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 24th March 2021



In English, we wrote to the Tortoise Protection Group. We asked all about how they look after and rehome tortoises. We also told the group all about our knowledge of tortoises. We have been learning all about tortoises in our English lessons.



In Maths, we have been finding thirds. We have also been learning about unit fractions. We know a unit fraction always has a numerator of 1. 



In History, we found out all about Sunita Williams. We wrote diary entries as Sunita. We watched videos and read diary entries of Sunita so we knew what her experience in space was like. She was the first woman to spend 29 hours outside of the International Space Station completing space walks.


Census Week 

This week, adults have been completing the 2021 census. We have completed our own census. We also learned all about Sarah Forbes Bonetta and how she shaped equality in England We created a comic strip of her life.
