Welcome to Year 2


We are looking forward to a fantastic year with you all. We will post information on here and send out messages via the app. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher for any additional information.



2G will have PE on Tuesday and Thursday.

2CL will have PE on Monday and Friday.

Children should come to school wearing their PE kit. Please ensure your child is wearing: navy or black shorts/leggings/joggers, white or house colour T-shirt and a black or navy sweatshirt.



Children's reading books will be changed each week. Your child could be asked to read to an adult at any point during the week. Please ensure they have their reading books and reading record with them every day. Please sign and comment in their reading records whenever they read at home as this will help us to monitor how often the children are reading.
