Our English topic this half term has focused on the story of the Lonely Beast. We are writing a story about the beasts journey. We were all very excited when we received a letter from him asking if he can visit our school. We even did some role play as the beast!

We are learning about Animals including humans in Science and are enjoying doing lots of group work and having interesting discussions!

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!
