A caring place to Learn and Grow

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


We hope that you had a lovely summer break. It is so lovely to see the children back in school and things looking more 'normal'.


Please make sure that your child has an indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times. Also, for health and safety reasons, children are not allowed to wear earrings or any other jewellery for PE . If your child is unable to remove their earrings themselves could you please send them to school without them on PE days. PE days are as follows:

Mrs Johnson's class Monday outdoor and Thursday indoor,

Miss Bonich/Miss Flemming Monday outdoor and Friday indoor.


Homework will be given out on Thursdays and will need to be returned by the following Tuesday. The children have an orange exercise book that they can either write in or stick worksheets in. Please try to spend about 20 minutes on each subject and encourage to present their work as neatly as they can. If you have any problems with homework please let us know.


We provide the children with a fruit or vegetable snack for playtime. Unfortunately we have no control over what is delivered so if your child only likes a particular fruit or vegetable they can bring in a snack from home. Please only send in fruit or vegetables.


The children will be doing a phonics screening test during the week commencing 22nd November. There will be a zoom workshop on Wednesday 29th September at 3:45. The details have been sent from the school office.
