Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to Year 2, we have two classes which are 2B and 2K. Our PE days are Monday and Thursday, children should come to school in PE kit on those days. Spellings are given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday and homework and reading books are sent home on a Thursday and should be handed in on a Monday. If you have any questions about the homework, please speak to your child's teacher on a Friday.
