Thank you to all parents/carers who attended the meeting. Click on the box below for the information we shared.
We hope that you and your children had a very enjoyable Easter break and we would like to welcome everyone back to the start of a new term. The children are excited to continue their journey to develop new skills as well as applying the skills they have learnt so far.
The Summer term is always a crucial time for children in Year 2 to ensure they continue to make progress in their learning and we need your support to ensure they are meeting our expectations of learning. This will greatly support us with our judgments and transition to Year 3 over the coming months.
One of our new Dimensions topics for this term is ‘Inter Nation Media Station!’ As part of this topic, children will develop their broadcasting skills inspired by their favourite children TV presenters such as Joe Tasker, Alishea Campbell-Drummond and Lee Hinchcliffe.
In Maths, they will consolidate adding two numbers together (starting with counting on and moving onto partitioning) and will begin to quickly recite the number bonds to 10, 20 and 100. The children will continue to learn how to solve subtractions. They will learn the features of 2D and 3D shapes and be able to name triangles, squares, rectangles, circles, hexagons, pentagons and octagons, and will also look at how to measure length and height.
In English children will be encouraged to apply features of a narrative including a range of suffixes (-er, est, -ful, -ly –less) to write narratives of classic tales from the 70s and 80s, such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Hungry Lion, Jim and the Beanstalk and The Paper Bag Princess. They will also write instructions linked to Road Dahl classic The BFG.
Throughout the term, children will have a weekly spelling test. This will be on a Friday and new spellings will be given out on Mondays
Your child will continue to have their purple homework books to develop their creative skills linked to Dimensions topics. Additional homework will also be given to ensure children are consolidating their learning in the classroom at home such as phonics and writing.
Please continue to support your child’s reading at home as much as possible. We remind you that children’s books need to be in school every day. We would also encourage you to write a comment in their home/school diary, building their confidence and the link between home and school. Any extra practise at home is always welcome!
Children need to wear their PE kits from home and children in Year 2 will have P.E on Tuesdays. Please ensure that children wear the correct PE kit in school at all times. In the interests of safety no jewellery, including earrings and bangles, should be worn on PE days. Please cover religious bangles with a wristband and cover ears with plasters.
Please ensure all uniform (including PE kit and pumps/trainers) is labelled with your child’s full name and class – there plenty of PE clothes that were disposed at the end of the Spring term and we are aware how expensive it is!
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day. Thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
We have much to be excited about for the Summer Term and we look forward to a term packed full of learning and progress.

On Friday 7th January 2022, Year 2 children took part in Rumble in the Jungle inspiration day. The children dressed up as explorers and rainforest animals. They recited a poem called ‘Walking through the Jungle’ and created their own rainforest poem. They ‘imagined’ they were explorers to visit the Amazon Rainforest and enjoyed learning number facts in Jungle Maths. In the afternoon, the children created their own paper plate rainforest animal and collage trees for their classroom.
