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.

If your child is self- isolating, please find a timetable of work below.

2H Class Blog 3rd December


In Maths this week, we have been using grouping and arrays to add and multiply. 

We know that 3 x 2 is the same as 2 x 3.

An array is in columns and rows.


In English, we have been writing a newspaper report about a whale being found washed up on a beach after a storm. 

We need to think about the 5W's in a newspaper report. 

It needs to be factual. 


In Geography, we have been learning about the differences between homes in the UK and in Kampong Ayer. One difference is that homes in Kampong Ayer do not have separate rooms like we do in the UK. 



Year 2 will be taking part in a Winter writing competition. Please find below a poster with the details of the competition. I have also included some handy links to webpages that provide story boards. Your child can use a story board, j2e or pen and paper to write their story. We ask that you upload your story to your J2E account and let your teacher know. 

Good luck!
