Year Two

Welcome to Year 2!


Well done on the brilliant work progress you are making at school Year 2. Now that we are edging closer to the end of our school year, we are working on some tricky skills and concepts but you are doing brilliantly.

Keep it up! 👍


Miss Buckley and Miss Kenny 😄




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. 


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 are we learning about this half term?


    In our Project lessons this term, we will answer the question ...

    'How can we be the change we want to see in the world?'

     Where appropriate, lots of our lessons will link to this through work on the rainforests, deforestation and sustainability.



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

    • In English, we'll be learning about and writing our own non-chronological reports. We are also sponsoring a tiger through the WWF and can't wait to do some fund-raising by writing our own persuasive leaflets!
    • Our Maths lessons will focus on fractions, shape and position and direction.
    • Our Science focus will be on living things and their habitats. We will be exploring the micro-habitats in our local area and investigating why
    • different creatures are suited to living there.
    • In RE, we will be learning about the importance of rules and what can happen if we break them. We will learn about the importance of saying sorry and forgiving others. 
    • Our Project lessons will be centred around the rainforest! We'll begin by learning about the seven continents, the five oceans and the Equator before zooming in on South America.

    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 ... ?

    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 days are Tuesday and Thursday. Weather permitting, we will be having both PE lessons outdoors so please make sure your child has appropriate kit for colder weather.
