Welcome to Year 2’s class page!

We are so pleased to be back together and are looking forward to a fantastic summer term!

 

In Class

Children should bring a named water bottle into school each day and bagels are available each morning free of charge to all pupils.

 

Uniform Policy

As of Monday 14th September, we are amending our uniform policy to allow children with pierced ears to wear one set of simple stud earrings if they so wish. We would still strongly recommend that children remove their earrings before coming to school, however if they are unable to do so you must sign a disclaimer. 

By signing a disclaimer, you are taking full responsibility for your child’s earrings and all health and safety risks associated with wearing them to school, which includes playtimes and PE lessons. Children may tape the back of their earrings for PE lessons to lessen the risk of injury, but school and staff cannot do this for them. 

Please note that this disclaimer does not apply to swimming.

This amendment ONLY applies to earrings, other jewellery will not be permitted, including any additional piercings.

 

Curriculum

In English we shall be finishing off our unit based on Scarlett- the little girl with only 1 leg before going on to read Bee. In Science we shall be finishing off our Animals Including Humans unit before starting to lean about plants. In Maths, we will be looking at fractions, standard forms of measure (cm and m) and time and in DT we will be completing our textiles project and sewing our very own blankets! PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and children should come into school dressed in their PE kits. 

 

Trips

In year 2, we usually attend a few trips throughout the year. If things change in the foreseeable future, these trips will go ahead, and you will be given plenty of notice. Each trip is £15 per child which pays for the coach and location. This year, we hope to go to:

- Knowsley Safari Park

 

Homework 

The children are greatly encouraged to read at least four times each week at home. This can be their school reading book or any other text that they choose.
