Dear Parents, Carers & Pupils,
Welcome to Year 2 at Raglan Primary School!
Each half term parents will receive a class curriculum overview of the topics we will be covering and other important dates. Curriculum overviews will be sent home via Schoolcomms, alternatively please click here for the Class Curriculum Overview page on the website.
In each classroom, there is a tray for books that need changing. Children who have finished their book and need a new one must place their book in the tray a the beginning of the day.
Reading: Please read to an adult for at least 15 minutes each day. Please discuss the texts that you read and ask your children questions about what they have read and their opinions of the text.
Spellings: Spelling home learning will be sent home weekly and will be linked closely with phonics learned during the week. Spelling is sent home on Friday and is due the following Tuesday.
Times tables: Please practice times tables regularly. Please start with 2’s, 5’s, 10’s and 3’s.
A termly home learning jigsaw will be sent home closely lined to the topics covered in class. Children are to complete a piece each week and this will be due on Tuesday.
Please ensure that PE kits are in school every day. They must be labelled. When the weather is cold, please could children have jogging bottoms in their PE kit in case we have PE outside. We have PE twice a week. One session is taken by specialist PE coaches. Please also send your child into school with a named water bottle every day.
We are hoping to go on lots of exciting educational visits during the year and would greatly appreciate help to make sure these can take place.
We have a ‘soft start’ in the morning. This means that children can enter the school 10 minutes before the official start time.
Children must be at school each morning by 8.55 a.m. for KS1 children. Children are the responsibility of parents/carers before school and should not be in the playground unsupervised before this time.
Please refer to the Behaviour and Relationships policy on the website. Please ask your child about these!
Please ensure ALL uniform is clearly labelled.
Girls’: Blue shirt, school tie with logo, sweatshirt with a v-neck or cardigan with school logo, navy skirt or pinafore dress, smart, plain navy trousers – no leggings
White socks or navy tights, blue/white check dresses (summer). Plain black, brown or navy leather shoes.
Boys’: Blue shirt, school tie with logo, sweatshirt with a v-neck with school logo, grey trousers, long or short (Navy shorts are not acceptable – only short, grey trousers), grey socks. Plain black, brown or navy leather shoes.
We kindly ask that no children bring a pencil case into school as all resources will be provided. All toys should be left at home. Children are allowed to have one keyring on their book-bag.
We hope this year is fantastic and we have lots of fun! If you have any questions then please come and find us.
Mrs McLaughlin/Ms Ramsdale and Mr Rob
