Bags in Year 2

We politely ask that the only bag the children bring into school is their blue reading  bag or reading wallet.

The reason being is that all the equipment they need is provided by school and we have limited space on the corridor.



All the children have now read in school and have books to take home. Each week your child will be given a reading book to share at home. Please help us by writing in the blue home-school reading record when you read with your child. This helps a lot because we can then move the children on to new books more quickly. Please encourage your child to bring their reading book bag into school every day – we never know when we will be able to squeeze an extra read in.



Spellings are sent home on Mondays, we would like the children to learn how to spell them and be able to use them in their writing.

There are lots of ways to help your child to learn their spellings; some ideas are: use the ‘look, cover, write, check’ method (where you look at the word and say the letters, the word is then covered up and your child tries to remember the word and writes it down then you check whether the word was spelt correctly); when more confident that your child can spell the words, see how many times they can write the word in 30 seconds (the children love this one!); chant the letters of the word whilst marching, clapping, stamping etc. Also, remember to use Spelling Shed.
