Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading and homework.


At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- a fortnightly update of all the exciting things that happen within 2AB! Enjoy!


Reading Books

2AB will have the opportunity to change their own reading books weekly. We will visit the library weekly and children will bring home their choice of a library book. Please ensure book bags are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week.



2AB will receive English and Maths homework every Friday, and it is due back in school on Wednesdays. Children will receive a house point for every piece of homework that they return to school. Please encourage your child to complete their homework, and support them if necessary. They will be given words to learn to spell on a Friday, and will be tested in school on the following Friday. If your child does not bring their homework home, please see their teacher as soon as possible.


P.E Days

2AB have P.E weekly, usually on a Friday, but this is subject to change, so please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. For health and safety reasons hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed for P.E. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

Class Blog- Friday 17th May 2019


In Art, we painted pictures in the style of Lowry. IW says ‘We painted a blue background that got lighter as we went up the page. Then when it dried, we painted black boats onto the blue sea. We didn’t paint boats at the top of the page otherwise they would be in the sky’.

In Music, we have been learning a song about friendship. NE says ‘We had to learn 5 verses all about friendship’. JC says ‘We practised singing the whole song and it was a lot to remember which was quite tricky’.

CT says ‘In History, we have been learning about Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. We learnt that because they didn’t have proper toilets there was sometimes mess in the road. People walked across stones to get to the other side’.

LR says ‘When Mount Vesuvius erupted, the people in Pompeii escaped because of the ash, dust, rocks, poisonous gas and lava’.

COS says ‘The people of Pompeii thought Vesuvius was just a mountain’.

FH says ‘Archaeologists dig into the ground to find artefacts which tells them about what happened in the past’.

M-RG says ‘We got 5 house points every day this week for getting to school on time every day. If we were in school every day this week, we were given a certificate’.
