Important Information for 2B

All children in the school are rewarded for reading and for learning at home. They will receive a merit every time they read and complete some homework and it is recorded in their log.


15 merits = Bronze

20 merits = Silver

25 merits = Gold



At the end of the half term the children's merits will be converted into learning loot to spend in the homework hut. Please support the children with their learning at home. 


Children are also rewarded within our classroom for reading 50 times and they will receive a bookmark and a prize.


50 merits = Purple


Happy reading!



Home Learning Online


Your child has logins in the front of their red home learning diaries. These logins can be used to access different programs that we use in school and could be used at home to further their learning. Please let us know if you need new logins or you need any support with these.


Bug Club

This is a website where children can access books that are tailored to the book band that they are  reading within school. It also includes questions to check their understanding and gives rewards too! This can be accessed on tablets as well as laptops. This reading can then be recorded in their diaries to earn more merits. 


Purple Mash

This is another educational website that your child can access. It has games and activities for all areas of the curriculum. 


PE days in 2B are:

Indoor PE - Wednesday

Outdoor PE - Friday


Children should come into school on PE days wearing PE kit, they will remain in PE kit for the entire day.

Please ensure children are wearing the correct kit and long hair is tied back. Children are allowed to wear plain tracksuit tops and bottoms in the cooler weather.





Children will be assessed on their phonics and spellings each Friday.

We will update the weeks spellings on the class webpage each week so your child can prepare for their Friday quiz.


Spellings will begin with the Year 1 and 2 common exception words. Children ideally need to be able to read and write these words by the end of Year 2.


Children will be given the opportunity to practise these spellings each morning. 


This week our spellings are:

Weekly Spellings w/c 23rd May
