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 19th May 2022



Wow! What an amazing week we have had! All of the children have made me so proud. They have made so much progress since I started teaching them in year one. Every single one of the children tried their best and performed amazingly! We have really enjoyed having the breakfast each morning and it has turned out to be a really fun week.



Phonics Screening


During the Phonics Screening Check, children are asked to read (decode) 40 words. Most of these words are real words but some are pseudo-words. Please use the resources below to help your child practice reading, in advance of the phonics screening. 


While these words may not necessarily be used in the Phonics Screening Check, helping your child to decode words with a range of digraphs and trigraphs will support your child's reading abilities.


If you have any queries, please speak with your child's class teacher. (Please note - the Phonics Screening Check is only being conducted with the Year 2 children who did not pass last time).


HH – My favourite test was the arithmetic test because I love fractions, addition, subtraction, division and multiplication!

KD – I’ve enjoyed doing the spelling test because I liked the questions.

JM – I liked the reasoning paper in maths because we got to use a mirror.

CRH – I liked the spelling test in SATs because it was a bit easy for me and you get to practise some words to use in your English lesson.

DAT – I’ve liked the maths papers because it’s so fun!

SS – I liked the reasoning paper because you get to do everything you’ve learnt about!

AM – I liked the SPaG paper because it has questions that I like and I love using punctuation marks at the end.
