PE lessons

Your child’s PE lesson will be on Monday and Thursday.

On these days please ensure that your child comes to school in full PE kit, including suitable footwear (trainers or plimsolls). The PE kit includes a light coloured T shirt and black joggers. Your child will remain in their PE kit all day then the PE kit will need to be washed ready for their next PE day.

Homework

Homework will be sent via Class Dojo. Please make sure you are checking Class Dojo regularly for information and to see what we have been doing in school.  Homework will be posted each week on Class Dojo.

Reading books

Reading books will be used as normal and the children will be able to take home reading books and reading records as they wish. When the children have finished their book they will bring it back to class.

Belongings from home

The children will not need to bring in anything from home aside from a named water bottle, a packed lunch box (if packed lunch) and a coat. The children should not bring in any pencil cases from home as everything will provided by school.

Drop off and pick ups

In the morning doors will be open from 8.20am and the children can make their way to their classroom as soon as they arrive. Please say goodbye to the children away from the door and allow them to make their own way indoors. If you need to speak to your child’s teacher please ring the office to book an appointment. Lessons start from 8.30 am. At home time please wait for your child to be sent to you. The school day ends at 2.45pm.

I am very much looking forward to our first term in Year 2 together.

Many thanks,

Mrs Tilly, Ms Alman Mrs Kabbani
