PE for Year 2 will be on a WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.
All children can now come into school on this day in their full PE kit. This will be a plain white t-shirt, black bottoms and suitable footwear.
Children can continue to bring in their own water bottle that will remain on their desk all day for easy access when needed. PLEASE remind your child to bring home their bottle daily for washing and refilling
We will be providing the children with a list of words on a Friday in their home spelling book. Please encourage them to practice these and then return them to school on a Friday ready for their test! We will be celebrating those children who beat their score each week!
All children will be bringing home 2 phonetically decodable books each week on a Friday. These books match the level the children are reading at and should be read with parental support. Children will also be bringing home a reading for pleasure book that the child has chosen to share happily with someone in your household PLEASE ensure all books are returned by Wednesday the following week. PLEASE take the time to read with your child every week at home and sign their reading record.
We love reading at St Luke's and our classroom is over flowing with so many wonderful books including fiction and non fiction. What ever you like to read, here in school we will have something for you!
It is so important to continue this love of reading at home. This could be on your own, with a friend or with a family member. Spending 30 minutes a day reading will really help to improve your reading skills and your vocabulary.
Homework will be being provided each week on a Friday.
PLEASE make sure this is completed over the weekend.
There are additional activities that you can complete at home over the half term for extra DOJO POINTS!

In Maths this half term we are going to be looking at fractions, time, shape and then lots of revision getting us Year 3 ready.
These TopMarks games can help with their Maths fluency at home. They are free and good fun!
This half term we will be focusing lots on our writing and making sure we are including all the Year 2 criteria! We will be writing recounts about our trips to Church and Blackpool, creating a new ending for the story 'Class 2 at the zoo' and doing some story writing based around the story 'Lizzie and the birds'.
In Science, we are learning about plants. We will be looking at what they need to survive and how to care and look after a plant.
This half term we will be learning about the History of Bury Football Club. We will be looking at why they were famous and studying the game of football and how it has changed over the years.
In Religious Education this half term we are going to be answering the big question 'Why is the Church a special place for Christians?'
Always here to help!
If one of our pupils ever has a worry in school, they know that they can speak to one of the adults in their classroom or one of the designated safeguarding leaders (DSLs). The DSLs have their photographs displayed on posters all around school, including in the classroom.
