Reading Books

Due to COVID 19 guidance we have to allow the books 72 hours to quarantine before giving new books out. Please only return your child’s book bag on a Friday! 

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.

Latest news ...    


Our new class reader is The Giraffe the Pelly and me by Roald Dahl. 

I wonder what will happen ?




PE days for Year 2 

PE will be on a Monday and a Tuesday. 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
