Homework

A Year 2 newsletter is sent out via School Comms each week.

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible and ideally at least three times a week. Reading books are changed on a Monday but please send books into school each day as we have volunteers who come in to read with the children on various days during the week.

Big talk: Children are given a topic to discuss at home once a week and are expected to come to school with a sentence to share.

Please follow this link to access parent information about end of year non-negotiables for English and Mathematics. Any support that you can give to your child to achieve these targets will be extremely valuable.
