Class Routines

Children need their PE Kit in school for their weekly lessons - anyone unwell for a lesson must bring a note.

Milk is taken after playtime by those registered with 'CoolMilk' and free fruit/vegetables are available for all to eat  at playtime.

Children go to the hall for their dinner at  11:50am each day. Meals are free for all.

Each week one child from each class will be selected for 'always doing the right thing' and will go to ALWAYS CLUB for an hour on Friday afternoon.

Curriculum Enrichment

Each term we try to help 'bring the curriculum to life' with an extra activity whether it be a trip, visit or visitor. We appreciate that these additional items often have a cost but they are an essential part of our successful school.

Planned items for Year 2 are:

2nd Novemer 2016 : Samuel Pepys - £5

18th January 2015: World War II - £5

March 2016: Puppets Workshop - £5

June 2016: Skipton Castle - £12

 

Homework

Year 2 children should be encouraged and supported to read every night.

There will be 2 pieces of homework each week, which will be set on a Friday and returned by following Friday. These will often be an English task on 'Bug Club' and a Maths task on a sheet. Sometimes tasks will be set in other areas of the curriculum using DB Primary, our Learning Platform.

At the end of each half term there will be a LEARNING LOG set. This will be related to one of the units of work that has been studied and may be completed in any style or using any media that the child prefers.
