Dahl Class Year 2

Welcome to Dahl Class!


Year 2's day is from 8:50am - 3:20pm and they come through Gate B (the car park gate). 


You can use this page of the website to find out about Year 2's weekly timetable, what topics we will be studying during the current term and throughout the year, and find out what each week's homework is.


Homework is due in on a Friday. Reading books will be changed on a Wednesday and a Friday when possible, but please ensure that your child brings their reading book in to school every day. Friday will also be PE days so please ensure that your child comes to school dressed in a dark tracksuit or sports clothes with trainers, their hair is tied up and if possible earrings are removed. 


We will also add details of the fun activities we have been taking part in.


We hope the children will have a fantastic year with us in Year 2. 

If you have any questions please do come and see us.

Miss Orpin and Mrs Manwaring.
