Important days and key events:



Children are expected to read daily at home. Children will be issued with reading books along with a reading record and these must be brought into school every day. Please ensure that when your child reads at home that you sign their reading record so their reads can be counted for our reading challenge! Reading books will be changed approximately 2/3 times a week (if needed). Please try to listen to your child read as often as you can at home and ask them lots of questions about the text. It is important for children to be able to master their understanding of what they have read through questioning.  Please see link below for questions to help with children's reading comprehension at home. 



Homework tasks will be set on IXL every Friday and due to be completed by the following Wednesday.  Usernames and passwords along with instructions have been sent home with the children inside their reading records.



Class 5's weekly spelling test is on a Friday. A list of new spellings to practice for the following week will also be given on this day in your child's orange book. Please remember to bring your spelling book to school every Friday! 📝 Children can practice their spellings on a separate piece of paper (orange books should only be used in school for the test) and on Spellingframe. Usernames and passwords along have been sent home with the children inside their reading records.


Times Table Rockstars

In Year 2, all children have access to Times Table Rockstars.

Login details will be stuck on the inside of their reading records. Please log on and practise as much as you can. Quick recall of times table facts is important when working mathematically.



PE lessons will take place on Tuesday and Friday every week. Our PE kit is: a white PE top, black tracksuit bottoms (no leggings please), trainers, socks and a waterproof jacket/coat. Please come to school dressed in full PE kit on a Tuesday and Friday.
