Whilst you are away from school, it is important to continue with your learning. You will have received a pack of work to complete over the next two weeks.
Alongside this, I have set daily tasks on our Visual Platform (DB Primary). Please ensure you are logging on every day to complete these.

Welcome to the year 2 homepage.
Class teacher: Miss Borthwick Teaching Assistants: Mrs Pratt and Miss Fleming
We are really enjoying our time in Year 2 and are all working super hard!
Our English topic this half term has focused on the story of Queen Victoria's Bathing Machine. We have been writing a diary entry and have worked hard to do some fantastic writing!
In Science we have been looking at Scientists and Inventors. We have learned about Elizabeth Anderson, Louis Pasteur and Charles Macintosh and about how their inventions have changed our world!
In Maths we have been looking about measures. We have learned about telling the time to 5 minutes and have looked at counting, exchanging and adding money!
Below are a list of common exception words that the children will be expected to be able to read and spell by the end of the year. Please can you find time to practice these in a fun and relaxed way.
In year 2 we have 2 PE days each week. These are on Monday and Thursday afternoons. Full PE kit should be worn to these sessions which includes:
- White or grey t-shirt
- Red shorts
- Black pumps
No jewellery is permitted at any time in school, especially earrings.
Spellings and homework will be given out each Friday and these spellings will be tested the following Friday. Homework is due in the following Friday.
Reading books will be changed and chosen by the children as soon as possible after I have seen that parents have signed the books.
Please remember to keep using Times Tables Rockstars and the VLE.
Below are some maths fluency facts for Year 2. All children should feel confident in these by the end of Year 2. It would be great if you could practice these with your child at home!
