Updates - Summer Term 1 

Miss Yates and Miss Christie are very excited to join the Year 2 team. Year 2 have been fantastic with the change of adults. We are so pleased with their mature attitude. 

SATs - This half term, Year 2 will sit SATs papers in reading and maths. These tests help inform our teacher assessments of the children to show where they are working at the end of Key Stage 1. The tests will be carried out in small groups over a period of two weeks. The tests will be administered in a low-stress, low-key way. Some children may not even be aware that they have taken them!

PE - Children should come to school dressed in their PE kits on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Tuesdays we do athletics, on Wednesdays we do dance and rounders and on Thursdays we do cricket. Hair should be tied back and jewellery should be removed for PE lessons.  

Snack - Toast is now ordered and paid for online. Please ensure snack is booked by Sunday evening. We also provide children with fruit.

Hot Dinners and Snack 

Please ensure hot dinner and snack choices are completed using the online system by Sunday Evening.  Alternatively, children can bring in their own packed lunch (nut free) if they wish to do so. Children should be able to access the items in their lunchboxes themselves - opening packaging, small tubs etc.

Children in Year 2 are provided with free fruit each day. The type of fruit varies each day and we do not know ahead of time what will be provided. Your child is welcome to bring in a piece of fruit from home if they would prefer. Children also have the opportunity to have a piece of toast instead of fruit. The cost of this is 25p per day (£1.25 per week). To be paid online  

Children should to bring their full water bottles in daily. We are a healthy school so please fill water bottles with water only. 

 

Medication 

If your children needs to take medication during the school day, please complete a form at the school office. Medication sent into school should be clearly labelled with the pupils name, dosage and storage requirements. Medication must be given to a member of staff by the adult responsible for the child. If your child needs an inhaler or epipen in school, please ensure this is sent into school and again handed over to the class teacher. Please make a note of the expiry date before sending into school and ensure that a replacement is sent into school in advance of the expiry date.
