  • This half term we are learning about…

  • Homework

    In Year 2 the expectation for homework is that children are to read their reading books every night. As well as this we would like your children to also practice their spellings on a daily basis. 

    We would also like your children to practice their times tables as this is a very important part of Year 2. There is a link to our Times Tables Rockstar site on this page and the login has been sent home with your child.

    Please speak to Miss Tailford if you have any questions about this. 


  • Spelling

    Spellings will be sent home weekly and these will be the common exception words for Year 2 or words with a common spelling pattern.

      Please encourage your children to practise these at home regularly.

  • Reading

    Please try and read every night at home with your children and sign their reading records to ensure they receive their reading awards.

    Reading books will be changed on a weekly basis.

      Please ensure your children have their reading books in school everyday.


  • P.E.

    We have P.E on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school.

    A full P.E kit should include a white T-shirt, black shorts and either black P.E shoes or trainers.

    Trainers are required during the summer term for outdoor P.E.



  • Helping your child at home

    Here are a few extra things you could help your child with at home…

    As well as their weekly spellings, these are the words your children need to learn to spell by the end of Year 2. 


    Children also need to know their times tables, don’t forget to go on Rockstar times tables for extra practice!

    We are very proud of everything we do!

  • Year 2 Buddies 

    Here are the year 2 bundies. They are very excited to help out on the KS1 yard at lunchtime and playtime. The buddy of the week gets to keep the buddy bear in their classroom for a week as a reward for their hard work!


  • Year 2 PE with Mr Palmer

    We are really enjoying working with Mr Palmer to develop our PE skills this year. We have been focusing on traveling and multi skills. We are developing lots of new techniques and love working as part of a team! Lots of determination is being shown and there is a real passion for PE!

  • Miss Tailford’s Core Value Stars!

    Every week Miss Tailford is looking for someone who is trying hard to show one of our core values in class.

    These are the children she has spotted being core value superstars this week!
