Class photos- Tuesday 28th June

As we are having class photos on Tuesday all children have to come in their full school uniform. Please can your child bring their swimming kit in their bag as usual. Just for this week the children will get changed from their school uniform. There is no need to pack PE kit as well. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Change of date for Year 2 Project Day

The year 2 project day will now be on Monday 11th July. Parents can still come in at 2.30pm on this day to see the projects. I am aware the year 5 project day is also on this day. Parents will be able to go to one class first then visit the other class after. You have an extra bit of time to make your projects absolutely amazing! I cannot wait to see them all. Thank you to parents for your continued support!

Sea Life Centre- Thursday 16th June 2022

How exciting, our Sea Life Centre trip is next week! Here are some details for the trip. Children are to arrive at school for normal time in full school uniform. However don’t be late as we will be leaving at 9am! Your child will need a packed lunch as we won’t be back at school until 2pm. Your child may bring some money for the gift shop afterwards if we have time. This must be no more than £5 and your child is responsible for their own money. I would suggest putting the money in a small purse or envelope.


Looking forward to a wonderful day out with you all! 🐠🐬🦀

Fundraising for Ukraine

Next week we will be planting our own sunflowers to raise money for the Ukraine Humanitarian appeal. The sunflower is the national flower for Ukraine and the children decided they would like to do this to raise some money for the Humanitarian appeal. We are asking for a minimum donation of £1 for the children to participate in this and take their sunflower home. A payment will be set up on school money so that donations can be made through this. Please can you make this donation to school money by Thursday 7th April. Thank you for your continued support and generosity. 🌻 🇺🇦 

15.03.22- Assembly update

Just a quick reminder about costumes for the assembly.

Leprechaun- Green T-shirt and black jogging bottoms

Irish dancers- Black t-shirt, leggings and Irish dancing shoes.


Please could these be brought in a labelled plastic bag tomorrow (16.03.22) ready for Thursday. Thank you so much!

Miss Carey ☺️


Please can children come into school in school uniform tomorrow and every Wednesday. PE is now on Monday’s (dance) and Tuesday’s (swimming). Children will come to school in PE kit on these days. 

Your child has been sent home with lines to learn for our class assembly. Please make sure your child has learned these off by heart by Monday 7th March. Some children have prayers and these do not need to be known off by heart (it will say in the back of the slip).


A gentle reminder to bring in a glass jar on Friday for our world book activity. Please ensure it has a lid, no label and has been washed out.


Thank you for your continued support


Miss Carey ☺️


Please can your child bring a jar with a lid on to school on Friday 4th March. Please make sure this is washed out and the label has been removed as we will be decorating them.


Many Thanks


Miss Carey :)

Updates for after half term

After half term, Y2 will be swimming every Tuesday afternoon from 1.15-1.45 at Haden Hill Leisure Centre. 


Please ensure that your child comes dressed in PE kit on that day for ease of changing and brings their swimming kit in a bag. Kit needs to be trunks for boys and swimming costumes for girls. Children may bring goggles if they wish.


All children with long hair will be required to wear swimming caps so that their hair does not go in their eyes when swimming.


Due to this EBL will move to Monday afternoons. EBL research homework will be due on Mondays from now on. 

Have a wonderful half term!

Miss Carey ☺️

Week Commencing- 10.01.22

Happy New Year and welcome back to school. It was so lovely to see you last week Year 2 and we had a great start to the year!


Just a few updates regarding homework for this half term. Our EBL has now moved to a Tuesday afternoon for this half term. Like last half term your child will have a new research question every 2 weeks and it will now be due in for a Tuesday. Please ensure this is being completed in your child's research book. It is your child's responsibility to make Mrs Morris or myself aware if they have finished their research book. It is really important your child is competing their research homework as it allows them to develop essential skills ready for KS2 and later life! 


Spellings will still be given out every Friday and there will be a spelling test every Friday. The sheets do not need to be handed back in. The spelling sheet is for your child's practise at home.


Please ensure your child is reading to an adult every night and an adult signs the reading record. Again this is essential to ensure your child's progression.


I am looking forward to another great term with you!


Thank you for all your support, as always it is very much appreciated.


Many Thanks,


Miss Carey :) 

Dear Parents/ Carers,


As part of our Advent fundraising, we are trying to raise money to buy ‘World Gifts’ from CAFOD to help families living in poverty buy essential items such as food, water and hygiene products.

In year 2, we have decided to do a sponsored dance as our fundraising event! We will be doing this on Thursday 16thDecember. Our goal is to dance non-stop for an hour. Please contribute any donations you are able to on school money. We are holding this fundraising event instead of sending Christmas cards so it is not an additional expense for families.

Thank you so much for supporting this important cause. Our contributions to ‘World Gifts’ will truly help a family living in poverty. If you would like more information, please visit the CAFOD website.


Thank you again,

Miss Carey :)

EBL Research Question- 17.11.21

Apologies for not sending the research question out this week. The following research question for Wednesday is:


Who was Guy Fawkes and why do we celebrate Bonfire Night?

Things to think about:

  • Who was Guy Fawkes?
  • Why did they want to blow the Houses of Parliament up?
  • What happened in the Gunpowder Plot?
  • Why do we celebrate Bonfire Night?


Your child should have their research book at home. If they don't please complete this on a sheet of paper. The children have started this topic already so they may have some prior knowledge!


Many Thanks

Miss Carey :) 


Nativity information

Please can you ensure your child has their nativity lines with them everyday as we will be practising most days! Please can you encourage your child to know their lines off by heart by the end of this week (12.11.21). From the 15.11.21 I would really like children to be off their scripts so that they can really get into their roles, feel confident and most importantly enjoy it!


Children have been sent home with their Charanga logins and instructions on how to access the songs. It would be amazing if you could practice these songs at home. 

Thank you so much for your continued support. Well done year 2 for your hard work, keep going! This is going to be a very special performance!


Thank you 


Miss Carey ☺️

Week Commencing 1.11.21

I hope you have had a wonderful half term Year Two. We have a very fun-filled busy half term ahead of us! Please can you come in PE Kit tomorrow (1/11/21). On Tuesday we will be starting our Healthy Me topic in science. Please can you bring in one item of food packaging from any of the food groups (Carbohydrates, Fruit and Veg, Dairy, Protein and Fats, Oils, Sweets). If possible can you try and make sure the packaging is clean!  I am really excited to see you all!


Miss Carey :)

Date for your diary:

Open afternoon on Monday 11th October at 2.30pm. This is a lovely afternoon to share in your child's learning. You come to the classroom and sit with your child as they show you all the super work they have done this half term. We hope you can come. 


Your child was sent home with a Numbots login on Friday 10th September. Numbots is a brilliant interactive maths that the children can play on the computer or on iPads. It builds on their mathematical understanding, recall and fluency in their addition and subtraction. 

Their username and password is on the letter that was sent home and it is also on a sticker in the front of your child’s reading records. We have launched this in class today (14.09.21) so your child understands how to work the game. I really encourage you to use this at home as it is really fun and engaging. I will sometimes be setting it as homework and we will be using it regularly in class. 

Enjoy upgrading your robots Year 2! 🤖
