Notice Board
24th September


This week we will continue to work on our rainforest adventure story. The children will be writing noun phrases and will use this learning to innovate the story by adding their own description of the animals.


We will be looking at addition this week. The children will be learning to add using the empty number line method. Buzz Time will continue to take place every Friday morning. Please help your child to learn their number facts each week.


Mrs Spiller’s group will be looking at the ways the oo sound can be spelled and the homophones to, two and too.

Mrs Bellman’s and Mrs Atkins’ group will be practising the alternative spellings for the ai, ee, c and ch sounds. 

Topic – We Are Explorers

The children will continue to learn about the plants and animals that inhabit the rainforest. They will add plants and animals that they have drawn to our class rainforest display.

Please ensure your child hands their red homework book in every Thursday.    

We have had some parent volunteers to help us change the reading books but we still need more. Please see your child’s teachers if you think that you could give any time to help with this, or if you would like to help by reading with children.

Thank you,

The Year 2 Team ~ Mrs Bellman, Mrs Spiller, Mrs Atkins, Mrs Robbins

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 and Mrs Spiller.  Also working in the classes as Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Atkins and Mrs Robbins.

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 e.g. 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 Wednesdays 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 should be returned the following Thursday, 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 times tables.

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