Welcome to Year 2!


Our class teacher is Mrs Seedhouse, Miss Creaser teaches our class every Thursday.


Our PE days are Monday and Friday.  Please ensure your child has their full indoor and outdoor kit on these days, thank you.


Guided reading takes place each Monday and new books issued, however, letters can be handed out any day so please bring your book bag to school every day.

Bug Club is back! Click here to log on (new log in details have been issued.  Please let us know if you have a problem logging on or are unable to access the internet at home).


Homework is set on Friday and should be handed in on the following Wednesday.






We have been working really hard in maths to extend our understanding of place value. In Year 2, children need to be familiar with making two-digit numbers in lots of different ways.  Below is an example from the Maths Wall in our classroom to demonstrate some of these. 

Below are the 'Common Exception Words' for Years 1 and 2.  It is very important that your child can read and spell as many of these words as possible by the end of the year to support fluency in writing.  Please help them to be as familiar with them as possible.

These are the spellings that children in Year 2 need to know before they reach KS2. Please practise reading and spelling them at home. Many thanks.

Fire Station Fun for Maple Class!

We had a great time at the Fire Station, a huge thank you to the team for inviting us. They reminded us that you need to have smoke detectors in your home.  If you do not, then contact them and the Fire Service will help you out!

Watch out...the Maple Team of Superheroes are about!

Both Year 2 classes learnt a dance linked to our superhero topic. It was to the song 'Superman' by Black Lace. See the video below.

Mega Maths!

We have been investigating numbers through place value challenges.   In this activity, we had to make different numbers using the same number of counters on an abacus frame.  We also had to use great teamwork skills as we did this in pairs.

Wow!  What a week!

This has been a very busy, but very rewarding week in class.  The children have worked their socks off to complete maths challenges and write the whole Traction Man story in their own words.  The improvement in their work is showing already and they were able to write for a long time, building up writing stamina.  We look forward to sharing the with you on Parent's Evening.  Well done everyone!

Don't forget, it is our Super Hero Day on Friday 13th October...dig out those capes everyone!

Today we have been acting out our very own scenes from the story we have been reading, 'Traction Man' by Minnie Grey.  He is a very brave superhero and we have worked in groups to recreate some of his exciting missions.  Once we have made our comics we will post them on our class this space!
