School Dinners

All the children in Year 2 are entitled to a school meal every day. 


P.E. lessons will be on Wednesdays every week. Please make sure your child comes to school on a Wednesday wearing their P.E. kit. 


Spellings will be given out on Thursdays and will need to be learned for a test the following Thursday.  
Home Readers and Class Library Books

The children will be given a 'home reader' which can be should be changed as often as possible. This is a book that matches their developing phonic knowledge.  Your child should be able to read this book with some fluency whilst also using their decoding strategies e.g. sounding out and blending to read this book out loud to an adult.  

The children will also get the chance to choose a book from the school Library once a week. This book is a ‘reading for pleasure’ book and can be shared with an adult at home.  


In Key Stage 1 children continue to be taught using the 'Letters and Sounds' programme. Listed below are some useful resources.
