Key Information 


Welcome to Year 2!



In Year 2 PE will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.  

Please send children into school in their school uniform and bring their PE kits separately in a bag. They can leave their PE kits in school until half term if you wish. 


PE kit for cold weather – tracksuit bottoms, tracksuit jacket or jumper, white t-shirt and trainers or pumps.


PE kit for warm weather – tracksuit bottoms or shorts, white t-shirt and trainers or pumps.


Please bring water bottles into class. Please only give children water, in case of spills. 



Homework in year 2 is based around the basic skills that the children need to build on. We expect children to read at home daily for about 10 minutes and their individual reading books to take home will be changed once a week. 

Spellings will be sent home every Friday to learn at home. These spellings will link to words and sounds that they have been learning in Phonics sessions including tricky words linked to learning in all areas of the curriculum. We will test children on their spellings every Thursday morning.


Your child will also  bring home passwords for various online platforms which they can use to practise  different skills such as reading and times tables.
