Thank you

Homework will be sent out every Friday to be returned on the following Monday.
Please ensure that your homework is presented to the highest quality and that you are proud of your homework. We will be uploading fantastic homework onto this class page so please look out for this on the link below, 'Worker of the week.'
Thank you.

We will be having weekly spelling tests on a Friday.
Your child's spellings will be based on the phonics group they are in and are linked to our phonic sessions. Sometimes spellings will be topic based. These spellings will be on the class page, see links below. The children will be given a spelling book and spellings will be stuck in the back for them to practise in their books too.

They may also receive some keywords to read and spell, please see link below for all 300 keywords. The children will move onto the next set as and when they can read and spell them consistently. These will be put in a separate book which they need to keep in their book bags at all times.


Children throughout the school will still be learning their number facts. The children need to be able to recite them as quickly as they can recite their name. The children will now be learning the same Learn-Its in their numeracy lessons to help them recall these quickly until they are truly embedded.
Please see the link below for year 2 Learn-Its.

Thank you for your continued support.

Congratulations to our appointed School Councillors, Charlotte and Alex,
  our class Eco Warriors, Aariyan and Sandra and our Peacemakers Deryn and Alvis. I am sure you will all do a wonderful job!
