Welcome Message

Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading and homework.


At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- a weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within Year 2! Enjoy!


Reading Books

Year 2 will have the opportunity to change their own reading books daily. We will visit the library weekly.  Children will bring home their choice of a library book. Please ensure book bags are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week.



Homework is set every Friday via J2E. This will direct you to access Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds where your children will complete an English and Maths task. Please support your child in completing these tasks. Their logins for J2E, Reading Eggs and Maths Seeds can be found inside their reading journals. If you encounter any problems, please speak to your class teacher. 


P.E Days

Year 2 have P.E weekly, but this is subject to change, so please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. For health and safety reasons hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed for P.E. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

Class Blog – Thursday 15th 2021

What an exciting, busy week we have had!


In English this week we have been retelling the story of Greta and the Giants. We have planned and rewrote the end of the story and changed the character to our own. We have also been focusing on getting year 3 ready, practicing our sentence formation and comprehension skills.


In maths this week we have been practicing adding and subtracting 2digit numbers using the column method. We have also been recapping our number bonds to 100.

Sports day!

On Tuesday afternoon we took part in sports day! We had so much fun! All of the children were brilliant at giving every course a go. We took part in a sprint, long jump and throw. We then had some fun races!

Our favourite parts of Year 2

My favourite part has been art because I like creating stuff – EA

My favourite part has been handwriting because I like joined up handwriting – NG

My favourite part has been computing – VLF

My favourite part has been maths - KM


I can’t believe we are nearly at the end of Year 2! Although we have not had a ‘normal’ school year, all of the children in 2H have coped incredibly well with the changes and despite the bumps in the road we have had an amazing year together!


Myself, Miss Holman and Mrs Bagum want to wish all of year 2 the best of luck starting their journey into KS2. We will miss you. See you next year!
