Update for Week beginning: Monday 15th July
It’s the final week before we break up! What a fantastic, fun-filled year we’ve had with your children! We’ve seen them grow and blossom this year, and we know that each one of them will be fantastic in Year 3. Next week we will be doing some transition tasks to get the children ready for next year; on Wednesday afternoon your child will meet their new teacher and spend the afternoon with them.
We hope you all have an amazing summer holidays and that your children enjoy a well-earned rest!
There will be no spellings this week. Please spend the summer revising the spellings in the back of your child’s home/school diary.
As we are now reaching the end of half term, please could you return any library books from school which you may have at home.

Times tables: Your child has been given a log in for Times Tables Rockstars, which is a program where they can practise their times tables in a fun, engaging way. Please visit https://ttrockstars.com/login to log in and use the login details which have been stuck in your child’s home/school book.
General Information: It’s great to see so many of the Year 2 children join Mrs Jacobs on a Friday lunchtime in the library for Book Club. Please remember to return your library book on a Friday if you wish to choose a new one.
Please can you make sure that all items belonging to your child are clearly labelled so that they can be returned easily should they go missing.
Finally, please ensure your child has their Academy Home Diary in school every day.
