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 2J! Enjoy!


Reading Books

2J will have the opportunity to change their own reading books daily. We will visit the library weekly, usually on a Thursday.  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.



2J 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. If necessary children can complete their homework or practise their spellings in homework club on Wednesday and Thursday at play time. 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 as the books are used for a lesson every Friday.


P.E Days

2J have P.E weekly, sometimes on Tuesday, and sometimes on a Friday morning, 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- Thursday 18th July 2019


In Maths we have been practising multiplication. We can also say ‘times’, ‘groups of’ and ‘lots of’.

Did you know that multiplication is commutative, which means if you swap over the first two numbers in the calculation you will still get the same answer?


In English we wrote our own story in the style of Roald Dahl. This means that it was funny, some of the characters were mean, we used made up words and included lots of ‘clever tricks’.

What is your favourite Road Dahl book?


We are now expert nutritionists. We can plan a balanced meal using foods from the five food groups.

Do you know what they are?


We are looking forwards to sports day on Monday. We hope to see you there!
