Year 2

Welcome To Our Year 2 Class Page

Thank you for visiting our Y2 Class Page, we hope you enjoy looking through our learning journey and finding out all about us and the exciting work we do. Y2 are enthusiastic, eager to learn and are supportive to one another. We celebrate our differences and together we achieve our best.


Y2 are taught by Mrs.Strode and supported by Ms. Khader.


P.E. is on a Thursday and Friday. Children need to have in school their P.E. kit which consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts or leggings and black P.E. pumps, all clearly named.


Homework is sent home on a Friday to be returned on Tuesday. It is always linked to the work the children have been doing during the week so parents can support their child at home.


Reading books need to be brought into school everyday and home readers are changed on a Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Reading daily at home is highly recommended, it is an opportunity for children to secure their word recognition and understanding of the books they read. Please ensure diaries are signed to indicate a book has been read at home.


In addition to weekly homework, children in Y2 need to have a good grasp of the times table x2, x5 and x10. Please support your child in learning these so they have a quick mental recall of these facts.

There are some excellent websites which we use in school to support learning. Your child will have their password stuck into their reading diary.


Tuesday 4th June

Today, the children were an investigation in Maths to see which packet of chocolate had the most number of chocolates in it. The children had to first count the chocolates in each bag and record the information in a tally chart, they then presented this information in a bar graph. Hmmm...I wonder what happened to the chocolate after that???wink

In the afternoon, children were introduced to the artwork of Piet Mondrian and had a go at recreating some of his abstract work using the computer.

Monday 3rd June

Welcome Back!!!

Today, Y2 have started reading their new book in English - James and the Giant Peach.

After reading a few of the chapters we had a go at acting out some scenes with Aunt Sponge, Aunt Spiker and James. The children had lots of fun being bossy!






Maths - Children have different worksheets consolidating simple multiplication and division facts.


English - Today your child has brought home a reading comprehension to complete. Please ensure your child writes the answers in their English homework book.


Spellings for each group are below. Please support your child in learning their spellings for a spell check next Thursday.


This week, Y2 are looking at measuring using different units. If you go shopping this week, it will be an excellent opportunity to point out the weight of different foods and how much liquid bottles hold.
