Welcome to year 2’s class page. Here we will keep you updated with all of our amazing learning over the year. At the bottom of this page you will find documents and links that you may find useful to support your child’s learning at home.
Our P.E lessons will take place on a Wednesday. Children are to come to school wearing their P.E kits. Please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather. Our school P.E kit consists of a team coloured t-shirt, blue shorts and pumps. Children are allowed to wear jogging bottoms, a jacket and trainers for outdoor P.E lessons. Hair should be tied back and no jewellery should be worn.
Forest School and Outdoor Adventures
Year 2 will be taking part in Forest School and Outdoor Adventure sessions every Wednesday afternoon. As Forest School will be taking part outdoors, we ask that your child brings an old Hooded top / fleece or thick jumper, thick socks (or 2 pairs of normal ones), waterproof jacket, waterproof trousers (bodysuit), wellies, hat, gloves and scarf. On this day, your child will also be doing PE, so please come to school in PE kit as usual and we will get changed into Forest School kit in the afternoon. Please remember that your child may finish the session wet and dirty but will have had a lot of fun!
Weekly Home Learning Expectations
Children are expected to:
- Read at least 4 times per week – this should be recorded in their reading diary to enable them to earn points (diaries to be signed and brought in everyday). They can read their phonics words and phonics books (available on the Oxford Owl website). Any reading free choice books to be recorded in their diaries also.
- Practise their year group spellings - to be tested each half term in the Spelling Bee.

We appreciate all of your support with homework, please help your child complete as much as possible to help them earn lots of points!
Breakfast and Tuck
Bagels are provided first thing in the morning when your child arrives at school. These are free of charge and all children can help themselves if they would like one.
Children can then order tuck for morning break. We offer:
- Toast – 20p
- Fruit – 20p
- Raisins – 20p
- Juice (orange, forest fruits or apple) – 25p
Tuck will not be ordered if the child has no money with them.
Children are responsible for looking after their own belongings. Please make sure your child’s name is on all of their belongings clearly to avoid confusion and the mix up of items. Thank you.
