Home Learning

A variety of activities for your child to complete at home are on the back of the Newsletters..


Reading with your child at home is extremely important to their development, even 5 minutes a day can make a difference! Please can all books be returned to school on your child's selected day, they will then have a different book to read for the following week. 


P.E Days 

Year 2 will have P.E every Thursday. Please ensure your child has a kit in school with them (shorts/joggers and a t-shirt).
