Key information

We expect children to read at least 4 times a week. Please could you sign your child’s reading diary each time they read with you at home. The children are rewarded in our weekly celebration assemblies for consistent home reading throughout each half term. It would be lovely to see lots of our class receiving a certificate each half term!

Homework is given out on a Friday expected to be returned by the following Wednesday. Children can return their homework as soon as it is complete.

Spellings are also given out on a Friday for children to learn for a spelling test the following Friday. They can use their spelling diaries to learn these and write the words into sentences.

Our PE lessons are every Monday afternoon. Children need their full kit in school every week: white T-shirt, blue/black shorts & black pumps. Children are unable to wear trainers when we have PE in the school hall, only pumps or bare foot. If your child takes part in an after school club that requires a PE kit please can you ensure their kit is returned the next day & available for PE lessons.

Current extra curricular clubs available for our Year 2 children include Choir.

 

Victorians! 

This half term we are learning all about the Victorians! This is so much fun every year. We have a visit arranged to Norton Priory on 17th October with our Victorian morning held in school 16th October where we try bring Victorian life to Northcote! We encourage children to wear Victorian costume for both events – it’s always wonderful to see the children dressed up! I’ve attached the letter with all the information you need. If you have any questions or need any help with costumes please come and see Mrs Pitfield.
