Some important information for parents and carers
User guide for Reading Planet: Parent And Pupil Guide To Reading Planet
Year 2 PE day is TUESDAY for both classes. Remember to come into school in your PE kit on Tuesday
Year 2 homework will be set each Wednesday and will be posted on this web page, to be completed by the following Wednesday. There will be no paper homework sent with your child, at least for the time being. The children will typically have spellings and times tables to learn as well as a piece of maths and literacy.
The homework for Y2 will be:
an activity on “My Maths”
Spellings to learn for 30th September :
key monkey chimney valley alley honey trolley money door because
Times Tables to learn for Wednesday 30th September; Five times tables.
We will ask the questions in a random order so please ensure the children learn them in a non-consecutive order.
Year 2 reading books. Children will not be bringing home a physical reading book. Instead, they will be set an E-book to read at home, with questions at the end to discuss with an adult. The children will then read and discuss the same book in school as a guided reading session. They will also be allocated a reading for pleasure book, which will also be set as an E-book.
You will receive extra information about this new way of supporting your child’s reading via Parent mail.
Reading books will be given out on these days:
Class 6 with Ms Malone will all have their reading books changed each MONDAY.
Class 5 with Miss Wikeley and Mrs Woolnough will have their books changed on a particular day each week. This will depend on the reading group the children are in. By the end of this week the children will all know which group they are in and will have a book to share with you at home!
Monday – Dolphin group will have their books changed
Tuesday – Lions
Wednesdays – Leopards
Thursday – Jaguars and Pandas
Friday – Tigers and Koalas
All children will also be allocated a a second reading book; This will be the same book for all year 2 children, this can be read independently by the children or can be read to them.
Remember, your child has their own, personal, labelled pencil case in school with their own stationery. Please only send in a book for reading for pleasure!
We are currently unable to catch you for a quick chat on the door before and after school. Remember, no news is good news, but if we need to contact you, we will do so via a phone call from the office at another time. Similarly, if you need to get in touch with us, please ring the office as normal and we will get back to you.
RE Tuesday 15th
Today in RE we made our way outside to enjoy the sunshine, we laid out 66 books with the names of all the books of the Bible on so we could see just how many books made up our Holy book. I wonder how many of the books the children can remember?

Work for the week will be added here for your child to complete at home if they need to self-isolate.
