  • 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.
  • WEDNESDAY:  Outdoor Learning
    Could you please make sure that your child has a set of outdoor gear every Wednesday – this might include a pair of wellies or waterproof shoes, light waterproof coat or overalls and a change of clothes.
    We ask that all children come into school in their PE kit.

  • FRIDAY: Share a Book 
    Children can bring in one of their favorite books to share with their friends on Friday afternoon. They can also bring along a cuddly teddy or pillow to snuggle with. We ask that you sent the book and pillow/teddy/blanket in a separate bag so that we can store them safely until the afternoon.

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.

If your child has forgotten login details: The username is the 1st letter of your child’s first name and the first 4 letters of their second name. Regarding their password, if they have forgotten that, please do email me so that I can confirm.

Here are some highlights from Class 2’s visit to Discovering 42 last term.
