2B

Welcome to the Class 2B web page!

Hello Parents and Carers,

We hope you have had a relaxing and enjoyable Summer; we look forward to welcoming the children back on Thursday 2nd September. 

Just to let you know a few important pieces of information for the new term ahead. 

Year 2 arrival time is 8:30am and end of day collection time is 3:00pm.

School Meals:

Ensure you book your child's school meals, via parent pay,  by Friday for the following week. If you have any problems with this, please contact the main school office. Please also make sure your child has a water bottle filled with water (squash is only permitted with lunch). 

Sport

PE is on Fridays for the whole class. Children need to wear their school-issue PE kits (navy T-shirt & shorts) to school. Plimsolls or plain black trainers are permitted footwear and children are allowed to wear tracksuit trousers and a hoodie when the weather is inclement. Please visit the office if you need to order new PE kit. 

Swimming/PE- On Wednesdays there will be an additional Swimming or PE session to keep Class 2J active. A swimming coach will teach swimming sessions and the class teacher/s will take the non-swimming group out to carry out an additional PE session. The class will be split into two groups A and B. Group A will swim terms 1,3,5 and B 2,4,6. A PE timetable lists the children in each group and has been published via our Class Dojo page. 

Reading at home

Our Reading Challenge continues and if we would like to win, we need all parents reading with their child for at least 10 minutes, 5 days a week. We ask parents to log in their child's Home Reading Record each night they have read over the course of a week. The whole school Reading Challenge is Lego themed this year and each night a child reads they add a lego brick to their class' total score. Regular reading support at home will help your child, the more they practice the better they will get. Our staff are always on hand to help with any concerns or advice you may seek with regards to support your child's reading journey at home. 

Homework 

Information TBA shortly
