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 15th March 2019


We enjoyed World Book Day last week. We dressed up as our favourite book characters and we listened to a storyteller. NE says ‘The story teller told us a story and he asked children to come to the front and join in’. DR says ‘The story teller used instruments in his story’.

Yesterday in Science, we planted a sunflower seed. IW says ‘We made a hole in the soil and put the seed in. After we covered it up, we watered the plants. BH says ‘We gave it soil and water to help it grow. We also need to give it sunlight’. JC says ‘We learnt about the life cycle of a plant. The seed forms a shoot. Then the stem, roots and leaves grow. After that the flower is formed. Finally, the plant produces seeds to grow new plants’.

In English, we have been learning about instructions. LDC says ‘When we write instructions we need an equipment list because otherwise we might not have all the things we need’. IW says ‘We wrote our own instructions and mine were about making a cake’. LR says ‘Instructions needs clear steps that are numbered so they are in the correct order’.

We have been learning about fractions in maths. AR says ‘We counted in fractions. Four quarters make one whole’. LR says ‘1/2 and 2/4 are the same size’. EO says ‘If you are trying to find ¾ of a number, you need share the number into 4 circles and then count up 3 of them’.

We have created posters on laptops in computing. COS says ‘We changed the font, the colour and the size of our words’.
