Red 2

Dear Parents and Carers,


There will be three staff working in Red 2 this year; Miss Downer, Ms Corrigan and Ms Ankrah. If you have anything you wish to ask or discuss, please feel free to catch us in the playground at home time when we have dismissed the children. If you'd like to make an appointment to see Miss Downer, please let her know or contact the school office.

Children will be given spellings each Friday. Please help them practice every week so that they are prepared for a spelling test on Friday. There will usually be maths homework too.  The maths topic will be something which we will be focusing on the next week in class so it will really help if you do the maths work with your child so that they have some prior understanding before the lesson.

In addition, we will be sending home Independent Learning Project ideas. Each half term we will invite parents and carers in on a designated day to celebrate the projects.

Book bags
We ask that you continue to read with your child every day. We try hard to develop a love of reading in the children and this is so much easier for the children if they have fond memories of reading at home.

Ms Corrigan changes the book bags every day but will only change the book if an adult has signed the reading log. Please let us know how your child got on with the book to help us choose books that are suitable for them and that they enjoy.  Your child must bring their book bag every day, even if they don't want a new book that day.

Our PE day is Friday. Please make sure that your child has their PE kit including suitable trainers every Friday. They are welcome to leave their kit in school each week and take it home during the holidays.

We look forward to working with you throughout the year,


The Red 2 Team
