Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 - Autumn Term 2019

Please remember to visit the Year 2 page regularly for news, updates and useful ideas to help you support your child.
Wednesday 23rd October
Thank you for attending this week's Parent Interviews. We hope that you have found them useful and informative.
Don't forget to save the date for our forthcoming presentation on Reading on 13th November!

SCIENCE 26/9/19
The children have been asked to bring in a scan or photocopy of a picture of themselves as a baby. We will be doing a guess the identity game before half-term and so would like to receive photos on either Wednesday  2nd or 9th October. Please place in an envelope marked simply 'Baby Photo' and only write the name of the child on the back of the photo.  Many thanks for your support.



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!
We will issue a copy of our weekly timetable shortly on this page.
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.

Safety 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.


A Polite reminder about 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!


Numeracy Map
You can download the FREE app "Numeracy Map" on your ipad or tablet. Children can work at their own pace and move through the levels as they progress. Increase your child's number fluency and support them in meeting the expectations in Maths at the end of Year 2!
