I hope you have had a lovely time over the summer and I am sure you are now ready to start the new school year, so welcome to Year 2.

Here are important reminders and information about the children’s day and what they will need.

School day: School starts at 9am and ends at 3:10pm, children will be dismissed on to the same yard as children enter in the morning. Breakfast club is available from 8.15am and after school club is available for children who wish to attend. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you would like more information. 

Fruit/Drink: Fruit is available for the children; fruit costs £1 a week or 20p a day.  We kindly ask that fruit money for the week is brought into school on a Monday in an envelope with your child’s name, year group and amount clearly labelled on it. Children will have milk everyday however, children are able to bring their own water bottles to school. Please ensure bottles are filled with water only.

Dinner: Dinner money for the week should be brought to school on a Monday in an envelope with your child’s name, year group and amount clearly labelled on it.

P.E: Year 2 will have PE on a Tuesday; your child will need a t-shirt and shorts / joggers and suitable footwear to change into. Some P.E lessons will take place outside so please ensure that your child has suitable clothing. Please make sure that your child’s name is on their P.E clothes and school clothes for when they are changing. If your child is unable to participate in a P.E lesson please speak to me or send a note with reasons why into school.

Book bags and reading: Book bags will be sent home daily with reading records and reading books or sound work. Book bags and reading records need to be returned to school daily. Reading with your child is very important; we would encourage you to comment and sign the record book.

Homework: Homework books will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned on Monday.  Homework will be sent weekly with an alternate focus on language work and number work.

Letters: This year we will be sending letters and information home via SCHOOP. If you have not already downloaded SCHOOP please download from Google play or apple app store. The school code is: 7749.

As part of the Foundation Phase Curriculum children are encouraged to be independent learners and they are encouraged to try as many activities as possible. We apologise in advance if your child comes home ‘messy’, this will be because they have been actively involved in their learning. Some activities may take place outside so please ensure that your child has appropriate clothes. We thank you for your continued support to give your child the best possible education. If you feel that you have any qualities, skills or resources that would benefit your child’s learning environment please speak to a member of staff in the Foundation Phase.

Finally, if you have any questions or concerns please come and see me, I am always available to talk to you. I look forward to working with you this year and following and encouraging your child’s learning journey.

Thank you, Mrs Coley
