Our Golden Reward Children So Far Are ...


Hello Year 2 children, parents and guardians.

I am Mrs Weaving and I have taken over from Mr Evans and I will be working in Year 2 until the end of this academic year. 


We have already had a great first week! The children have all been superstars and have adapted to the new school term and change in circumstance really quickly.


We are going to have a great few weeks, with lots of learning and lots of fun!

We are reading Lila and the secret of rain where we will write a character description, a diary entry and our own story. We will then go on to look at different texts in order to write a report. After that, we will be concentrating on poetry! English lessons will be lots of fun this half term.smiley

Homework will be set on a Friday and can be returned the following Friday, please.

Spelling tests will happen on a Friday morning and new spelling lists will be issued on a Friday evening.

Spelling shed work and SUMDOG work will be set for a Friday and will be live for a week, to give you and your children time to complete the tasks/challenges set.

Topic homework will be given out at the beginning of the half term and collected in during the last week. You can choose to complete this work at your own pace as long as all pieces of work are completed.yes

Reading Books   

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal. 

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.

PE days for Year 2

PE will be on a Tuesday and a Friday . Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on those days

PE Kit = black pumps, white T-shirt or school T-shirt and black shorts. 


Remember earrings cannot be worn for PE and must be taped if unable to remove BEFORE school


Look what we have been up to so far this year...
