Have a positive attitude towards learning
Be resilient when things become tricky

Summer Term – Deadly 60 - Living things and their habitats
Which days will Year 2 have PE?
Fairford – will be having PE on Mondays & Thursdays

When do Year 2’s reading records need to be handed to the teacher?
Reading records need to be in school every day - some children will read with an adult daily, others will be less frequent. As class teachers we would love to read more with every child, we will aim to read with them as often as possible.
Will my child be going on any trips this year?
These are the trips will have planned so far... Waitrose, Holst Museum, Wilson Museum, Sports Events at ASA, Pizza Party (celebrate SATs), All Things Wild, Literature Festival, Science Festival.
