Hello Year 2's,

We hope you have all had a lovely summer and are really looking forward to seeing you all back in school on Wednesday. We have some fantastic topics planned for this year and can't wait to share them with you!

Our start time is 8:45am and we finish at 3pm. This is through the entrance near the bus stop.

Please can you bring in the home learning we set at the beginning of the summer for us to display some in the classroom?

Just a reminder the only things you can bring into school is your water bottle (filled with water) and a lunch box. Fruit snacks will still be provided by school for playtime.

Our PE days and Tuesdays and Thursdays so they are the days you need to come in your kit.

 

Take care,

Mrs McDonald and Mrs Robinson
