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.

A huge well done to all those who been accessing home learning on J2E! Miss Geary will be sending postcards to children who have impressed their teachers with their amazing home learning!

 Your teachers have been marking your work and awarding house points. Well done to those of you accessing zoom daily to find out your tasks for the day.


Well done to all those working at home, keep up the hard work.

We miss you! If you require any support with the home learning, please e-mail



If your child is completing their work from a printed work pack, please return the work pack to school so a teacher can mark your child's work.


You will have seen that all children will be returning to school on 8th March 2021. Click on the 'Reopening' tab in the top right for more information on the plan for reopening. We are looking forward to having you all back!



In English, we have been writing our own instructions about how to make pancakes. We used time conjunctions, imperative verbs and adverbs to improve our writing.



In Maths, we have been looking at 3D shapes and identifying the faces, vertices and edges. 



We begin a new history topic this half term. We are thinking about explorers and how they achieved. We looked at 6 different history makers and ordered them according to when they lived. 



In Science, we have been learning about the parts of a plant and thinking about the function of each part of the plant. We then went outside and studied the parts of a daffodil.
