Hello everyone, 


Welcome to Year Two! We hope you have had a lovely summer holiday. We cannot wait to hear all about it when you return to school on Monday. We are very excited to see you all :) 

Arriving at school
Children will be met by their teachers in the playground at the beginning of the day and returned to
parents in the same place at the end of the day. The arrangements are as follows:

Class 5: Pedestrian gate by the school car park, walk around the hall and wait in the playground outside of class 5. Your teacher will meet the children in the morning and bring the children out to parents at the end of the day.


Class 6: Through the main pedestrian school gate, across the front patio to the gate to meet their teacher and to be handed back at the end of the day.

All children to arrive on site from 8.35 to meet their teacher at 8.45am. All Classes to leave at 3.25pm from
their entry/exit gate. 

Reminders for the term: 
Homework will be sent home every Friday and needs to be returned the following Thursday. It will be posted onto google classrooms each week. Homework will consist of learning the spelling rule and also a task relating to our learning that week. Children are also encouraged to use spelling shed and times table rock stars. We will provide children with their logins when they return to school. 

Children will be taught a spelling rule during the week and it will be their task to learn that rule for their homework. On Fridays we will then test the children on that spelling rule.

We will be encouraging children to read four times a week at home. Please ensure you record this in your child's reading record. We will check the reading records each week to see which children have read four times, these children will then receive a raffle ticket with a chance to win a prize at the end of the term. The class which have the highest number of children reading four times will receive a trophy during our assembly.
