Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Will be updated September 2018 - thank you for your patience. 

This page is all about what class 2 are learning each term. It may show pictures of work and activities that the children have done and look at some of the things we will be learning. It will also include homework and skills that class 2 children need to be practising at home.


Welcome to year 2. I am looking forward to the Autumn term. This term the children can really get stuck in to the topic especially with our learning environment of a castle which will be engaging for the children.


Our topic this term is "towers, turrets and tunnels". We will be taking more of a novel study approach and looking at reading into writing. Our book that we are focusing on this term is the egg by M P Robertson. We are going to be doing lots of creative work this term including box modelling and lots of science investigations. 


Just a few reminders:

  • in a morning you can support your child by reading a book with them, completing a morning task, practising spellings or correcting work.
  • PE is every Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • you can practise your child's targets with them at home for each subject which will be given in the upcoming parents evening. Any target practise they do at home and brought into school will earn your child class dojos
  • there is a list of book colours displayed in the classroom so the children know what colour book to take home and read. You can exchange books every morning or after school if needed.
  • at the end of each day one group's personal organiser will be collected in to record down a new book they can take home. We will use this to also reward the children each time they read at home.
  • an exciting family project will be given out for the children to complete.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Homework


The children do not need to spend a lot of time completing work at home but it is essential that they do short regular practise of the following:                                                                                                                                           

  • spellings
  • reading
  • target practise
  • SATs practise (using school website)
  • topic work


Every Thursday we will be having our own class collective worship. The children will have time to reflect on the morals behind stories and what we can learn from them. Please encourage this through morning prayer. The children may write a special prayer in a morning that we can share and this will be kept in our special prayer book.


If you have any queries about anything please don't hesitate to ask. We are always happy to help.


Thank you
