  • We work hard in Year 2 and we have lots of fun!
  • Children need to bring warm waterproof coats every day.
  • Children should wear comfortable shoes or trainers to school. 
  • Please make sure your child’s belongings are named. 
  • Children need to bring in a bottle of water every day (no fizzy drinks).
  • Children will bring home a scheme book to read. Please read with your child at home.
  • The children have milk and a fruit snack each day. This can be paid for via Parent Pay. 
  • Please do not bring any toys in from home - it is easy for things to get lost or broken.


Thank you for all your support. We hope that this will be a really happy and successful year for your child.
