Year 2

Welcome to class 2’s page:


Our project this term is ‘Why is the Great Fire of London important?’ We have lots of fun and exciting lessons and activities planned and we cannot wait to delve into this project. We will be exploring plants in science. We will design and make some cookies as part of our DT. In Geography we will be studying the capital city of England and looking at how far the fire spread. In History we will be looking at the significant individual Samuel Pepys and how we know about these events.


We would like you to hear your child read between 3 and 5 times a week and then record when you have heard them read in their reading diaries, the more times the children read the more stamps they will receive and rewards they will achieve.

Weekly homework:

Your child will bring their homework home on a Friday and it will need to be returned to school by the following Friday and put in the homework box in the classroom. The children will have spellings, maths and reading, so they need to practice these throughout the week. Your child can also practice their times tables online using Times Table Rock Stars (TTRS) at

Project homework:

As always, we love to share and celebrate our pupil’s amazing project homework in our exhibition corner. Please remember that your child must complete 3 project homework tasks over the term in addition to their weekly homework.

Spelling tests will be on a Friday.

Physical Education (P.E):

This half term (spring term 1), PE will be swimming and we go on a Friday.

Please make sure your child has their bathers or swim shorts and a towel in a bag they can carry themselves. Long hai must be tied back and earrings taken out. If your child wants to wear goggles, they must fill in the goggle permission slip and return it to school.

After February half term (spring term 2) PE will be on a Wednesday.

Please make sure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit. They will stay in their kit all day.

PE kit is:

  • a plain white t-shirt
  • blue or black shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms
  • school cardigan or jumper
  • trainers

Children need to take their earrings out or cover them over before they come to school and long hair must be tied up.

If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please come and see us.

Thank you

Miss Haywood, Mrs Dunn and Miss Benton.
