Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to Class Two, we hope you had a wonderful Summer Holiday!

We are looking forward to all the wonderful and interesting things we will find together and we are sure the year will be full of fun and smiles.

We will start with our Mission Week. The whole school will take part in lessons and activities linked to the theme of “Our Common Home” with climate change and what we can do to help combat the effects as a focus. The children will explore these themes over the week beginning with a whole school assembly on Monday. The work generated will be displayed around the school to remind us of our mission week and the links to our mission statement. We are using the Cafod “Zero Hero” resources to plan our work - check out the campaign at

Following this week our focus will switch to "What does it take to be a great explorer?" We will look at a number of great explorers and uncover the contributions they have made to the world as well as looking at the potential explorers of the future.

In Class Two children will change their Reading Books on a Weekly Basis. The day your child is required to bring their book into school may change and subsequently can be found within their reading record.

The children will also be given a Spelling Sheet on a Tuesday to be completed and returned on the following Friday.

Homework will be given on a Friday and should be completed and returned to school on the following Tuesday. Some homework will be given in a written format and some will be an online activity. Your child will be given usernames and passwords to access this work, please keep them safe and secure.

P.E. in Class Two will take place on a Monday and a Tuesday. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their P.E. kit. This is a school wide change this year. Your child can wear their school jumper or cardigan as well as a coat over the top of their P.E. kit. In cold weather please allow your child to wear tracksuit bottoms if needed. If your child suffers from veruccas please ensure they have pumps or it is covered up adequately if the P.E. session is indoors as trainers and socks will be taken off.

We highly encourage all children to bring in a water bottle to school every day. St. Jerome's water bottles are available from the school office for £1. All children in Class Two have access to a piece of fruit each morning break time at no charge. In addition to this: Castlerigg cookies are available every Wednesday morning break time for 35 pence and toast is available every Friday break time for 20 pence. If your child would like to purchase any of these items they should bring in the required money on each day and keep it safely in their tray.

We look forward to an amazing year in Class Two! If you have any questions, concerns or require any further information please ask, our door is always open.
