English & Topic

This week we will be using all of the research that we have completed to create individual books.  The children will use illustrations to enhance their fantastic writing.


We will be focusing on problem solving and reasoning; encouraging then children to explain how they got to their answer. 

This week will be the last week that the children will be completing their special maths and reading booklets. Hooray!  Please make sure your child is in school on time, that they have had a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast. This really helps them to concentrate to the best of their ability. Please let us know, as a matter of urgency, if your child is due to be absent this week.

We will have a celebration on Thursday in honour of all of their hard work.  No party clothes or snacks needed.

Buzz time will start again after half term.

Thank you,

The Year 2 Team ~ Mrs Davies, Mrs Bellman, Mrs Basher, Mrs Vincent

We have also included the Year 1 and 2 common exception words, a grammar glossary and the teacher assessment framework for Year 2 which outlines the end of year expectations.

We have two classes called Amber and Sunset. The teachers are Mrs Bellman, Mrs Davies, Mrs Basher and Mrs Vincent.  Also working in the classes as Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Robbins and Mrs Atkins.

Click below for the link to our curriculum map.  We will be teaching six main topics this year.  Each will start with a ‘Big Bang’ to excite the children for the learning to come and will end with a celebration of their achievements.  This may be sharing work with another year group, a celebration class assembly or a special event.


We aim to change your child’s reading book three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  We rely on the kindness of our parent volunteers to do this job for us, so there may be occasions when the books are not changed. If this happens here are some ideas of what you could do at home instead:

  • re-read the book that they have been given
  • write a book review about the text
  • write about one of the characters (if it is a story) encouraging them to use adjectives
  • respond in writing to comprehension questions that you have asked eg Why do you think Goldilocks broke into the Three Bears house?
  • Read a book from your home library or on the computer

Each class will have two PE sessions a week which will be on Thursdays and Fridays. One of these sessions will be outside so your child will need trainers and warm clothing such as a track suit.

Homework will be given on a Friday each week and returned the following Friday, unless there is a change to the timetable.  Your child will receive a spelling sheet where they will explore a given spelling pattern.  We do not test the children on these spellings but would like them to write sentences in their homework book.  To help the children practise their maths skills they will take part in the ‘Buzz Time’ challenge every Friday.  They will be challenged on number bonds and timestables.

Here are some pictures of Year 2 recreating the Great Fire of London.
