General information:

Meet the teacher PowerPoint September 2017

PE - Please see the weekly timetable for PE lessons.

Children will need to bring appropriate clothing for these sessions (in a separate bag to their book bags with the names on) – a plain white t-shirt, dark coloured jogging bottoms and plimsolls for indoor PE lesson and trainers for outdoor PE lesson. PE is a vital part of the curriculum which we want children to be prepared for. Please make sure that all uniform and PE kits are clearly named!

Homework - Children will be given homework on a regular basis which is to be handed in by Wednesday and returned to the children each Friday.

They will also be given spellings to learn each week, please help them to do these in time for our spelling test on Monday. Children are also encouraged to read for at least 15 minutes every evening;

Water - Finally, please remember it is important that your child brings water to drink during the day; also this is one way to ensure that their brains are working to their full potential. Water is not available in the Year 2 classrooms and your child is unable to go out of class to get water from elsewhere.
