Welcome to Class 2
Class 2 - Useful Information for parents
All pupils will need their PE kits in school for tennis on Wednesday afternoons.
On Fridays, pupils will need to come to school wearing their PE kit ready for PE at the Meres Leisure Centre. They will also need to bring their swimming kit (including swimming costume, towel, swim hat and goggles if needed) plus their school uniform to change into. Swimming will start on Friday 17th September.
Pupils will be given homework on Wednesdays, to be handed in the following Monday. Homework will usually consist of spellings, multiplication tables and an English, maths or science activity to complete. Once a term, pupils are also given a creative ‘My-Style’ piece of homework to complete.
Pupils are encouraged to read as often as possible. Each pupil has a reading record – please make a note in their reading records when they read at home. If pupils read 5 or more times in a week, they will earn a bonus House Point! We have a lovely selection of books at school which the children are welcome to borrow, but books from home, magazines etc. are all valuable reading.
Please ensure each item of your pupil’s school uniform is labelled with their name.
Leader in Me.
On a daily basis, the children try to demonstrate our core values within school. As we aim to practise them so often, they become good habits that we can use not only in school but also at home too.
This year we will be helping the children to develop a Growth Mindset. This aims to increase their resilience, perseverance and independence in their learning. Further information can be found by following the link below.
Homework is given out every Thursday, to be returned by the following Thursday. It will consist of both English and Maths and will include Mystyle projects as well.
Children will also be tested on their spellings and Times tables on a Thursday.
