Welcome to Year 2!
The curriculum for this half term is based on the theme, “The Great Fire”. This topic involves work in all the core and foundation subjects outlined in the Primary National Curriculum.
Your child will receive homework each week to support their classroom learning. Homework folders will be given out each Tuesday and collected the following Monday. Weekly homework will include reading, spellings (tested the following Monday), English, maths and talk homework. If you have any concerns or questions about your child’s homework please feel free to contact us. Your support with homework will be a great help.
PE lessons will take place on Wednesday and Thursday
Kit consists of; a school t-shirt, navy/black shorts, trainers. Children will also need a jumper and jogging bottoms as the weather becomes colder. School hoodies are available from Motif8.
We do not have spare kit in school so it is essential that children come equipped for every PE lesson. To help with this, we suggest your child keeps their PE kit in school and we will send it home at holiday times for cleaning.
After School Clubs
As usual, there will be many after school clubs starting up. It is important that your child attends any club they have signed up for each week. If they cannot attend for a particular reason, please inform school by phone or provide a written note. Please make sure your child is collected on time. All dates for each club are provided at the beginning of each half term and are payable through Parent Mail. Any questions or queries about clubs please contact the school office.
As your child is in Year 2, they are entitled to a free healthy snack each day. We also recommend your child has a water bottle in school to keep them hydrated throughout the day.
Year 2 SATs
This year, Year 2 SATs will take place in May. This is a very important time for your child as these are end of key stage Statutory Attainment Tests. Please avoid booking family holidays around this time as they will not be authorised.
Each year we collect a large pile of clothing that we are unable to give back to the rightful owner due to them being unnamed. Please ensure you name ALL of your child belongings. If you have lost something, you may find it in the clothing bucket in the Year 2 classrooms.
Please remember that all key dates of latest school news can be found on our School Facebook page and website and Term Card.
Thank you for your continued support and happy new school year!
