Welcome to Lent Term 2020.

Our Year 2 Termly newsletter will be sent home at the beginning of term and gives useful information about this term. 

Our Year 2 Knowledge Organisers outline what we are covering this term and will be sent home at the beginning of term. 

Please find the link to these two documents above. 

Dates and News  

Please see the diary dates tab on the website. 


Year 2 children currently have two PE session each week on Monday and Friday. Please ensure your child has the appropriate kit to suit all weathers, including indoor and outdoor footwear. 

Please visit our policy page to read our uniform policy. 


Homework is handed out every week on a Friday. Homework is expected to be handed in the following Wednesday. We will mark our Homework together in class on the Thursday.  Please see the attachment for this week’s homework task. 


See our English page for Reading updates. 

See our library page for recommended reading lists. 


Spellings are given out each Tuesday and tested in school the following Tuesday. These spellings may have a specific focus or may be taken from the Year 2 statutory spelling list. The children will need to learn the meaning of each word to support their vocabulary development. 

Times Tables 

By the end of Year 2, pupils should know their 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x tables confidently. Please help your child to practise their times tables at home. These will be tested each week on a Tuesday. 

The School Day 

Start of the day 

The playground gates open at 8.45am and children may come onto the playground. When the bell goes at 8.55am, children need to line up with their class, ready to be collected by their class teacher. 

Break time 

Children may bring in a healthy snack to eat at morning break. Milk is available for those who have signed up for it. 


Children can bring a packed lunch to school or sign up for a hot meal provided by Farm Kitchen. Please contact our school office for more information on how to sign up for school lunches.  

End of the day 

The school day finishes at 3.15pm. The teachers will open their classroom door that leads into the playground so they can be met by the adult picking them up. Please ensure your child is collected promptly. Children who are not collected on time will be taken to the School Office to wait. 

Supporting Your Child At Home 

You will find useful information and resources to help support your child at home on our curriculum pages. 

Secondary School 

We encourage parents and carers to start considering secondary school choices and visiting some schools. Applications need to be made early in Year 6 and some parents find that looking around schools over a couple of years allows them to get a better understanding of what the choices are. 

Parents Meeting Teachers 

Parents' Evenings are held in the Advent and Lent terms - a 10 minute appointment with your child's teacher to discuss progress. At other times, please feel free to come and see us if you have any concerns or worries about your child at school.  

For anything further, an appointment can be made to discuss your concerns in more depth. 

We want parents to feel welcome in our school. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to help, for example, by accompanying classes on outings. 


St Norbert’s is a 'Healthy School' and, as such, we would prefer not to share sweets, chocolate or cakes brought into the classroom. This includes birthday cakes. 

If you wish, you can send in a plate of fruit or donate a book to your child’s class and write a birthday message inside. (It is always best to check the suitability of a particular book, with the class teacher, before you purchase it.)
