Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

Michaelmas & Advent Terms 2023



Dear Parents,

It was wonderful to meet so many of you during our recent parent consultations.  If you were unable to attend, please contact either the school office or speak to me to arrange a meeting. 

Thank you to all family and friends of our Year 2 Class who joined us for our class assembly and our RE celebration in October.                    

                                                         Mrs Breen and Mrs Gadd


A Few Things I would like to highlight:

  • Please ensure only essential equipment is brought into school, such as packed lunch, water bottle, PE uniform, reading record, reading book and homework.

  • PE this term will be on Fridays. Please can children have their full, clearly named, PE kit in school at all times, including socks for girls who normally wear tights as part of their school uniform. We would appreciate that earrings are removed for PE days.
  • Homework will usually be given out on Fridays and expected in the following Friday. Details of homework will be explained to the children and will be available for you to read on Teams in the Year 2 folder.  Each week children will receive a set of spellings to learn and a piece of written work or some maths calculations.
  • Children are also encouraged to read daily at home, reading aloud to an adult who can discuss the text with them. Reading is to be recorded in their reading record.
  • Reading records can also be used as contact books between home and school.

In DT, we have been making and tasting traditional foods and drinks enjoyed in England and India.

We enjoyed strawberry and banana smoothie often drunk in England.

We enjoyed mango lassi, a traditional drink from India.

In science we have been investigation the uses of everyday materials.

We tried to find out: What material makes the bounciest ball?

In maths we have been partitioning our numbers using Part-Whole Models.
