Home reading 

We encourage the children to read as frequently as possible. Being a fluent reader has such a huge impact on learning and enjoyment across all subjects. Our school policy is to read at least 3 times every week and children will receive rewards after every tenth week to acknowledge their completion of home reading.  Please sign your child's reading diary every time they read and add a short comment if you wish. The children will be given a Read Write Inc book from their group teacher. They will also bring an additional book home to share with you.  

Homework will be set on a half termly basis - please support your child's learning by encouraging them to complete their home learning. The local library has lots of books to help but please let us know if you have any questions.  


The children will be taking part in PE lessons twice a week and some of these will be led by PE specialists.  Please could parents ensure that children have named PE kits and appropriate footwear in school at all times.  We will then send the kits home at the end of each half term for washing. Please ensure that your child either does not wear earrings on PE days or can take them out / cover them with their own tape. 

For the second half of Spring Term PE days are as follows:

                                        2JS - Tuesday and Friday

                                        2SFAB - Thursday (Footiebugs coaches)  and Friday


Year 2 Classes will be swimming in the summer term. Letters will be sent home with further details on.
