Welcome back!

Y2 Home learning 21.9.20

Information about the first official Y2 home learning can be found below on the grid. 

Playtime Fruit & Snacks

We are still offering fruit during playtime. We are unable to hand out bread sticks/rice cakes for obvious reasons but children can bring their own snack in from home to have if they wish. *Remember to consider healthier options and no nuts due to allergies.

Times-Table Challenge

On Friday 25th September we will be starting the Belmont timed times-table challenge. Your child will bring their grid home on Friday so you can see how they got on. Please remember that there is no expectation to move up a level every week. The average level at the end of Y2 is around level 4/5. 

PE Lessons

This year, children should come to school in their PE kit on the days they have PE to minimise the things we are bringing into school. See the timetable below for the days of the week where we are having PE. 

Apricots - Tuesday (indoor PE) and Wednesday (outdoor PE) 

Damsons - Wednesday (indoor PE) & Thursday (outdoor PE)
