Welcome to Year Two


Our PE days will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please come to school wearing your PE clothes, with long hair tied up and earrings removed.


Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars homework will be set weekly. On Spelling Shed please aim to reach the Royal Bee level each week. On Numbots/TT Rockstars, please aim for 5 minutes each night. On My Maths, children should aim for 100% but if they get less than 75% try have another go. These platforms are most effective when completed in short bursts throughout the week. Log ins for these will be sent home shortly.

Your child will be sent home with a reading book and a reading record. Please ensure your child is reading their home reading book for at least 10 minutes each night and that you comment within their reading records. Books will be changed once a week.

Additionally, the children will receive 10 spellings each week for them to practise at home. These again can be practised in small bursts.

There will also be some extra tasks that will be set on Teams which can be completed throughout the half term. There will be a choice of 6, however, the children will only need to complete 4 of these throughout the half term. You may want to send a photo or video of your work to show you have completed the task

The Year 2 Team are available to speak to you at the door for minor queries, but should a longer appointment be required, please contact the office.

Autumn 1

A huge welcome to Year 2!

We hope you had a fantastic Summer and we are so excited to have you back in school. We have a super half-term lined up with lots of new and interesting learning.

We will begin our History learning about The Great Fire of London which will allow us to recap our knowledge of London and see what facts we can recall from Year 1. We will see what London was like at the time of the fire compared to now and will also explore how the fire started and how the fire spread through the city. We will also be scientists this half-term and explore various materials and their properties. This will include some experiments along the way! In English, we will be exploring different traditional tales and will even be looking at some traditional tales with a twist. I wonder what traditional tales you know of already and if you have a favourite? In Maths, we will start the term by developing our understanding of place value and number knowledge.

Our PE days are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please ensure you come to school in your PE kit, with long hair tied back and earrings removed.

As in Year 1, homework will be set weekly on Spelling Shed and MyMaths and we now ask that children also access TTRockstars. The children will be shown how to do so in class. In addition, tasks will be set on Teams, linked to the learning for the half-term. Please aim to complete at least 4 of these throughout the half-term. You can send photos, videos or documents attached to each assignment and we share any tasks completed as a class.

We are so excited to be teaching you again this year and cannot wait to get started!
