Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome to our Year 2 class page. Our Year 2 class teachers are Mrs Malcolm and Miss Gravell, Mrs Jordan is our teaching assistant. In Year 2 we work hard to always try our best, learn new things everyday and become super independent learners. We will update this page with some of our exciting learning that we would love to share with you at home - so make sure you keep checking for updates!

Autumn Term 2 2017

Wow, what a fantastic first half term we have had in Year 2! smiley The children have all settled in brilliantly and are working hard with all of their new Year 2 challenges. Thank you to all the parents who attended Parent's Evening - it was great to meet you all and share your children's work with you. If you were unable to attend and would like to arrange a time to meet, please contact the office and Mrs Ainscough or Mrs Hollinshead will be able to organise this.

We have a busy time ahead this half term with lots of exciting learning before Christmas. Please check the newsletter for important dates.

The children have really enjoyed earning their dojo points and being able to celebrate this with you at home. Thank you to all the parents who have signed up to our class on Class Dojo. If you are yet to sign up and would like to, or need some assistance in doing so, please let me know. I will post any key class information and dates on there along with sharing some of the work we have been doing.

Please find below our Curriculum Map for this half term.

Many thanks, Mrs Malcolm

Autumn Term 2 2017 Curriculum Map - Fighting Fit

Welcome to Year 2 2017 - 2018!

We would like to say a warm welcome to all our new Year 2 children and parents. Your children are now in their third year of primary school and we are very excited to be working with them as they learn lots of new things during this next year. We have listed some key information for Year 2 below which we hope will be useful to you.


PE Kits:

All children in Year 2 need to have full indoor and outdoor PE kits in school at all times. A list of the items needed can be found in the uniform list in the parents section of this website. PE lessons will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays but kits may be needed at other times during the week. Please ensure all items of PE kit are clearly labelled to avoid items going missing.



Homework will be sent home every Thursday to be returned by the following Tuesday. Our homework will consist of a Maths and an English task which will be appropriate for the children's current stage in their learning. Homework tasks are an opportunity for your child to practise new skills and therefore we encourage the children to try and complete these independently.


Reading Books:

All children have been sent home with a reading book and a reading diary. Books will be changed twice a week once your child has completed the book - more information has been included in the front of the reading diary.


Water Bottles:

We encourage the children to bring in water bottles filled with fresh water each day (no juice please). Children will be allowed to drink regularly throughout the day to avoid dehydration and support concentration. Water bottles can be purchased from the school office for £1.50, or you can provide one from home - please ensure your child's name is clearly written on their water bottle.



Snack remains at 20p for a slice or toast or a bag of fruit. We have a class box for snack money and purses to keep it safe during the day.



If you would like your child to have a carton of milk each day, you will need to register with 'Cool Milk'. The price is around £5 per term - for more information, please contact the office.


 We will regularly update this webpage with details and information of all the exciting work we will be getting up to over the year. However, if you have any questions or would like to talk to us please catch us after school or contact the school office.
