Each day your child will require their reading bag, PE kit and water bottle in school.
Please can you make sure their name is on all PE kits and uniform as we have found some clothes which unfortunately do not have names in and no-one has claimed them.
All pupils take turns in the role of helping hands for the day. We also have in class reward systems to celebrate your child’s work and behaviour, look out for our celebration board too.
We celebrate as a whole school once a week in celebration assembly
Look out for your child receiving Star of the Week certificate
What happens in Year Two?
Year 2 is the summary of your child’s work throughout their learning journey at Netherfield Infant and Nursery School and a time to prepare for their transition to Junior School.
During the Year your child will work towards the National Expected Outcomes for the end of Key Stage one. Throughout May your child will complete Statutory Assessments, known as SAT s, in Reading, Writing, Maths, Science, this is supported by on-going teacher assessment which will provide their Nationally recognised level of attainment. It is essential that your child attends school throughout May in order to access all tests.
You will be informed of your child’s attainment in the Summer Term of Year Two using the following descriptors / codes.
IGD in greater depth, meaning children working above Age Related
NS, meaning children working at Age Related
WT and PKF, meaning children working below or well below the Age Related expectations.
