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, 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.

Tuesday 31st March 2020 - Weekly update


This is a weekly reminder for Year 2 regarding what is available to them so they are able to continue with their learning at home during this time.


All children in Year 2 were given their log in details for J2e and Purple Mash. These are both valuable learning resources which link to areas of the curriculum. They are also websites which we would use as part of the teaching curriculum.  Well done to those that used these websites last week. Completing these tasks will keep your curriculum knowledge and skills up-to-date in preparation for Year 3.  


We would suggest that children access various facilities within these websites such as art, coding, writing and sorting. 


If you have any issues logging in to the website - please call our office and one of the Year 2 teachers will be able to update you with the details.


There are also other websites that can be used to assist with your child's learning.  These are listed under the useful websites tab on the school's website.  Again if you have any problems accessing any sites or any further questions regarding supporting your child's learning - please let the Year 2 teachers know via the office and we will call you back.
