Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 - Spring Term 2019

Please remember to visit the Year 2 page regularly for news, updates and useful ideas to help you support your child
Year 2 Projects
You should have found, in your child's book bag, a letter about Year 2 Projects and a book in which to present their work.
There is no need to fill the whole book, but we do hope that the children will take care and be proud of the work they produce.
We will share these books with the class and across the year group.

An important reminder to all parents of children currently in Year 2 that the deadline for applying for a Year 3 place in Junior School is next week - Tuesday 15th January. Please visit : www.surreycc.gov.uk/primaryadmissions for more information.
POLITE REMINDER - WATER BOTTLES
Please make sure that water bottles contain WATER ONLY.
We believe that it is important for children to be well hydrated throughout the day, and drinking water regularly is the best way of doing this.
We encourage the children to be "sugar smart", so we ask you NOT to send in sweet drinks such as fruit squash.
Water spills are also much easier to clean up in the event of accidental spills!
Homework
Spelling and Maths homework will be issued by the end of each week (usually on a Thursday). Please return books to school by the following Wednesday.
Do take time to work with your child on these tasks. The value is in the discussions you will have, which will reinforce key concepts and understanding.
Occasionally we will post other tasks and ideas for leaning on this page, so please check regularly. (See below for Science!)

IMPORTANT REMINDERS -
What to bring each day:
Book bag, a transparent/ translucent water bottle (water only please!) and a coat  - we try to take the children outside in all weathers, unless there is a torrential downpour.
Please make sure ALL items are clearly named!
 
PE Reminders
Please check that trainers still fit and that all PE kit, sweatshirts and other belongings are clearly named.
Please make sure that you remove earrings on PE days as children will not be permitted to take part in PE lessons if they are wearing earrings (for safety reasons).
Long hair should be tied back at all times in school.
Please provide a pair of socks to keep in your child's PE bag to change into if your child wears tights to school. (It can also be useful to have a change of socks if footwear gets a bit soggy in rainy weather!)
Brown joggers (available from Brenda's) or other plain dark coloured joggers may be worn for outdoor PE lessons if the weather is cooler.

Saftey Notice!

Please DO NOT allow children to play on the playground ship before or after school.
The children know that it must only be used with the supervision of our school staff.
We would be grateful for your support in reinforcing this rule with your children.
