PE in Year 2
PE will be on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings.
Please ensure that indoor and outdoor PE kits are in school all the time. Trainers are more suitable for outdoor PE. Children will be outside (weather permitting) after the Easter Break so please ensure they have outdoor kit with them.
Sometimes PE days will need to change due to the weather or due to other school commitments.
What is happening in class this week?
Did you get a book for Christmas? If so, bring it in and share it with the class at the start of term.
We will be looking at fiction and non-fiction texts about space. If you have any please bring them into school.
Spelling tests will continue from 16th January.
We will continue 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.
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.
