Reading - Reading books need to be brought into school daily

As a school, we have moved from using the Ginn reading scheme and have now introduced the Oxford Reading Tree scheme.

Due to the number of books we have, the Oxford Reading Tree books will not be sent home with pupils.

Instead, we will provide a reading book that is reflective of the level of text pupils as reading in ORT for you to practise at home. Please try to listen to your child read as often as possible. Remember, 5 minutes each evening is better than 15 minutes once a week! 

Every time you listen to your child read, please ensure you record it in the yellow reading record book.

Try to talk to your child about the book they are reading, and ask questions about the characters, the setting (where the story takes place) and the plot (what happens in the story), as well as asking them to make predictions about what they think might happen. Pupils' understanding of the text is as important as their ability to read it and we will continually focus on these skills throughout Year 2. 


Homework - Homework is given out every Friday and we ask, where possible, that it is returned on a Monday

Please work with your child for them to complete their homework, but we kindly ask that pupils write their answers/responses themselves.

It is also important that pupils understand what they have written in their homework. So, if for example, they are asked to find information about something, they shouldn't simply copy information from the internet, but instead try to put it into their own words. 


Clothing & Personal Belongings

Please ensure that all items of clothing, as well as bags, packed lunch bags and water bottles, are labelled with your child's name


Packed Lunches

As a school, we encourage and promote healthy packed lunches. 


Playtime Snacks

Pupils are only permitted to eat fruit or cereal bars at playtimes. 



Pupils are only permitted to drink water throughout the school day. 

Please therefore ensure that if you are providing your child with a drink for use during the day, bottles are only filled with plain water (this does not include drinks with packed lunches)
