  • If you need to speak to your child’s teacher, there will be a member of staff at our Year 2 door every morning. Please speak to them and we will be able to pass on messages or call on your child’s own teacher.
  • PE days are Monday and Thursday.
  • Children will need indoor and outdoor kit including plimsolls and trainers, and their house t-shirt (they are available at the office if a replacement is needed).
  • No jewellery to be worn on P.E days (including earrings, which must not be plastered or taped over).
  • Spelling tests will be on Mondays. The words to be learned will be given on a half-termly sheet. Spelling is tricky! Please do not worry if the words are challenging at first…remember practice makes progress!!!
  • Homework will be set on a Thursday and is due in on the following Wednesday. Homework should not cause anxiety, please see your child’s teacher if you have any concerns.

Thank you for your continued support.

The Tunnel Experience

We love our new story called The Tunnel by Antony Brown !

It is about a brother and sister who explore a mysterious tunnel one day.

Today we imagined we were crawling through the tunnel ourselves. We made tunnels in the classrooms and crawled through them while listening to haunting, whistling tunnel sounds. 

We made our own paper tunnel systems and generated so many words and phrases that we hope to use in our own stories this week. 


Up High and Down Low!

Happy New Year !

Please see the Term 3 Newsletter in our Curriculum Letters section on this page. 

It will tell you all about our plans for this term. 

Our topic area is call Up High and Down Low!

We will be creating stories from high and low as well as taking photographs, learning all about the first flights and designing our own kites. 

We cannot wait to share it all with you in our blogs.
