Welcome to Year Two


Year Two are taught by Miss Mellor, Miss Crutchley and Mrs Gallagher (AM Only).

So far in Year 2, we have done some fantastic learning all about dinosaurs. Our topic this half term is London's Calling. This is one of Miss Mellor's favourite places. Take a look on our Twitter page @StPetersYr2 to see our amazing work and find out more!

If you would like to learn more about what topics your child will be learning in Year Two, please find our plan for the whole year.

For a more in-depth look at our curriculum, come back each half term to find the latest updates and our Medium Term Plans.






PE Day

Your child will be taught PE by Mr Downs every Tuesday afternoon. As a school, we are asking that on the day of your child's PE lesson they attend the full school day in their PE kit to keep everyone safe.

Topic: London's Calling

In autumn 2, we are learning all about London. We are finding out about where London is located in the world and all the landmarks you can visit. Take a look at the photo below as a sneak peek into Miss Mellor and Paddington's trip to London this summer.

During this half term, we will be learning about Remembrance Day and creating a special poem based on The Sound Collector by Roger McGough. We will write a letter from Paddington to the Queen about his summer in London and finally, we will create a newspaper report to recount The Great Fire of London. I am looking forward to reading super pieces of writing in Year 2!



We are reading...

In Year 2, we love books! We are reading Paddington's Guide to London to help us write our letter. Later in the term, we will use an anniversary special book for The Great Fire of London too.

We have storytime everyday. We are currently enjoying The Twits by Roald Dahl.

Our reading area is an important part of our classroom which links to our topic learning.

Home Learning

Year 2 work really hard to impress Miss Mellor at home as well. 

Please make sure you check SchoolPing for the weekly spellings. These get sent on Monday and your child is tested on them the following Monday.

There are always Times Table Rockstar battles to take part in! We ask that your child spends some time in each week practising their times tables of 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s on the TTRS app. We then hold a lunchtime club on Fridays for children to enjoy.

Commencing 13.11.20, your child will bring home a banded reading book. This will be linked to their phonics sounds and learning throughout the week. Please listen to your child read and update this in the Reading Record book.

The Year 2 team are always eager to see any other projects and home learning. In fact, lots of Year 2 have earned fish for their fantastic pictures and sentence work at home!
