Hello Year 2 !


In our English lessons we will read the story The Dragon Machine by Helen Ward. It is another story about overcoming your fears and we know you will love it.


In our maths lessons we are revisiting place value and addition and subtraction. We will be learning about shapes nearer to half term. We will have a Number of the Day and introduce times table work.


We will have two PE lessons a week. Wednesday will be our outdoor lesson so please make sure children wear a pair of joggers or leggings as the weather gets chillier. Tuesday is our hall time. On both days children should come into school in their PE clothes and stay in them all day. Please try and make sure girls have hair tied back on these days.


Reading is our main form of homework in Year 2 and we expect children to read at least four times a week. We have daily reading lessons and will start to introduce a weekly written comprehension. Children will be sent home with two reading books – a reading book matched to their phonic ability and a library book. We have an exciting new system of recording the reading books using the Go Read App.


Times Tables Rock Stars is our maths homework and children will be issued with a login for this in the first couple of weeks. It takes a little while for them to get going with this as it is quite fast-paced. Please don’t give up!

Catching Up

We know that different children have different gaps in their learning. Some found it difficult to work at home, some came back into school. We want to reassure you that we have planning in place to fill these gaps and proceed quickly with their Year 2 curriculum. This may mean that your child works in a focus group with an adult or has a one-to-one intervention so it is vital that they come into school on time as some of these groups get started as soon as the children come into school.
