Welcome back to the new term! We hope that you all had a great summer and feel rested and ready for the term ahead. Here is some information about this term:
This term’s theme is ‘Home’. Please see the attached book overview, for more information about what we will be learning this term.
Homework is an important activity that supports your child’s learning. This half term’s Homework Grid is linked to our theme. Please help your child to complete one piece of homework per week which should be handed in every Friday. Please sit with your child whilst they are completing their homework to help them and to make sure they are forming both their letters and numbers in the correct way.
Reading books will be changed every week and a comment will be written in your child’s school planner. The school planner is an important means of communication between school and home. Please ensure that reading books and planners are in school every day. It is very important that you read at home with your child as often as possible. Please record this in your child’s planner or reading record book (this also counts towards homework points!). In addition if your child reads allowed to someone and records this in their planner themselves, they will be awarded points.
The children will be doing P.E. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. It is very important that children’s correct P.E kits are in school. Children should wear a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps (not trainers). Please make sure all their clothes and belongings have their names inside.
I hope that your child will enjoy a happy and successful time in Year 2 and wish them lots of luck! However if there is ever something that is bothering them or anything that you need to know please don’t hesitate to contact us or use the school planners as a way of communication and hopefully any queries can be cleared up quickly.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Gaskell and Mrs Park
