Year 2 — 13 January 2017
Year 2 – Welcome to the Spring Term

12th January 2017

Dear Parents / Carers,

We hope you had a lovely Christmas break. Firstly, we would like to say a very big thank you again for the generous presents you gave us at the end of last term!  We are looking forward to a busy and exciting Spring Term.

Attached is a curriculum overview for this term – outlining the areas covered in each subject.

Further reminders:

  • P.E. lessons will continue to take place on Mondays and Wednesdays. However, it is advisable to keep kits in school in case of non-timetabled sessions.  We aim to go outside as much as possible so children will need their trainers.
  • Maths cards also need to be practised regularly at home and then brought in every Tuesday to be tested.
  • Spelling tests will take place on a Friday morning, as usual, so please make sure spelling books come into school every Friday.
  • Throughout the year, we encourage children to bring in a water bottle which should be taken home each evening.  Please note that bottles must contain water only, not juice, to comply with our healthy eating policy.

As usual, please feel free to come in and see us before or after school with any questions, concerns or information.  Thank you again for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

Nina Smith, Sarah Day and Ursula Anderson
