Important information

Homework will be given on a Monday and is due back on a Friday. The homework will consist of spellings, which your child will be tested on on Fridays; and either a piece of Maths, English or Topic related work.

Year 2 children use Accelerated Reader, which means they will complete a quiz on the book they have read. It is important your child reads daily with an adult and that their reading record is signed. Each child will be allocated a reading day, where they will read with an adult and their peers.

Children that did not pass the Phonics screening in Year 1 will be retaking their Phonics screening at the end of the year.


Weekly updates


This week the children have been learning all about less than and more than signs. Our topic continues to be as messy as possible as we made clay story boards for George’s Marvellous Medicine. In English, we have been busy learning to use expanded noun phrases to describe our own potions.
A reminder that Year 2 Parent Talks are being held on Wednesday 19th September from 6pm – 7pm. We look forward to seeing you then!


Welcome to Year 2! The children have been busy settling in to their new year groups and getting to know all the adults in our year. We have had some great fun on our ‘Messy morning’ and have created lots of work to show off!
