Welcome to Nightingales
Our teacher is Mrs Ferry!
In Year 2 we work hard, always do our best and remember to have some fun!
Homework will be given out on Thursday and returned the following Monday (Maths and Grammar & Punctuation).
Spellings are given out on Monday and expected to be practised regularly during the week.
Reading books are changed by the child with guidance from teaching staff. Each child is expected to read regularly at home (at least 3 times per week).
P.E. is on Friday and each child is expected to have a full kit with their name clearly labelled.
Any money sent into school needs to be in a sealed envelope with the child’s name clearly labelled and what the money is for.
