Welcome to Year 2!
We are looking forward to all the fantastic learning that we will be doing in Year 2 this year. We aim to make the learning in Year 2: creative, interactive and as practical as we can!
Some class information is as follows:
Our P.E day is Tuesday so please do remember to send your child in their P.E kit on this day.
We will send out weekly homework which will consist of: a Monster Phonics booklet with your child's weekly spelling to practise, a reading book with their reading log book for you to record your comments, and a maths worksheet for them to complete.
Please note: You MUST return your children's Spelling log books and reading logs EVERY WEEK! Without these Logs we cannot issue your child's new books and spelling for the following week! Please do support your child to think of and write out sentences of at least 5 of their spelling words. Support them to look up the meanings of any of their spelling words that they do not know the meaning of.
Homework will be given to your child on Friday's and we expect it back in school by Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their book bags in by Thursday ready to take their homework home on Friday.
Spelling tests for year 2 will be on a Friday.
Your child will get termly homework, which will be a homework grid where your child will get a choice of what homework they would like to complete and present.What are we learning this term?
This term we will be learning about our wonderful world, looking at different countries, their values , their traditional food and languages. We will also look at the topics from pupil voices on what they would like to learn.
In preparation for our next terms topic Supermarket, we would like you to take your children on a visit to your local library. Find any books and read them together. You could find either storybooks or some information books. Bring in your favourite book from the library and show it to the class.
Our Topic for this term is 'The Great Fire of London'
Below are the Topic Page and the Homework choices for Year 2 this Half Term.
The grid is a table of homework activities relating to our topic. You must choose at least THREE but if you wish to do more, then that’s brilliant! You have until 5th of October to finish your homework. Have fun choosing and we look forward to seeing your finished work!

We have started learning Phonics through a new scheme called Monster Phonics. Please click on the logo below for more information.
Below is a video explaining how Monster phonics accelerates learning and how it works:
In year 2 we have 3 spelling groups. Each week your child's spelling words will be in their spelling logs with the date of their next spelling test. Children's spelling words consist of some words from their sound of the week and some high frequency words. Children will receive their spelling logs on Friday's and will have their spelling test the next Friday. Every week you will receive a slip with your child's spelling result and the words they need to practise.
In maths we follow the Abacus ActiveLearn scheme. To get more information about the scheme please click here. Every week children will have a maths sheet which links to their maths lessons from that week.
This term (Autumn 2) we will be covering:
Mental Maths, addition and subtraction
Measurement and Directions
Multiplication and Division
