Other important information
Spelling homework will be sent home every Friday for a spelling test the following Friday. At the beginning of each topic your children will have a home project to complete which forms part of the work for the topic.
Booster classes will start the first week in October. They start at the end of the school day and finish at 4.15 prompt. It would be great if you were at school by 4.10 to be ready to collect your child.
The booster classes are as follows:
Monday 3.15 to 4.15 Maths
Wednesday 3.15 to 4.15 Reading/book study.
Boosters are open to all children in the class.
SAT’s weeks for Y2 this year will be as follows:

It would be really helpful if you could plan any holidays around these dates as it is very important for your child to be in school on these dates.
