Year Two

Welcome to Year 2!


Welcome to the class page for Year 2! We are proud to be a class of polite, hard-working children who try our best in all aspects of school life.


Throughout this year, we will build on the experience, knowledge and skills we gained in Year 1 to secure the Key Stage 1 standards. This will help us prepare for the new challenges we will face as we move into Key Stage 2 next year. 


Our first project is about castles, particularly Conisbrough Castle, with a focus on how life has changed since the middle ages. We will learn about what daily life was like for people who lived and worked in castles and explore the question ...

Are castles as important today as they once were?

Any extra research, work or creative tasks you can do to further support our learning on this topic will be greatly appreciated. Please send any extra work in to school with your child so that they can share it with the class!


With the help of Miss Buckley and Miss Kenny we have had a fantastic start to the year and are looking forward to building on our Year 1 learning to reach new standards in Year 2.


Please have a look around our class page to find out what we are learning about in each subject!

What have we been getting up to at school?


Your child will bring home a new book every Monday. This book is matched carefully to their phonics learning and will match the sounds we are learning at school. Please read each book a couple of times over the week to build up your child's decoding, accuracy and comprehension skills. 


Here are some questions you could ask your child to check their understanding:

Where did ...?

When did ...?

Who did ... ?

Why was ... feeling ... ?

Why did ... happen?

Why did ... say ... ?

What happened when ...?

How does ... make you feel?



Maths homework is sent out on a Friday and should be brought back into school by the following Wednesday. Spellings are sent out on a Monday and will be tested on a Friday in school.



Our PE day is Tuesday. We are only having outdoor PE lessons at the minute so please make sure your child has appropriate kit for colder weather.
