Welcome Message

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 weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within Year 2! Enjoy!


Reading Books

Year 2 will have the opportunity to change their own reading books daily. We will visit the library weekly.  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.



Homework is set every Friday via J2E. This will direct you to access Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds where your children will complete an English and Maths task. Please support your child in completing these tasks. Their logins for J2E, Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds can be found inside their reading journals. If you encounter any problems, please speak to your class teacher. 


P.E Days

Year 2 have P.E weekly, 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.
