Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school at all times, including plimsolls.
On our swimming day please ensure your child has a full swimming kit with a swimming hat - these can be purchased
from the school office.  For both PE and swimming please make sure that earrings are taken out due to health and safety.

All personal belongings and clothing should be clearly labelled with your child's name.

Children in Year 2 will bring a reading book home every night.
Please return your child's reading book and record to school everyday so that we can monitor progress.
Your child's reading will improve significantly with daily reading practise at home, please remember a very important part of reading is talking about the book.

Home Learning
Children will have Home Learning sent home each week on a Friday relating to their maths learning in class. They will also bring home a spelling detective sheet to have fun exploring sounds in words.
Each child has their own plastic folder for their home learning,
please ensure this is returned each week .
