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, usually on a Thursday.  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.



Your child will receive English and Maths homework every Friday, and it is due back in school on Wednesdays. Children will receive a house point for every piece of homework that they return to school. Please encourage your child to complete their homework, and support them if necessary. If necessary children can complete their homework or practise their spellings in homework club on Wednesday and Thursday at play time. They will be given words to learn to spell on a Friday, and will be tested in school on the following Friday. If your child does not bring their homework home, please see their teacher as soon as possible as the books are used for a lesson every Friday.


P.E Days

We will have P.E weekly, sometimes on Tuesday, and sometimes on a Friday morning, 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 16th January 2020


This week in English we have been rewriting our own version of the Highway Rat. 

We used repetition in the style of Julia Donaldson. 

We also used speech and lots of ambitious vocabulary. 


In Maths we have been looking at finding equal parts.

A half is an equal part. 

A quarter means there are 4 equal parts. 


In Science we have been sorting items into 'alive', 'never alive' and 'not alive now'.

It has been fun to sort real objects. 


In History, we have been thinking about how pigeons were important for carrying messages. 


We also wrote to Boris Johnson to ask him to donate money to Australia to help them tackle the bushfires.
