Welcome to year 2

Finally, the children will compare the United Kingdom to another country from around the world recognising similarities and differences.

Homework is set on a Friday, and is due in by the following Thursday. Children should be reading to an adult at least three times per week for at least 15/20 minutes each time. Reading can take place with either the book sent home from school or an allocated book on your child's Bug Club. Each book must be recorded in your child's reading record, including any ebooks.
