In Nightingales we are enthusiastic to learn, helpful to each other and we work as a team.

Welcome to Nightingales

Welcome to Nightingales’ Class. We are a Year 2 class and our teacher is Miss Gilbert. We also have Ms Reed, Miss Wilbert and Mrs Laud who help us with our learning. 


Reading :  Your child will take home their school reading book each day. We ask that they spend time reading at home each day and record their reading within their Reading Record book. We ask that your child brings their reading book and Reading Record book to school each day.   They can do tests on Accelerated Reader after finishing their books if they have moved onto the Accelerated Reader scheme.

Spelling :  A spelling list, appropriate for your child,  will be provided  on a Monday. The children will have an assessment of these words on a Friday. A home spelling book will be sent home for your child to practise their spellings (we will show the children how to use this book in school). Please can we ask that the home spelling book is brought into school each day. 

PE (PE kit)

PE days are changeable, therefore it’s best to make sure PE kit (including outdoor clothing and trainers)are in school every day. Kit is sent home for washing every Friday and should be returned to school on Monday morning.

Please make sure that long hair is tied up on PE days, and earrings, if worn, are removed.
