Welcome to Class 2

Your child’s Class Teacher is Mrs Shire.

The Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Greenway, Mrs Yates and Mrs Jones.


The children are welcome in school from 8.45am each day to complete an early morning task in the classroom.  Parents are to drop off children at the door to the classroom where they will be met by a member of staff.  Registration is at 9.00 am.  The school day finishes at 3.15pm.

Children will be brought to the door to the playground for collection at 3.15pm and your child will be sent out when the teacher has seen you. Please do not collect directly from the classroom as it can cause congestion.

If your child is going to be collected by someone other than yourselves, you must inform the class teacher. Messages can also be given to the school office via phone or email. Each class does have an ‘alternative home collection’ board in the classroom.  Please let the member of staff on the door know and they will pass the message on or if something crops up during the day please phone the school office and they will get a message to us.


Your child will need to bring a named water bottle to school each day to ensure they stay hydrated.  (Children in Reception and KS1 are provided with a healthy snack for their mid-morning break.)

Children should come to school dressed in their PE kit and school jumper/cardigan on the days that they have PE lessons. Class 2's PE day is Thursday.

Please ensure bookbags are in school every day.


Reception children will not be set formal homework tasks until the Summer term.

Children are also expected to read 5x each week for at least 10 minutes. School reading scheme books will be sent home on a Monday and collected in on a Friday.  It is really important that these books are returned on a Friday as these books are needed by other children. It is imperative that your child reads the book provided by school. This is to support both their decoding, prosody and comprehension skills. Reading for pleasure is also really important and we encourage your child to read other books of their own choosing.  To support this children will have the opportunity to borrow a book from our school library.  Class 2’s library day is on a Wednesday.

Please record home reading in the home/school reading record book.

100 Club – All children at Ilchester Community Primary School are given the opportunity to become members of the 100 Club.  All your child has to do is read or be read to 100 times outside of their regular reading time in school.  They can read library books, school books or home books.  When your child has read or been read to please sign the 100 Club record chart which is stuck in the front of their reading record. Your child will receive a badge once they have read 25 times (bronze), 50 times (silver) and 75 times (gold). Once the children have read 100 times they will be given a 100 Club badge and the opportunity to select a book from the 100 Club basket as a prize. All children will have the chance to be in the 100 Club multiple times.

E Safety

The safe use of the internet is a main priority in our school and it is our aim to provide children with knowledge and skills for them to use the internet safely.

Within school we will be teaching them about safe and appropriate use of the internet and other technology.

It is the responsibility of parents/carers to ensure that children are using the internet and other technology in an appropriate manner at home.

We would expect our younger learners to only be using the internet with a responsible adult.  

The following website offers way in which to keep your children safe online:



Volunteers are very welcome in school. Opportunities range from reading with children, gardening, cookery, art, support on trips etc. If you are interested please speak to the class teacher or the school office.


The link between home and school is a vital one. Please do not hesitate to come and talk to us regarding your child and we will always arrange a time to talk. It is important that you make us aware of any changes at home e.g. medical, family circumstances etc so we can best support your child.

Extra information

In Class 2 we have a special helper of the day.  This is done in the order of the register and I will let your child know when it is their turn.  On this day they may bring in something for show and tell.  Please do not bring in toys or possessions on other days.

Don’t forget that there is lots of useful information on our school website https://ilchestercommunityprimary.com/
