In year 2....


We have a session of Numeracy first thing in the morning. We do mental arithmetic, solve problems, master concepts and we reason our findings.

After play, we have our literacy session. Everyday we do phonics, lots of reading, writing, spelling and handwriting.

We link all of our topic work, which includes the subjects: history, geography, science, religious education and PHSE (social and emotional aspects of learning and personal, health and social education), art and design, design technology and music.

Our current topic investigates the question: How would you survive as an explorer?



PE takes place on a Tuesday. PE kit should include black shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt, a jumper/jacket and suitable shoes/trainers for outdoor games. 



Children will have a book in school which is closely linked to their phonics group and will read with an adult in school as often as possible. 

Your child’s progress in reading will be greatly aided by reading with an adult at home. 

Your child will also bring a reading book home which is closely linked to their phonics knowledge and this will be changed weekly. However, children are more than welcome to read anything they would like to at home be it magazines or recipes. 



Homework is a short task each week that reinforces basic skills. Homework is sent home on a Friday and is to be completed before the following Tuesday.


If you have any worries or concerns, or would simply like a chat about any area outlined above, please do not hesitate to catch any of the year 2 team at the end of the day or alternatively make an appointment with the office.


Thank you for your continued support


Miss Horne, Miss Cully and Miss Preston
