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.



Year 2 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

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.

We have had a very busy, fun and productive week in 2W.


FK – ‘This week in English we have been planning and writing wanted posters for an escaped lion! We have focused on the text – How to hide a lion.’

ZG – ‘In Maths we have been ordering numbers to 100. We have been looking at what numbers are greater than and less than.’

SE – ‘In Art we have been looking at different fruits and sketching the outline using different media.’

AG – ‘History this week was all about Guy Fawkes and King James. We learnt all about the gunpowder plot!’

MB – ‘Science has been all about materials. We were discussing different types of materials and what things in the classroom are made of.’
