Welcome back everyone! 

A very warm welcome to Year 2! It has been a very strange year, but we are so happy to have you all back at All Saints. We know that lots of children have been looking forward to their return to school, but equally so, many children may be feeling worried or anxious about it. We want to assure you that we will be doing everything we can to settle children back into their routines, keep them safe and re-establish friendships which we know they have been missing.


We will work hard to catch up on the learning that children have missed out on over the past months and make Year 2 a happy and productive one for all. Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs McElwee, Miss Acton and Mrs Atherton


Important Reminders



Maths homework will be given out every Friday and should be returned to school by the following Wednesday. For the first half term, we will be focusing on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. Children will also have a colour banded reading book and spellings to learn for their test on Fridays.

PE Kit

For Outdoor Games the following kit is needed: A t-shirt and a pair of shorts. Children can wear a pair of leggings/ jogging pants for Games if they wish. They must wear a pair of trainers or pumps for Games. Children will not be allowed to take part in their school shoes, for safety reasons. Children who wear stud earrings must be able to independently take these out for PE sessions.


Spellings will be given weekly. Time to practise at home is essential, and will really help to improve your child’s writing. Spellings will be given out on Mondays, and children will be tested on Fridays.

Reading and Book Bags

Your child will read regularly in class during Guided Reading and Shared Reading sessions. Each week, they will be given one colour banded book to read at home and a story book to share with an adult. Your child will have a reading record which will be checked regularly by an adult.


Please send book bags into school every day.
