Homework will be given out on a Thursday. Often homework will be something for you to do or to talk through rather than written work that needs handing in, but when something does need to be handed in, please send it back in by Tuesday.

To find out what homework Year 2 has this week please visit our Homework Page.


The children should go onto the main playground at the beginning of the school day – the whistle is blown at 8.50am. Teaching sessions start at 9am and the main gate will be locked at 8.55am.  If you arrive after 8.55am, please take your child to the office.

We would ask that you encourage your child to be independent when coming in to school. It is very important for your child’s development for them to be able to take responsibility for themselves and their own property.

At the end of the day, Year 1 children are collected from the Year 1 playground and Year 2 from the main playground. We ask parents collecting children from Year 2 to stand behind the red line. Your child will not be sent to an adult collecting until a member of staff has seen someone behind the red line ready to collect. The child will then be sent from the classroom. If someone different is due to collect your child please indicate so in the communication diary.

At least 2 members of the staff will be available at the beginning and end of each day to answer any questions that you may have.  Any of the staff will be able to answer your questions or direct you to the appropriate person.  If you wish to make an appointment to see the teachers, this can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Key Stage 1 team.

Peter Rabbits – Tuesday

Tigers – Wednesday

Postman Pats – Wednesday and Thursday

Please see the Year 2 Reading overview to know what we are focusing on each half term in Guided Reading and these are what you could be focusing on at home when you hear your child read.
