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.

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.

Class Workshop

I would like to say a massive 'Well done' to both Year 2 classes on their performance at our workshop this afternoon.  They sang really well and were brilliant at explaining the task in class.

Thank you to all of the parents and relatives that could come today.  If you were unable to make it, don't worry, we will be doing more events throughout the year.


Material detectives!

We have started our Science work on 'Materials'.  To begin this and really get the children thinking about everyday objects around them, we had a materials hunt.


Year 2 Class Workshop

We have been busy preparing the class for our workshop on Tuesday 19th September.  This is a bit like an assembly but more interactive, where the children will begin with a song in the main hall at 2.30, followed by some activities in the classroom that link to 'Growth Mindset'.

We would love it if one person could come per pupil, to join in with the activities.

What a busy first week!  

Thank you to everyone who sent in a small bookbag, this has been really helpful.

We have sent home our spelling books this week and homework books.  Please check your child's bookbag. These are both new books in Year 2 and the children will get used to how we practise and test in them each week as the year goes on.

You should also have received a Year 2 newsletter either via email or a paper copy.  If a copy hasn't reached you, you can follow the link on this class page.

We are looking forward to starting our Guided Reading on Monday.

Have a great weekend!
