  • MONDAY: Library afternoon
    Can you please ensure that your child bring their book bags in daily. Your children will be sent home with a book from the library to enjoy with you at home. These will be changed every Monday. Your child might also bring home books from our Accelerated Reader or Read Write Inc programs.
    We ask that all children come into school in their PE kit.
  • FRIDAY: Infant Summer Concert
    A special assembly to celebrate the end of term and for the children of Class 1 and 2 to share the many songs they have been singing over this past year. This will be held at 2:00 pm in the covered playground.


In Class 2, we love to sing. We sing to learn Maths, we sing in Science lessons, we sing in History lessons,… we sing every time we get the chance. The children have asked that I share some of the songs we love in class here so that they can share them with you. So, here are links to a few of our favourites at the moment.

The Doodling Song:

One, Two, Three Little Acorns:

Double Trouble:

One Add Nine, Nine Add One:

In Class 2, we love our books! We ensure that we choose and share a variety of books every day in class. Further, every child is encouraged to access a selection of books related to our topic. To encourage this love of reading further at home, you could read and talk about the books they bring back home in their book bag. We change these books every Monday afternoon.

For the Year 2s who have access to Accelerated Reader leveled reading books, it is expected that your child is to read for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour per day. Accelerated reader quizzes can be accessed at home. Please click on the link below and then enter in your user name and password.
