In the links above you will find out all about the exciting learning that is yet to come this half term! Please have a browse.


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 fortnightly update of all the exciting things that happen within 2S! Enjoy!


Reading Books

2S will have their reading books changed once they have been read. Please remember to sign your child’s reading record book so that they can collect stickers for their reading reward chart and earn their certificates.

On Wednesday we visit the library and 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 be given homework every week. It will be linked to Maths and English, and on some occasions will be linked to our learning from our Topic lessons. It will be given out each Friday, to be returned by Wednesday. For every piece of homework that is completed, your child will receive a house point. Please help your child with their homework.


P.E Days

Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school for the whole half term.  The days we have P.E. can change on a weekly basis.  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.



2S Class Blog



We have had a very busy week!  Unfortunately today we have not been able to have Family Fun Day, due to the weather.  We are looking forward to it happening on the 14th of July.  Tomorrow we have our Olympic House Day with lots of activities happening.


In English this week we have been working with a poem called 'Sea Seasons' and identifying features of poetry.  

"The poem has adjectives and verbs to describe the seasons of the sea." 

"The adjectives describe the sea.  I liked the part where the sea, "Slithers across shingle, splintering and sparkling under the bright summer sun." (A.G.)

"The poem uses a lot of alliteration." (E.K & RMH)

"It does not have any rhyming words." (K.C.)


In Maths we have been revisiting multiplication and division as well as practising our problem solving skills.  We have also been using mapping skills in Geography and looked at famous explorers in History.  This work has linked to our topic of 'Land Ahoy'.


Next week we are looking forward to our visit to Coalhouse Fort for our Bug Hunters workshop and to explore some of the Geography and History of the area. 

We are hoping the weather improves and is sunny!
