Year 2

A warm welcome to our new Year Two page!


In Year Two this year, the team is Miss Usher, Miss Robinson, Miss Lloyd and Mrs Binning. We are looking forward to a fantastic first term together. If your child is in Year Two this year, please familiarise yourself with this page as it will let you know the various activities the class are currently involved in.


This year we will be teaching a wide range of subjects discretely: English, Maths, Science, Art, Computing, History and Geography. This term, Class 5 and Class 6 will have P.E on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure your children  bring their P.E uniforms on this day. 


Year Two SATs:

In May of next year, your children will be tested on their knowledge and understanding of the Key Stage One curriculum in English and Mathematics. The tests are not all written tests as some of you will do tasks. We will then report a teacher assessment to yourselves and the Local Authority.



We look forward to sharing an exciting year with you all smiley



Autumn One: Week One:

This week, we have been familiarising ourselves with the numbers 1-100. We created our own 'Numicon City', so that we could count the windows and practise counting all the way up to 100. We had great fun!

Autumn One: Week Two:

This week, we read the book 'The Word Collector' by Peter .H. Reynolds, to launch our new focus on vocabulary in Year Two. We gave this book 10/10 because the pictures were beautiful and we were inspired by the main character, Jerome, as he collected some weird and wonderful new words, before sharing them with his friends.

Keep your eyes peeled for all of the new words that Class 5 and Class 6 gather as we become word collectors this year!
