Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


Hello Year 2 children, parents and guardians.

We are Mrs Weaving and Miss Needham and we will be working in Year 2 until the end of this academic year. 


We have already had a great first week! The children have all been superstars and have adapted to the new school term really quickly.


We are going to have a great few weeks, with lots of learning and lots of fun!


Here's to a great half term!

We will be reading a lot of different books at the end of the day to allow the children to enjoy reading as much as possible. Below are a few examples, but we have started to share our first chapter book which is The Diary of a Killer Cat by Anne Fine! smiley

Homework will be set on a Friday and can be returned the following Friday, please.

Spelling tests will happen on a Friday morning and new spelling lists will be issued on a Friday evening.

Spelling shed work and SUMDOG work will be set for a Friday and will be live for a week, to give you and your children time to complete the tasks/challenges set.

Topic homework will be given out at the beginning of the half term and collected in during the last week. You can choose to complete this work at your own pace as long as all pieces of work are completed.yes

Reading Books   

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal. 

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.

TOPIC HOMEWORK for Half Term 1:


We have had some marvellous homework handed in so far. Well done to those children that have completed the topic challenge.


Just a reminder: Children are to design a poster for a new chocolate bar of their choice. They can then make this chocolate bar in 3d form using any materials that you already have at home. 


This fits in with out current History topic of The Cadbury Brothers.


Hand in date is Wednesday 19th October 2022. (Just before the half term break).smiley

PE days for Year 2

PE will be on a Tuesday and a Friday . Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on those days

PE Kit = black pumps, white T-shirt or school T-shirt and black shorts. 


Remember earrings cannot be worn for PE and must be taped if unable to remove BEFORE school


Look what we have been up to so far this year...
