Notices and Dates

In the morning, if your child’s door is closed or you arrive late, please take them to the office to be signed in. Children are provided with fresh fruit or vegetables for their morning snack and can bring one healthy snack for afternoon play (no chocolate or sweets). Please ensure that your child has a refillable drinks bottle in school every day (no fizzy drinks), you can pay for milk online at . We will provide dates for trips, special events, and parent’s evenings on the school website and through ParentMail as and when they are applicable. We will also send out regular newsletters to tell you what the children will be learning each half term. You can find links to games and resources on our class pages on the school website.



All our homework is now set online on Google Classroom, it will appear in a new topic each Friday afternoon and is due by 8:00am the following Wednesday. Each week you will receive a list of 5 or 10 spellings to be practised at home over the course of the week, and one piece of maths covering what was taught in the previous week's maths lessons at school. If you have any issues with your Google Classroom account, please contact us on the Year Two email at We test spellings on Friday and should your child score 6/10 or less OR 3/5 or less, we will send you home photocopy of their test so you can see where they have struggled.



Your support in reading at home a little every day is invaluable in developing your child’s fluency and understanding. Daily reading is essential and we expect children to be reading with a parent/guardian for at least 10 minutes each day. Please be sure to sign your child’s reading record every time you listen to them read.


This year, children are responsible for changing their own books and we ask them to bring their reading record and books into school every day, whether they have had their reading record signed or not. Reading records are monitored to ensure children are reading regularly. As we tell the children, reading is FUN-damental!


In Year 2 you should try to extend your child’s understanding and vocabulary by asking them comprehension questions about the text. Who? What? When? Where? How? Why?



Your child must have a full P.E. kit to participate in lessons.


P.E. days are:

Blueberry – Monday and Wednesday

Bramble – Wednesday and Thursday

Blackberry – Thursday and Friday


Behaviour and Expectations

Children in Year Two are expected to begin to take more responsibility for their behaviour, their belongings and their learning. As a school, we strive to be Ready, Respectful and Safe and these expectations permeate our day to day teaching and learning.  

We expect children to follow our school and classroom rules and we reward them with verbal praise, stickers, smilies, prizes from our treasure box and by putting them on our recognition board. We also select ‘Wow Work’ each week to be displayed in our window and each class has a ‘Star of the Week’ and a ‘Reader of the Week’.


Thank you for taking the time to read this page, we look forward to a wonderful year together :)
