Year 2

 Year 2 is made up of three classes

Brazil, Peru and Chili 


Hello and welcome to the Year 2 page.

The Year 2 Team: 
Chile Class –Mr Edgington
Peru Class – Mrs Eggington
Brazil Class – Mr Burdock


The start and the end of the day

The school day starts at 8.35 am and ends at 3.10pm for all Year 2 children. 


What to bring to school
Children in Year 2 will need to have a bag to store their reading books. Book bags are best as these fit into trays and take up less space. Book bags also help keep books flat and stop our books from getting damaged. Please provide your child with a clearly labelled water bottle. As per school policy the water bottle must contain water only. They can be purchased from the school office for £1, or you may provide your own. 


PE days 

The PE days for Year 2 will be on Tuesday and Wednesday. On these days, your child can come to school in PE kit. Suitable PE footwear, such as plimpsoles or trainers, can also be worn to school on these days. PE kits are not required to be brought in to school as the children will not be getting changed.


Forest Schools

Autumn 1 - Brazil Class will have Forest Schools every Tuesday Morning.


Healthy snack and lunchboxes
Children in Key Stage 1 are given a piece of fruit each day to eat at breaktime so parents do not need to provide a snack. If you do wish to send your child to school with a snack, please consider a healthy option, such as breadsticks, fruit, chopped vegetables or dried fruit. All children in EYFS and KS1 are also entitled to a Universal Free School Meal. If your child brings a packed lunch to school, please make sure there are no products that contain nuts (this does include many chocolate spreads) as we have children with allergies. Please also do not send your child to school with sweets or fizzy drinks in their lunch boxes. Some ideas can be found here


Homework and reading expectations
Children will be given reading books. It is important that your child reads as much as possible at home as this will help them in all areas of their learning. Key words will be sent home on cards for children to learn to read. The first sets of words are the robot words cards, then children will move onto the astronaut word cards. We are aware that some children did not finish their Year 1 robot words so children will be given any words they missed from last year. Children will be tested weekly on their key words and spellings matching their spelling group.

How you can help your child in Year 2
Year 2 is an important year for your children and we would love you to be able to support them in this important time by encouraging them and working with them to achieve any learning sent home. This will include reading their home school book at least 5 times a week, practising spellings or times tables and completing projects. We understand that sometimes it can be hard to find time at home but by working with your children it will really enhance their learning. We appreciate and thank you for your support.
