Outdoor PE: both Year  2 classes have outdoor PE on Monday afternoons.

Your child will need navy shorts, a white, round neck t-shirt and trainers or plimsolls. Plain navy tracksuit bottoms are required for outdoor PE. Shorts must be plain and above the knee (no buckles or zips). No items of denim or vests are allowed.

We recommend PE kits are brought in to school and kept in school for the half term.

Home Learning

Thank you for your support with the children’s home learning so far, it really makes a difference!

There are lots of different ways you could support your child in their learning at home.  Here are just a few ways;

Spelling & Grammar: each week your child will receive a a piece of a spelling or grammar homework activity to consolidate their learning for that week.

Reading: please continue to support your child to read daily for at least 10 minutes. Either you or your child should be filling in the reading journal with the name of the book and the number of pages read, and the adult should sign it. The summer reading journals contain many activities that link to our learning in class, the stories we read and the authors who we focus on (David McKee and Lauren Child). We ask that your child completes one of these activities per week.

Maths: mathletics home learning activities will continue to be be set weekly, usually on a Monday evening. Please support your child to complete these tasks by the following Sunday.

Children can log onto Mathletics via the following link:

  Mathletics: Student Log On

If your child does not have access to a computer or the internet at home, please let us know so we can make arrangements for them to complete the home learning at school.

Encourage you child to have a go at the Maths challenge that is published in the Eliot Bank weekly and here.
