Week 4 Friday 22nd            Year 2 Show and Tell

Week 5 Friday 29th             Bring your favourite book

Week 6 Friday   5th April     Everyone show and Tell


We will continue to fill and update sound and number pencil cases as necessary so please continue to practise these together with reading regularly with your child. Practise at home embeds learning and gives you an opportunity to share learning with your child. We may also write questions about reading books for your children to respond to each week in their diaries. These questions provide your child with invaluable practise in comprehension and inference. Hive points will be awarded for each time reading is completed at home so please remember to sign diaries so we know it has been done. I have also send home book marks to support questioning whilst reading.

Homework topic related tasks have been set and handed out/are on the website (at least one each half term- but you are welcome to do more). These will give you an opportunity to share learning with your child and are in addition to usual reading, spelling and Maths fact practise.  2 hive points will be awarded for each completed homework task.


  • Please make sure your child has suitable clothing each day
  • PE kit Tuesday and Thursday – including socks if you have tights on!
  • Swim Kit Tuesday
