Pudsey Waterloo Primary School

Key Dates and Information

Friday 20th March

Dear Parents/Carers,


We would like to thank you for your support during this testing time and we want you to know that this week your children have been amazing. We will continue to support all children while they are not in school so please encourage them to use their learning pack and adapt things as needed. I know there has been lots of tears and frustration from all teams in school. We will miss seeing those smiles in a morning, but we know it is to keep you all safe and healthy in the long run. If you have any concerns you can contact school or if you need any additional support feel free to use your support network to help. 
We hope things become safer soon enough and we can resume normal ‘play’...from a sad year 2 team

Our PE day is Tuesday (Changed to Wednesday in autumn 2). Please come to school wearing your PE kit and sensible shoes.

Please ensure your child has a PE kit that includes -a plain white t-shirt, black or navy tracksuit, black or navy shorts for the warmer weather and any comfortable trainers. Alternatively children can wear the blue Pudsey Waterloo PE t-shirt and hooded top. Please note that children need to wear plain PE kit and it must not have branded labels on.

Please ensure that children bring a water bottle. Earrings need to be taken out or covered up with plasters/tape. Thank you for your cooperation with PE uniform, it does ensure we all look the same and smart.


Library Books

Every Wednesday afternoon year 2 will visit the school library where they can choose a reading book to take home. This book must be returned the following week to then choose a new one. If the book is not returned then they will not be able to take one out until the previous book is returned. Please encourage your child to access the library and read the additional texts as it does support their learning and building up fluency.



Your child can change their reading book once they have finished reading it. You are more than welcome to read the book more than once or change it straight away if your child does not like it. Books can be changed first thing on a morning when children come into school and if they need support doing this a grown up will support them. 

Reading is so important and we ask that you read a little each night, we know this is not always possible, but your support st home with reading is key. If you are able to ask questions on what your child has read this also supports their understanding. Feel free to speak to one of the teachers if you need any sample questions.
