Year 2 Week Ahead Information

24 February 2017

An overview of the week ahead in Year 2

  • Year 2 demonstrating their measuring skills

Information and Reminders.

In the Early Years and Primary school, we are encouraging all of our students to look super smart in their uniforms and would really like your help to ensure this.

Please could you make sure your child has a school cardigan or jumper to wear in the colder weather and avoid using non-school items, as children will be asked to remove these. Also, girls should wear black tights to keep warm and avoid wearing leggings. If your child wants to wear extra layers to keep warm in the colder weather, please ensure these are in keeping with the school uniform colours.

As it is still cold, all children should bring a warm coat to school so they can go outside at break and lunchtimes.

Thank you as always for your support.
