The 'Welcome back to Wendell' event will begin with a meeting with the senior leaders to discuss the vision for the school for the next three years. There will also be an introduction to the 'Mind Up' curriculum being introduced this year. Following on from the meeting with the senior leaders, parents are invited to go to their children's classes to speak to their new class teachers. At that meeting, you will find out more about the procedures in class (when reading books and homework are due in), information about the curriculum and special events being planned. This is also an excellent opportunity to ask your new class teacher any questions. We understand that some families need to attend more than one class so please feel free to move from class to class. The event will finish at 4:30pm.

PE - Our PE sessions this half term will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children need to bring their PE kits on Monday or Tuesday and leave it on their peg for the whole week.
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 Wednesday. 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.
