Ash Class

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

I hope you are ready for an exciting year ahead!

Our topic for this half term is 'Towers, tunnels and turrets'.

 

PE Days 

Please make sure your child has a full, named PE kit. They need indoor and outdoor kit please – T shirt, shorts and trainers are essential items.  (See website for uniform & PE list). 

Wednesday is the PE day for Ash Class. The children will also be going swimming from Thursday 12th September until Thursday 21st November. 

 

 

Start of the Day

Please escort your child to the classroom door and wait with your child until the teacher is there to open at 8:45am. We would appreciate it if you can say your goodbyes at the door as the cloakroom can become very busy. The door will close at 9:00am, if you arrive after this time please go round to the office.

 

End of Day

KS1 children finish at 3.25pm. Parents should wait outside the class door as usual. In the interests of child safety, please do not enter the school building at the end of the day. If you wish to speak to your child’s teacher then please be patient and wait until the teacher is free. Our main priority is ensuring that the children in our care are handed over to their parent or carer.

 

Please let school know if somebody else is picking up your child at the end of the day.

Homework:

Spellings will not be tested weekly, instead we will be teaching spellings in school daily. Children are encouraged to keep practising key spellings at home!

To improve the fluency and accuracy of times tables, the children in Year 2 have access to Times Tables Rockstars! The children will be tested weekly on their times tables so keep practising at home to beat your time.
