Year 2

Year 2's class blog

"Living and learning, inspired by our faith."

A very warm welcome to Year 2's blog! Below you will see important reminders for the year ahead, as well as dates for the diary, the winner of the "Star of the Week", Headteacher's award, house points and what the children have been learning about. If you have any questions which you would like to ask regarding the blog, please don't hesitate to see me at the end of the day. 

Here are a few reminders of what you need to know this year:

- Children should always wear the appropriate school uniform.

- In cold weather, ensure children have their jumpers/cardigans and a coat with a hood (or a green school hat.)

- Children will be expected to bring their P.E. kit to school and they will change for P.E in school. Once P.E. has finished, they will change back into their school uniform.

- Homework will be given out on a Thursday. You will find the return dates for the different pieces of homework on the homework page at the bottom.

If your child cannot print out their homework from home, please write a note in their diary and I will provide paper copies.

 - Children will need to bring their diaries and reading books into school every day. Please ensure that you sign the diary everyday. Diaries will be checked at school and should be kept up-to-date by both school staff and parents/carers.

- Water bottles are allowed in school and if possible, could the bottles please have the children's names on them. 

Thank you!

Mr Lyons
