Key Information

PE Days – Year 2 have PE on a Monday (2GK), Tuesday (2HK) and a Friday (both classes). A full PE kit should be brought in at the beginning of the week and left in school. A list of the full PE kit can be found on the website under Parents > School Uniform

Homework - Homework is set every Friday and is due back the following Wednesday. 

Reading Books - Reading books and records should be brought to school daily. We encourage children to read every night to support their phonics. Please ensure that once you have read a book, you comment and sign so we know if it has been read.

Library Books - The children will have the chance to choose a library book to take home with them for the week on a Friday afternoon. Their library book needs to come back to school each Friday in order to be changed.
