Mrs Harris, Mrs Rees and Mrs Winkett would like to welcome you to our Year 2 class page.


We are now entering the summer term and have two new exciting topics for you.


The first is called 'Scented Garden' and we will be planting seeds and finding out what flowers need to grow. We will be making healthy fruit and veg snacks and also be learning about a contrasting locality to our own, Australia!


The second is called 'Beachcombers' and we will be learning about the seaside in the olden days, finding out about what lives at the beach and what we do when we go there. We will also be making some beach art!


I'm still putting work for you to complete each week on Purple Mash and My Maths. As always you can contact me on:



Our Year 2 topics  are:

  • Street Detectives
  • Beat Band Boogie
  • Wriggle and Crawl
  • Land Ahoy!
  • Scented Garden
  • Beachcombers


Please help your child read and spell the common exception words in these lists. Thank you.

Since we are encouraging pupils to use the internet more than ever for home learning we must, as adults, try to ensure they remain safe online. We encourage you to monitor their internet use regularly and carefully. If you would like any more information about this then visit the Parent Tab on our homepage.

Here are some ideas to help with your learning at home:

  • Practice reading and spelling common exception words (lists above).
  • Write a story or information text.
  • Practice known handwriting joins.
  • Practice the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. This can be done using Rockstars Times tables which you all have a login for)
  • Visit the My Maths website to complete the weekly tasks.
  • Practice your number bonds to 10 (1+9, 2+8) and 20 (1+19, 2+18)
  • Practice using a tens and ones grid to add and subtract two 2 digit numbers.

In the second half of the Autumn term our topic was Beat Band Boogie. We  learned about different sounds, made our own musical instruments out of junk and learned about different composers throughout history.
In the first half of the Autumn term we had fun being Street Detectives and we learned about the local area. We  identified materials, read and drew maps and painted our houses and features of the local area.
