 HOMEWORK 

  Reading   

In Year 2 reading is a form of homework. We strongly encourage the children to read with their parents every day for at least 30 minutes. The children will be taking their reading level books home and they will be given a reading record to log their reading sessions at home. 

Each half term we would like a project based on the theme. These will be celebrated in assemblies and amongst the class. I hope you all produce something a bit different. Maybe start thinking of ideas soon!

Each child has a green homework book.

Spelling shed is available for each child to do at home.   

 CLASS DOJO 

This is a program that gives points (dojos) to the children for doing something nice. It could be helping others, answering teacher's questions or completing their tasks quickly and correctly. Each week the dojos are counted and the winner will be named "The dojo of the week" and will be given a prize.

 SCHOOL MEALS 

The children in Years 0, 1 and 2 are entitled to free school meals. We strongly encourage the children to have a hot school dinner, especially in winter months. A selection of fruits is provided in class on an everyday basis or they can bring a little snack to have at break times.  Menus are available at the School Meals quick link above.
