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 Friday 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 require 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.

 

Here is an overview of what your child will be learning this year.  For a more detailed look at the Northcote Curriculum please visit curriculum pages.
