Welcome to Year 2!

Who's Who?

A Typical Year 2 Timetable


The following homework will be given out each week to children in Year 2:


Spellings are given out on a Friday to be learnt by the following Friday.

My Maths tasks are set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday.

Reading should be done at least three times a week at home. This year we are beginning to use Reading Records again, so please endeavour to write in them when you have read with your child. 


Optional extra:

Numbots and Times Table Rock Stars can be accessed anytime. We don't set weekly tasks on it, but it can be a useful tool for extra number practice at home. 


Work which is set on Google Classrooms, only needs to be completed and submitted if your child is isolating at home. Note: We sometimes set tasks on Google Classroom for the children to complete in their computing lesson. This does not have to be done at home.

March 2022 - Science Week


The theme for this year's Science Week was growth. We enjoyed exploring the playgrounds, looking for signs of growth. As part our plants science topic, we are conducting our own growth experiments. We have planted beans and left them in different conditons. We are eagerly awaiting to see signs of growth!


We were very lucky to have a visit from Mrs Greenwood, who amazed us with her Elephant's Toothpaste experiment! We loved it! Feeling inspired by this, we even had a go at creating some chemical reaction of our own! We watched what happened when you put mints into a full bottle of coke and also made our own "volcanoes in a cup"! 


What a busy week! We've had so much fun - have a look at our photos below!
