Year 2

Welcome to the year 2 homepage.

We have had a fantastic start to the year! During the first term the children produced some amazing work around traditional tales and wolves.

Our English topic this half term has focussed on pirates. We will be reading 'Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates' as well as 'A New Home for a Pirate.' Using these texts we will write a set of instructions and information texts. 

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 Tuesday and Thursday mornings. 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 will be given out each Wednesday and these spellings will be tested the following Wednesday.

Reading books will be changed and chosen by the children as soon as possible after i have seen that parents have signed the books.

Maths homework will be sent each Friday and be based on the weeks learning. This would be a good opportunity to let your child teach you the strategies that we have been learning to improve confidence

Please remember to keep using Times Tables Rockstars and the VLE.
