Year 2 - Amethyst

Term information for Amethyst class



 I hope you have all had a lovely rest with your families and are ready to begin another busy term in school J the final one your child will spend in Year 2! It was so lovely to see so many of you at our Sports afternoon last term and we hope you enjoyed yourselves.

This term our topic has a geography focus and is called ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’. Please see the topic web on the class webpage for more information about what else we will be learning about this term.  


Reminders or useful information

  • Please ensure your child ALWAYS has suitable clothing in school. Please name ALL school uniform, including drinks bottles and snack pots. Forest school learning will continue so please ensure your child brings weather appropriate clothing for these days as well in a carrier bag. Please provide waterproof clothing as well as warm things. If your child takes their wellies home please ensure they are back in school for Monday as we do tend to wear them if we have had some rain.


Home Learning

It is very important that your child completes their home learning. If they are unable to do so, please pop in and speak to one of the adults in the class or jot a note in your child’s contact book. The timetable for home learning is as follows:









Reading and handwriting (due in on Friday)


Maths (due in the following Monday)



Reading at home

Please continue to refer to the Reading Vipers Question Stems when reading with your child. Please also jot down any useful comments your child makes into their Monkey book reading record. These can be found in the term information on the class webpage.


Healthy snacks

Fruit and vegetables will still be given to children this year as part of the Government scheme. The children will be able to choose a piece of fruit or vegetables to eat for their morning snack. If you still wish to provide your child each morning with a healthy snack, this is fine.




Please provide your child with the correct uniform so that they can participate in PE- indoor and outdoor kit. Children must not wear any jewellery on PE days. Stud earrings can be worn but must be covered with tape. Long hair also needs to be tied back. All uniform must be clearly labelled as it can go astray and is very hard to find the rightful owner without it being named. PE will begin during the first week back.


I hope you have all the information that you need for the term ahead, if you have any further queries please pop in and see us or look at our class page on the school website.



Yours Sincerely


Miss Catlin
