Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


We know that school looks and feels a bit different at the moment but the children have been fantastic at getting used to the new social distancing and cleaning routines we are asking them to follow.  This involves: lining up in the morning, at play-times and at the end of day with a socially-distanced gap between them and the person in front of them; using hand sanitiser, regular hand-washing and when they sneeze on their hands during the day.  We are reminding the children about using tissues to “Catch it, Bin it, Kill it” and about trying to use their elbow to sneeze into rather than their hands (for further details, please refer to the ‘Return to School Risk Assessment’ in the News and Events section of the website). 


Welcome to term 4! 


It is great to be teaching you at school again! This term our theme is 'Movers and Shakers'. Click the link to take a look at the curriculum map to find out more about what we'll be learning.

25 book challenge!

I know we can't go on holiday at the moment, but how about a holiday to a fantasy land? Well, a trip to outer space would be grand. Seeing Horrid Henry’s place or Hundred Acre Wood, that would be ace! Maybe over the mountains to Giant Country? They’re only round the corner, not hard to travel to, if that tickles your fancy then you know just what to do…..pick up a book!  


We have carefully selected 25 fantastic books for you and we challenge you to see how many you can read whilst you are in year 2. Make sure you let your teacher know every time you read one of the books on the list so that it can be recorded! At the end of the year, the person who has read the most books will receive a prize! We have all of these books in school so if you don't have a copy at home then you can borrow them from school. We will then keep our fingers crossed that we might be able to visit libraries again on 12th April!


Let's get reading!

Book Challenge

Welcome to term 3!

This term our theme is...



The theme is a science based topic and we will be conducting lots of experiments including 'Do all balls bounce?' we will be making predictions and recording our results.  In literacy we will be focusing on instructions and the importance of instructional language using imperative verbs and adverbs.


In Maths we are learning about fractions, time, addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.  We will be working hard to use all of this knowledge in our problem solving and reasoning too! 


Children will be given reading books to take away to read at home, they will be changed regularly. Please ensure that your child is reading at home and that their reading log is signed.


A whole school decision has been made to ask that children come to school, and stay in their PE kits, on PE days.  In Year 2 this term, PE takes place on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Please make sure your child has trainers or appropriate footwear so they can be safe and active during these sessions.


We understand that it is difficult for parents to speak to the teachers at the moment.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Year 2 teachers at the following addresses:
