Every night: reading and discussion of the book with an adult, number bonds.

Friday: English and Maths (due in following Wednesday) plus spellings (for test the following Friday).


Parental Involvement


We welcome the support of parents both at home and in school and we are always looking for adults to help children in school with their reading. Year 2 is a very important year and we ask that your child reads nightly and that you discuss the book with them. Regularly practising their times tables and number bonds will give your child more confidence in class and it can be fun to look for opportunities for maths outside of school such a measuring ingredients, timing things, looking for shapes and solving logic problems.  We would also love for you to join us in school at our special events.


​P.E. Days


P.E. days are subject to change. Please make sure your child always has their kit in school. Kits will be sent home at half term for a wash!
