PE in Year 2
PE will be on Monday afternoons and Friday mornings.
Please ensure that indoor and outdoor PE kits are in school at all times. Trainers are more suitable for outdoor PE. Children will not require footwear for indoor sessions.
Sometimes PE days will need to change due to the weather or due to other school commitments.
What is happening in class this week?
Each week, we will let you know what is happening in class and suggest home activities linked to what we are learning.
Children will be writing autobiographies with Miss Farrar at the start of term. If you would like to send any photos of family, pets, home etc. this would be great to help children with their work.
We will be testing children using the Common Exception Words and spelling they have learned in letters and sounds. We will not be sending words home to learn every week. We will let you know what we are learning each week. Children can continue to learn common exception words at home.
Your child could use this look, cover, write check sheet to practise their spellings. If you would like a paper copy please ask in school.
