If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ring the office and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Please see the parent handbook for any queries around Covid 19.
We want to take the opportunity to thank you for your support and patience as we have worked out the best way to dismiss the children at the end of the day. The children will line up as a class. Their class teacher will go to a gate each (holding a sign with the class name). The teacher will call the children forward and release them to their grown-ups one at a time. Please try to refrain from shouting you child’s name as the children have been told to stay in their line until their teacher calls them forward.
Children are being asked to wash their hands with soap regularly throughout the day. The children all have their own equipment and they are being encouraged to stay apart and not touch one another. Unfortunately, children won’t be able to bring in cake or treats from home on their birthday at the moment.
If you have any messages you need us to know please ring or email and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We will also ring you at the end of the day (once the children have all been dismissed) if there are any things we need to discuss with you about your child’s day.
In the event on a bubble closure, work will be uploaded to seesaw and online learning will be provided.
We are currently reading Salty dogs in class. The children are really enjoying it! They will each receive a copy of the book that they will be able to keep. Ask your child what they love about the story.
Reading at home
In Year 2, it is important that you read with your child at least 3 times a week and sign their reading record. Children must have it signed to gain their sticker for the sticker chart. Children who read 5 times a week can earn 2 stickers towards a reading reward. A member of the Year 2 team will check reading records daily, so please ensure that reading records are returned to school each morning. Books will be changed once a week on an allotted day. In the front of their reading diary, you will find the day they change their book weekly. Every child has been given a yellow folder for their reading books and diaries. Please bring the folders to school every day.
Children will be given spellings to learn each Friday, spellings should be practised at home each night ready for a spelling test the following Friday. Children who get full marks on the test will receive a celebratory certificate to bring home. We will upload the spellings to seesaw every week.
In Year 2, children are beginning to learn their multiplication table facts for 2, 5, 10 and 3. Please support your child in regularly accessing ttrockstars to help develop their number fluency. If you need support logging in, please speak to a member of the team.
Children are to come to school in their PE on a Friday and Monday.
A gentle reminder that our school P.E. kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps or trainers for outdoor sports, without visible branding. Some P.E. sessions may take place outside so you are welcome to send in long black jogging bottoms and a long sleeved white top.
Don't forget to bring a water bottle to school each day - it is important for children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please label bottles and refill them each day.
Children are welcome to bring a healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables to school each day for snack time, but are also offered a piece of fruit from school each day. Please don’t send in nuts due to children in school with allergies. Bread sticks and milk can be purchased at the start of each half-term (please speak to the school office about this.)
