Homework

Children are given Learning Logs which last 2 weeks based on what they are doing in class. Spellings and Timetables are at the back of the homework book. Children are expected to read daily. We also send home maths skills checks and ‘grammar hammer’ worksheets.

You may find the following documents helpful when reading with your child:

Coats

Coats and PE kit should be put on pegs outside the classroom.
Please name your child’s coat.

Toys

Please don’t allow your child to bring toys into school.

Money

All money brought to school for trips/visits must be put in a sealed envelope with the child’s name and class on and then placed in the post box in the Reception entrance area. No money is to be sent to the class teacher.

Transition

Transition to Year 3 from Year 2. There are changes for your child moving into Year 3. Please speak to us if anything is worrying you or your child so that we can have a smooth change from Year 2 to Year 3. To help your child we will work with you in developing their independence, especially at the start of the day.

Contacting a Teacher

Please make an appointment via the school office by emailing admin@oswaldroad.manchester.sch.uk, to arrange a mutually convenient time. If your child is going to be absent from school please ring the office on 0161 881 4266 and leave a message on the answer phone before 9.30 am. If you are collecting children for an appointment please remember to sign your child out at the school reception.
