Important Information


Home Learning

We will be using this class page, our twitter page @SMAAAYear2 and Google Classroom to keep in touch with you at home.

Please find below some useful resources for children who are learning at home. 




It is really important for you all to keep reading everyday at home. You should aim for at least 10mins per day. Here are the log in details for Oxford Owl. On here you will find many reading books. Think about which colour band you were reading in school and start there. If you are not sure, send us a message and we can tell you where to begin! Enjoy!

In year 2 we say our prayers in the morning, before lunch and before we go home.  We also say the prayers, ‘Hail Mary’ and ‘Our Father’. 


Snack and Water

Your child can bring in water daily in a reusable bottle with a sports cap top.  We are a healthy school so we do encourage water only.

In key stage one, children are provided with a daily snack of fresh fruit.


School lunches

In key stage one, children are eligible for free school meals.  We are currently providing sandwiches for the children throughout the week. On Fridays fish and chips are also on the menu. 



Our PE day is Tuesday

On PE days the children can come to school dressed in their PE kits ready for their lesson.

Kits to be worn to school:

  • Yellow T shirt
  • Royal Blue shorts
  • Jumper/cardigan
  • Black pumps

Children can wear black joggers worn over their PE kit on cold days.




You will find below an example of our school’s handwriting style. Please encourage your child to practice their handwriting, and to start and end the formation of each letter in the correct place. 

Cursive Handwriting




Phonics Sounds: Set 1, 2 and 3

As well as learning these sounds, our main aim is for your child to enjoy listening to and talking about stories. 

When reading with/to your child you could: 

  • get them to tell you what is happening in the story,
  • ask them questions about the story,
  • talk about the characters, 
  • talk about what happens next,
  • ask them to retell the story,
  • discuss with them what part of the book they liked best.

Your help with this is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to working with you to help your child’s reading develop.
