Welcome to Year 2.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure all PE kits are in school and include an outdoor PE kit as we will be doing outside PE most of the year. Children are not allowed to wear earrings during PE so please ensure they are taken out before school on these days if the children cannot take them out themselves.

We encourage children to read a little each day. This can be their school reading book, or a book from home or the library. When you read with your child, please ensure you date and sign the contact book / reading record.  This means that your child can receive a tick towards their termly reading certificate which we present during our Reading Celebration Assembly.

Home learning books are to be handed in on a Wednesday and will be returned on a Friday.Maths Home Learning is sent home on Fridays and spellings are sent home on Mondays.Please note that spellings, maths homework and home learning books are not sent home on the last Friday of term. They will be returned with the new homework grid inside on the first Friday back to school. 

Common Exception Words

Please find below a document that contains a list of common exception words from the National Curriculum (2014) for Year 2. It is expected that your child will recognise and know how to spell these words by the end of the year so we hope we find this useful if you wish to practise at home.
