Year 2

Welcome to

Horse Chestnut Class

A big welcome to Year 2! It is so nice to be able to welcome you all back to Lumbertubs Primary School. I am really excited to begin our learning journey together, it's going to be a great year! 



We will have PE lessons on MONDAY and TUESDAYPlease ensure that your child comes to school in appropriate PE kit. Their kit should consist of: plain black bottoms, a plain white top, a plain red jumper or fleece and plimsolls or trainers. Trainers may be more suitable for winter in the playground. Jewellery, including earrings, must be removed and left at home and long hair must be tied back. Children cannot take part in PE lessons if they have earrings in. 


Home Learning

Your child will have a short maths or English activity to complete each week to encourage their familiarity with key vocabulary and terminology. It will be based on the work we have completed in class that week. Home Learning is handed out every Friday and must be handed in before the following Wednesday. We have also sent home logins that give the children access to Reading Eggs and Math Seeds. These websites are a great way to consolidate the learning they are doing in class.



Fruit is provided to your child each day free of charge, however, if you wish for your child to have additional morning snack then snack money is £5 per half term. There will be a 2 week window at the beginning of each half term to pay. Snack money for this half term is due by Friday 29th April. However, we can now no longer accept cash at the classroom door. Please make your payment through Parent Mail. Thank you for your co-operation.



Please have your child’s reading record in school on Thursday and Friday so we can check if they have read 5 times in the week and have become an Extreme Reader! Your child will bring home 2 reading books a week and we will change them every Friday. Please look after the books that are sent home; if a book is lost then you will be charged £5. There is also some more information about how you can still use Reading VIPERS at home if you click on the link below.


If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. We will be happy to help.
