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 – 16th September 2021


In English, we have been writing a diary entry. In set 3, we wrote a diary pretending to be Iris finding the lion in the garden. We then wrote a diary pretending to be the lion. We used time conjunctions to explain the day when Iris cared for the lion. In set 2 and 1, we wrote a diary entry as though we had found an elephant outside of our window. We have been making sure we read our writing back and add capital letters and full stops.



In maths, we have been identifying tens and ones. We have been putting numbers into part-whole models. We have also been adding by partitioning. For example 53 = 50 + 3 because there are 5 tens and 3 ones in 53.



We have had lots of fun cracking codes in History this week. Lots of us even took some codes home to try and create our own codes. We know that in World War I, people used to speak in code so they could pass on secrets to their allies without the enemies knowing.



What a fun science lesson we had this week! We went outdoors to identify materials around our school. We spoke about why materials were used. For example, plastic was used for the nursery toys because they are weatherproof and can be wiped down if they get dirty.



We spoke about our rights and responsibilities in class. We have the right to learn in class, to achieve this we need to be responsible and listen.



We created line patterns in art this week. We used our sketchbook to practise shading. To achieve a darker shade, we push harder on our pencil
