Copmanthorpe Primary School

Copmanthorpe Primary School

Welcome to Year 2

Please read the information below to find out more about the routines in Year 2.                       

Please note we are a NUT FREE SCHOOL, so children cannot bring any nut products to school in their packed lunches. We appreciate you co-operation with this.


Mrs Balding teaches in 2B and Mrs Irvin and Mrs Cunningham teach in 2CI, with teaching assistants Mrs Smith, Mrs Quick, Mrs Mead, Miss Dann and Mrs Patrick.  On a Wednesday morning, Mr Simms teaches PE to both classes.


Autumn Term

PE - Gymnastics and Invasion Games  (Afternoon Mile)

Forest Schools - child led/seasonal activities.


Children will take part in reading activities every day in school. Each week your child will bring home 2 guided reading books. Please use the reading diary to let us know how your child is getting on at home. 

Home-Learning Tasks

In addition to reading we will send home spelling homework each week. A longer piece of homework (Topic, Science, Maths or English) will be sent home at the end of each half term.

 PE and Forest Schools

Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.  We plan to get outside as much as possible for PE or outside learning  so please could  you ensure your child's PE kit is in school everyday, including trainers. We will continue to do Forest Schools every other Friday. Please ensure your child has wellies and waterproofs in school for this.

Everyday Items

Please bring in bookbags, a water bottle and coat every day.  We will send home book bags each evening.  Children do not need to bring a pencil case, thank you.

Medicines and Illness

Please ask at the office if you have any queries regarding medicines or need to update your child’s healthcare plan.  Please remember to leave 48 hours clear of sickness/diarrhoea before returning to school.


As we don't check bookbags, please let your child know if there is a letter or slip that they need to hand to their teacher in the morning.  Thank you.

As always, if you have any queries or concerns please come and talk to us, or send in a note or email to the office.

Many thanks,

The Year Two Team
