We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child into Year 2. Our half-termly newsletters will inform you of our topics and the areas we will be covering, as well as any additional information you need to know.


Havelockinfjnr 2370 300Teaching and Learning in Year 2Please feel free to come and speak to us about how your child is settling in, developments you’d like to share or any concerns you have. If this is a quick message, the member of staff ;on the door in the morning will be happy to pass it on to your child’s teacher, or please catch us at the end of the day. If it is something that will need longer, please make an appointment for a more convenient time. As you can appreciate mornings are very busy but we do want to hear from you and will do our very best to see you the same day. Home/School link books are checked every day, but it is always worth asking your child to let us know if there is a message inside that we need to read.

Please can we remind you to make sure all your child’s items of clothing are named, particularly jumpers. If your child does come home with clothing that doesn’t belong to them please return it as soon as possible.

Our PE days are:

Toucans : Tuesday and Friday

Flamingos : Tuesday and Thursday

Barn Owls: Wednesday and Friday

On those days, earrings must be taken out before school unless your child can take them out themselves. All PE will be take place outside.  We ask that all children come to school on their PE days wearing their PE kits to avoid having to change at school.  When coming to school in PE kits for the day please send them in wearing appropriate PE kit for the weather with their usual school jumper/cardigan on top.


Children are able to change their reading book on any day as long as there is evidence in the Home/School link book that it has been read on two separate occasions. We encourage the children to take responsibility for changing their own books, so if they are a little forgetful, you may want to remind them on the way onto school!

Homework is set on Thursdays via Teams and must be submitted by Tuesday via the same route.  The children can complete the homework in their homework books but a photograph will need to be taken of it to upload to the relevant Year 2 class.   We will also be using an internet site called MyMaths to set a maths task each week.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any further information, we are grateful for your continued support.
