Year 2 will have Forest School every Wednesday morning this term (until February half term). Your child can wear their Forest School clothes to school. Long sleeves, waterproofs, coats and wellies are advised at this time of year. Please pack uniform so that the children can change before lunchtime.
We will not be going to Frogmore on a Friday this term due to Forest School sessions.
PE this term will be on a Thursday afternoon (Gymnastics). This will take place indoors so please provide navy PE shorts, t-shirt and plimsolls/trainers. The children have the opportunity to do these sessions barefoot.
Please ensure book bags and reading records are brought in every day. The children are asked for them each morning, so we can keep track of their reading and make sure they change their books when they have finished.
Named water bottles must be brought in each day please as this ensure children stay hydrated! It is both disruptive to the class and to Reception class if children keep requesting to go to the water fountain. Thank you.
As before, homework will go home on a Wednesday and is due back in on a Monday. Children will receive either a piece of English or Maths each week. They are not expected to spend more than 30 minutes on their homework. Please comment in your child's book, if they found any aspect of it difficult. Spellings will also be sent home each week to learn ready for a spelling test on Monday morning.
