The children need to continue to practise counting in 10's, 2's, 5's and 3's and also to learn the times table facts.Image result for times tables
