In all the work you are doing, work the best you can. Work like you are working for the Lord, not for people.
The school day begins with registration at 8.55 a.m and we really appreciate prompt time-keeping to get the children off to a good start.
Reading books should be brought in daily as we hear pupils read on different days of the week. Please read a little each night with your child and ask them questions about each page as this really helps to develop their understanding of what they have read. It also helps to prepare them for SATS in May. Please also sign the diary as a record of how they got on.
Homework for English, Mathematics and Spellings are given every Friday to be handed in on Monday. We really appreciate you sitting with your child as the homework reinforces what they have been learning in class, handwriting and spelling are also very important to think about.
Children keep their spellings for a week and are tested on Fridays. Some of the spellings will be given in a sentence to check that the children can apply the spellings to their own work.
Dinners are free for all children in year 2. Could you please inform us if your child is changing their choice of dinner on a Monday to help us with ordering lunches.
We have an action packed year planned and we will be posting pictures and information about school trips and activities very soon- so watch this space and enjoy finding out what your children have been up to so far!
Tuesday 12th September - Polling day for school council representatives
At the beginning of the year we thought about how we are a democratic society and how our school shows democracy through the school council. We were all given the opportunity to submit an application to become the year 2 representatives for our school council, the school council then shortlisted 4 candidates after reading these. Then we made a speech to our class setting out our aims and goals and our class had to think very carefully about who they thought would be best for the job. On Tuesday 12th September we went to the polls where we were all given the opportunity to vote for who we thought would do a great job for our class and school.
