Welcome To Year 2

In year 2 you will find Mrs Stead and Mrs Brittleton :)

Day to day



Same format as last year. One piece to be handed in weekly on a Monday. Children may choose which piece they wish to complete but a log will be kept of when homework has been completed.


Children to spend the week learning a spelling rule or set of high frequency words. Words will be given out on Mondays to practice in the week and will be tested on Fridays.

Show and tell

Unfortunately we will not be able to continue show and tell in year 2 unless the children have an achievement they have done outside of school they would like to share with the class.

Times Table challenge

In year 2 children start the times table challenge. Starting with the 2 times table children will be given them to learn at home (at the back of their spelling books) and tested twice a week, on a Monday and a Thursday in a timed test with mixed up questions.


Please continue to bring money in daily in purses or wallets. Fruit and milk are still given out daily.

Please bring in your Reading Books everday.

Our Spring Topic


This term we will be keeping our history hats on to discover the world’s great explorers. We will start with Christopher Columbus, researching what made him famous and how he set out on expeditions across the seas. The we will move onto Neil Armstrong and compare how his journey of exploration to the moon differed from Mr Columbus. We will use our research to produce diary entries, newspaper reports and recounts amongst other written tasks.


In maths we will be learning all about fractions of shapes, amounts and objects. We will be telling the time to quarter past, o’clock, half past and quarter to the hour, as well as recognising how time moves in five minute intervals. We will also be coverings measure in length, weight and capacity.

In science we will be looking animal adaptations to their environment and linking it with our class text Meerkat Mail and Seahorse after Easter. In Geography we will be using maps to track the journeys of our explorers and locate countries and continents.
