Year 2

Welcome to

Horse Chestnut Class

A big welcome to Year 2! It is so nice to finally be able to welcome you all back to Lumbertubs Primary School. I am really excited to continue on our learning journey together and catch up on all the time and fun we missed out on last 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. 



Please have your child’s reading record in school every day 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. The children will also be bringing home a Read Write Inc take home book that is to help reinforce the phonics teaching they have had in school. We have also sent home a Reading Eggs login for you to use at home! 


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. Children will also have 5 spellings to practice and learn each week, these are words that children are expected to know how to read and spell by the end of Year 2.



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 £1 a week. If we do not receive this money your child will get fruit only.  A cup of juice is also available at morning play and the children have access to water throughout the day.  You may wish to send in a water bottle from home. Please make sure this is named.


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