Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 page. The staff in Year 2 are Mrs Jones and Mrs Hawkes (2J) and Miss Everett and Mrs Cordiner (2E) and Mrs Busby on Wednesdays and Thursdays.


In Maths we are encouraging the children to become confident and fluent using knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division within 100. You can support your children at home by using Mathletics daily and by playing a range of maths games to develop their mental recall. Please follow the links for Mathletics and a range of maths games.

In English we use Talk for Writing to develop the children's language and understanding of different text types. This term we will be exploring narratives, fact files and poetry linked to our topic on Explorers. Please practise spellings daily as children need to spelling them correctly within all their written work, not just in their spelling test. It is a school expectation that your child reads for 5-10 minutes each night. Please continue to support your child with this aspect of their learning.


This term our topic is 'We are Explorers'. The children will find out all about explorers such as Christopher Columbus, Captain Robert Falcon Scott and Neil Armstrong. We will develop art techniques such as colour mixing and sketching to create a self portrait. At the end of the topic, the children will be able to name the five continents and seven oceans of the world as well as all the countries in the United Kingdom.


2E - Monday
2J - Tuesday

Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school at all times.
