  • Miss Tailford’s

    Star of the Week

    Well done to Tiffany

    For working hard and trying your best all week!

    We are very proud of you!


  • This half term we are learning about…


  • Homework

    Homework is sent home every Friday. Children are encouraged to complete this independently.

    English and Maths homework will be focussed on the weekly work that they have done in class.

    Homework is expected to be completed by a Thursday.


  • 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.

  • 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.



  • 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! 

    As well as Reading every night at home, children can use Bug Club for extra reading too!


  • Our Class Gallery

    Here is our gallery showing some of the exciting things we have been doing.

    We hope you enjoy looking at all our learning!


  • Examples of Work

    Here are some examples of all the interesting and exciting work we have been creating in Year 2.

    We are very proud of everything we do!

  • Newcastle Castle trip

    The children had a great day exploring Newcastle castle to end our ‘Tunnels, Turrets and Towers ‘ topic. They had a guided tour of the castle taking in the dungeon, spiral staircases and a visit to the top of the highest tower. They also took part in a knights training workshop. Here the children got to try on armour, chain mail and helmets. They also found out about different weapons and battles. 

    Here are some pictures of all the fun we had, even though it was a bit cold!

  • 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 Skipping Festival

    Year 2 really enjoyed taking part in a town wide skipping festival this February. Lots of hard work and determination went into learning the new skills and practicing! The children had a great time and we are very proud of how well they represented the school. 

    A big WELL DONE to all our skipping stars! 

  • 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!
