Useful Information

Welcome to Year 2

We hope you have had a restful half term and the children are ready to get back to school. Our topic for this term is 'Footsteps'. The children are going to be learning about seasides past and present. We will continue to make steps into the forest school, where the children will be investigating bugs, plants and their surroundings.


Remember to provide your child with a change of clothing for the forest school. It can get quite messy!








Home Reading

Reading books will be changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It is very important that your child reads at home. Talk to you child about the type of text they are reading, interesting words and the meaning of new words.

Mrs Clayton-Young will be visiting our class at the end of the week to see how much reading the children have been doing at home, so please don't forget to sign your child's diary every time you listen to them read. 


Spellings/Maths facts

Maths facts will be tested every Thursday

Spellings will be tested every Friday.

Your child will receive a practice book to take home, they can use this to practise their facts and use the look, say, cover, write and check to practise spellings.

A little a day makes all the difference.



Will take place every Tuesday and Friday. On Friday the children will go swimming, so please remember swimming kits. If your child has long hair please remember to include a swimming cap. The first week back Friday 13th April will be a dry week for swimming so there is no need to being swimming kits.
