Year 2

Welcome to class 2’s page:


Our project this term is ‘How can Authors Inspire us to be Imaginative Writers?’ We have lots of fun and exciting lessons and activities planned and we cannot wait to delve into this project. We will be exploring animals and their habitats in science. We will make our own algorithms to programme a beebot in computing and DT. In Geography we will be studying where the cocoa bean comes from and its journey to make chocolate. In Art we will be studying the famous artist Orla Keily.


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 (summer term1), PE will be on a Friday.

After May half term (summer 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.
