Year 2 PE days are on Thursday and children are expected to bring their PE Kit (House PE shirt, shorts and trainers or plimsolls) into school on those days. They should also bring a tracksuit for colder conditions.
In order to keep children in class as much as possible, we would encourage pupils to bring in a clear bottle of water should they want a drink during the school day. This should be named and can be kept in the classroom
Just a reminder that toys should not be brought into school and should be left at home.
In Year 2, children will continue to be provided with a piece of fruit at break time.
The Year 2 classrooms are fully equipped with the stationery that the children will need in order to learn. However, if children wish to bring in their own pencil cases they are welcome to, they will be allowed to keep these in their book bags. We encourage children not to bring in anything to school that is valuable to them, as we cannot account for things going missing.
