Year 2

Welcome Back Year 2!


Class 2’s project for the autumn term is ‘How has Nottingham been influenced by other cultures?’

We will begin with our amazing hook days by travelling all around the world! Class 2 will learn about the wealth of countries that make our community special. Children will be invited to talk about where their family comes from and locate on a world map. Our classroom will transform into a World Food Market, where we will enjoy sampling different cuisines, whilst listening to traditional music. We will celebrate our diversity, using use art techniques to create self-portrait paintings and flags for our classroom display.

Throughout the project, we will learn about why people leave their homes and significant people who have had an impact upon society and much more!

Our class novels include the fantastic, ‘The Proudest Blue’, Coming to England’, ‘The Day the War Came’ and ‘The Boy at the Back of The Class’.

We will also read an exciting range of non-fiction texts to develop our knowledge of the world and animals including humans and uses of every day materials.

We will continue to experience our ‘51 things to do at Southwold’ and will be sharing our adventures on Class Dojo.

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.

Please ask if your child needs any help or resources.


‘The more you read, the more you learn!’

Please aim to listen to your child read 5 times a week and record every time you read with them in their reading diaries so we can keep a record. Children get a stamp on their reading bookmark every time they read at home.  When a bookmark is completed, your child will receive a prize then moves to the next colour of bookmark. Help them to achieve the reading colours of the rainbow this year academic year!

Spellings and Maths Homework

Your child will be given a spelling, maths madness and a times table test every Thursday morning, so they need to be practising these throughout the week. Your child can also practise their times tables online using Times Table Rockstars at

Children receive house and Dojo’s points either for effort, making progress or full marks in spellings and passing their times table and maths madness test.

Your child is given homework to complete every Friday and this will need to be returned to school the following Thursday if not before.


PE lessons will take place on:

  • Wednesday Summer 1
  • Monday Summer 2

Please make sure that your child comes to school dressed in the correct PE kit on PE days only.

If you need to know anything else or need to speak with a member of staff, please do not hesitate to come and see us.
