Hello Class Ruby,

It’s another strange week, working from home.

Hopefully you’re getting used to our new program Seesaw.

There should be 4 activities a day – Maths, English, Phonics and EOW.

Any questions, please message on Seesaw, Email or phone the School Office.

Welcome Class Ruby, to Year 2 Autumn Term


Please remember your coat, drink bottle and book bag every day. We are starting at 9.00 and finishing at 3.15


Our P.E day is Monday so pleased come dressed in outdoor PE kit, trainers and a warm top/hoodie.


We all change our reading books on Mondays and Fridays but can also have the opportunity to change them on other days if we need to. Every day our diaries are checked and we are given a raffle ticket every time we read at home to put into a prize draw.


Take a look below at some photographs of our week and read about what we are doing.
