Mrs Wilkinson and Mr Heritage and Classes 2W and 2H welcome you to Year 2!


Below are the answers to some frequently asked questions, we hope they will help you and your child with the transition to Year .



2H PE sessions are on Monday and Wednesday each week.

2W PE sessions are on Tuesday each week.

2W will go swimming up until February half term then 2H will go swimming until the end of the school year. Swimming is on a Monday. After swimming has finished for 2W they will also have PE on a Monday.



Homework will be given each Friday. This year we are setting more varied homework tasks including maths and topic related activities and super sentences. Homework should be returned no later than the following Thursday of being given.



Children will be given spellings and super sentences to learn every week.


Reading Books

Please can reading books come into school every day as your child will need them for any 1:1 reading they may do with an adult. Reading books are changed on a Wednesday in 2H and 2W.

Please can you make sure you write in Reading Records when reading books are ready for changing, your comments are a valued part of the learning to read process. Children also need to be pro-active in telling their teacher if their book needs changing.


Water bottles

Children are provided with a school water bottle, which is changed daily. They are kept in the classroom and available apart from during focussed teaching time.



If you have any concerns and feel you need to speak to us, please don't hesitate....after school is best as mornings tend to be very busy. Alternatively, you may wish to make an appointment to speak to Miss Illy as Phase 1 Leader.


We look forward to working with you and your children in this very important year.
