  • Upcoming Events

    Dear all parents and carers, 
    As we begin our second week of ‘different’ schooling I thought I would drop a short message to reach as many of you as possible. 
    As headteacher, balancing what’s best for your children with the welfare of my own children, I totally understand and can appreciate how difficult this week has been. 
    Whether you have worked from home, home schooled, been a key worker on the front line or just enjoyed an extra week with your children at home, I hope you’re all staying safe. There is no one size fits all approach to this terrifying situation that we find ourselves in; one day may look totally different to the next, but our biggest aim is to ensure that your children still feel a part of our school community and we will offer support in any way we can.
    Your priority must be the health and safety of your family. Any ‘schooling’ or ‘education’ comes second to that and we will be the first to advise you of that. However, for those children still craving some normality and wanting to continue their learning we will continue to offer this advice;
    – as we say in school, read, read, read…reading opens the doors to so many possibilities and whether they read alone, to a sibling or listen to you read, any reading will be beneficial
    – we will continue to post challenges / check any work through online means – tapestry, dojo, class pages and seesaw
    – the work books we sent home offer alternative learning
    – a range of art, Science, PE, music links and resources have been shared on our school Facebook page and on many of our website class pages
    – activities you may do as a family are just as important, if not more so, than typical schooling; baking together, enjoying the garden or the one walk a day (whilst practising social distancing of course!), playing board games, talking, playing
    There is still a lot of uncertainty around how long these current arrangements will last for. What we do know with certainty is that the Government advice of #stayhomestaysafe is paramount and throughout this time, and when we do return to school, we will continue to support you all as we have done previously. 
    If you do need anything, please do not hesitate to contact us, 
    Mrs Haylock 

    Dear all children, 
    I hope that you have all enjoyed your extra week at home? If we were still in school, altogether, I’d be looking to do an assembly to talk through what is happening right now as I imagine a lot of you have some worries.
    Please remember that having questions and worries is perfectly normal and a lot of grown ups currently feel the same. 
    We do not know how long we need to be off school for, but we do know, that for the majority of children, being at home is the best and safest thing for now to try and help stop the spread of the virus. We need to all, #stayhomestaysafe.
    All staff in school are missing you lots! If you send your teachers messages through class dojo, Tapestry or Seesaw they would love to hear from you and will try their very best to reply! 
    We’d like to see what you’ve been up to so even if being at home feels different to being in school, you will still be learning – maybe you have done some measuring when you’ve baked, or learnt something about animals from your reading – share it with us and even if you don’t manage to do anything else today, please do some reading! 

    It’s important that you stay fit, healthy and smiley while you’re off school so that when we do return to school we can continue to have lots of fun – please will you do that for me? I hope so!

    So for now, until we can be back in school, enjoy some extra time with your family, stay safe and enjoy whatever you get up to! 

    Keep smiling, 
    From Mrs Haylock

  • This term we are learning about…

  • Homework

    In Year 2 the expectation for homework is that children are to read their reading books every night. As well as this we would like your children to also practice their spellings on a daily basis. 

    We would also like your children to practice their times tables as this is a very important part of Year 2. There is a link to our Times Tables Rockstar site and Spelling Shed on this page and the login has been sent home with your child.

    Please speak to Miss Tailford if you have any questions about this. 


  • Spelling

    Spellings will be sent home weekly and these will be the common exception words for Year 2 or words with a common spelling pattern.

      Please encourage your children to practise these at home regularly.

  • Reading

    Please try and read every night at home with your children and sign their reading records to ensure they receive their reading awards.

    Reading books will be changed on a weekly basis.

      Please ensure your children have their reading books in school everyday.


  • P.E.

    We have P.E on Wednesdays and Fridays.

    Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school.

    A full P.E kit should include a white T-shirt, black shorts and either black P.E shoes or trainers.

    Trainers are required during the summer term for outdoor P.E.
