Reminders for Summer Term 2024

Please can you make sure your child has a coat at school every day.  We like to take advantage of our lovely outdoor area and encourage the children to explore and investigate in the fresh air as much as possible whatever the weather (within reason!). 

Please ensure your child has a named bottle filled with water with them each day.

Reading diaries will be sent home, and new eBooks assigned, on Fridays. Please return Reading Diaries to school on Mondays.

We will be sharing our favourite stories on Mondays, and on Fridays we will be celebrating children’s out of school achievements, so please send any trophies or certificates in on Fridays.

On P.E days children need to come to school on these days in their P.E kit.

          Robin: Wednesday and Thursday

Rabbit: Wednesday and Friday

          Squirrel: Monday and Friday

Updates will continue to be uploaded to ClassDojo, so please remember to check for updates. If you need to get in touch with me, please message me directly on ClassDojo. If you would prefer to email, my email address can be found using the contact box on our class page on the school website.

All Year 2 children have completed Pedestrian Training! They had an indoor session, learning all about road safety, including the different vehicles that may be on the road and different road signs. In the outdoor sessions, we went on a walk in Scotter, putting what they had learnt to practice!
