Reading – Please try to hear your child read regularly and discuss the book.
Books will be changed on a Monday if the reading record is signed. They will usually be changed at least once more in the week. The reading scheme is only part of reading, any additional reading that your child does is very important.

Reading Schemes – Year 2 follow the letters and sounds phonics programme which is adapted to be in line with the 2014 national curriculum. Year 2 have access to several reading programmes. The main ones are:
Rigby Star, Storyworlds, New Way, Reading 360, Big Cat, Oxford Reading Tree, Project X.

Literacy – This will be sent on a Wednesday to be returned the following Monday.

Numeracy – This will be sent on a Friday to be returned the following Thursday.

Our PE lessons are on Wednesdays and Fridays.  The children need their kit in school every day in case sessions change. Please ensure all uniform is clearly labelled with their name.  If your child wears earrings they need to be able to remove them or cover them with tape. Long hair needs to be tied up.

Mid-morning snacks and drinks
Please make sure that your child has a named water bottle at school. Fruit or vegetables are provided daily at break time.
