Year Two

Welcome to Year 2!


Our Class Page


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. 


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

    Have a read through our class newsletter to find out what we will be learning about during this term!

    What are we learning about this half term?


    Here's what we'll be learning about in each subject this half term:


    • In English, we will be writing a biography of one of the significant people we are learning about in History! Could you write your own biography of someone in your family?

    • In Maths, the  children will learn how to measure length, capacity and weight using different equipment. We will also focus on recognizing and counting coins.

    • Our Science lessons will be all about how we can protect our environment and take care of Planet Earth.

    • Our topic of ‘Spread the News’ will explore how we can spread the Gospel message through the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    • Our Topic lessons will focus on History this term. The children will study the seven continents and five oceans and finish by answering the question ...


    How have human rights heroes made a difference to our world?


    We will also be completing our SATs test this term. They will take place in the week beginning the 16th May.

    What have we been up to this half term?

    📚 Reader of the Week! 📖


    Your child will now bring a banded book home with them every day from school. They will also bring a Phonics book if they are still receiving Phonics support in school. Please read their book with them as often as you can and write how they've done in their reading record. Children who read three times a week are rewarded in school each Friday, and there is a prize once your child has read 30 times at home!


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

    Where did ...?

    When did ...?

    Who did ... ?

    Why was ... feeling ... ?
