Class 2’s PE days this half term are Monday and Tuesday. Children come to school in their PE kit. They can come in their trainers. Pumps should permanently be in school in a pump bag for indoor wear.



We are learning about families and feeling cared for. We will also look at friendship and recognising hurtful behaviour.



Children in Class 2 should read all of their reading book out loud to an adult every night. This is recorded in the green reading record.

The book and record must come to school every day to be checked or exchanged.

The day the books are changed will vary depending on which reading group your child is in, but you will receive at least two per week. These should be re-read to ensure fluency.


Library visit

Class 2 had a wonderful visit to Barnoldswick library . They listened to some stories and made some cards.
