Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


Class teacher: Miss Barker
Support staff: Miss Sharman


Autumn Term  - Enchanted Kingdom 

​We started off the new school year with our Enchanted Kingdom topic. The children have been exploring the United Kingdom and comparing it to Kenya. They have been enjoying some traditional tales from Africa and had a fantastic time writing their riddles about African animals. As we move into October and celebrate Black History month we will celebrate significant people who have contributed to the national and international achievements in Africa.  


Spring Term  - Castles and Creatures 

The spring term is full of magic and creativity. During this term the children will develop their writing skills and their imaginations will thrive as we explore a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. History will be a focus in the Spring term, where we will research the castles of the United Kingdom and find out what it would be like to live as a knight!

Summer Term  - High in the Sky

We end our school year on a high, as we enjoy exploring the past, present and future of flight and space travel. The children will eat like astronauts and find out what it would be like to live in space. As always, there will be plenty of great writing opportunities including writing to a famous astronaut and who knows, we may even get a reply! 

We have PE on a Monday afternoon. Please come to school wearing your PE kit every Monday. We will be outside so do make sure that you are warm enough.

Purple communication books:
Every child has their "Purple book" and this is for you to give us any important messages from home. The children hand these in us to check. We may also write messages back to you so please don't forget to check them.

The children get homework every week which will consist of a phonics/spelling, reading and maths activity. These activities will help the children to consolidate their learning in school. Homework will be on Seesaw on Wednesday and will be due in every Monday.  


Reading Books

Reading books should be brought in daily and will be changed every Monday. The children will get a special reading sticker for reading 5 times each week. Children who have read 5 times every week each half term will be photographed and put on our Reading Champions board.
