 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, London, the Arctic and Africa. Our topic for our final half term is Factories and Chocolate. This is one of Miss Mellor's favourite foods! 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 we have learnt about 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.






Please find below the 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: Amazing Africa

In summer 1, we are learning all about Africa. We are finding out about where Africa is located in the world and its character.

During this half term, we have been finding out about Africa to write poems based on Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain. We are currently writing a non-chronological report, linked to science, about African Animals. Year 2 have been writing some fantastic outcome pieces all year!


Topic: Factories

Our final topic of the academic year will be Factories and Chocolate. We will be writing our own stories inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

We will focus on history and what factories were like and what can be made there.


Environmental Advocacy Week Winners!

Year 2 are also the winners of the 2021 Environmental Avocacy Week where we set out on a project called Year 2 Does the Repurpose Shop. We made a real impact by using old bits of materials and packaging but finding new, imaginative ways to use them.


We are reading...

In Year 2, we love books! We are reading a non-fiction text called African Animals to help us write our non-chronological reports.

We have storytime everyday. We are currently enjoying Sam Wu is NOT Afraid of Space. When we read, we collect high level vocabulary for our Tier Two Word Tree. We use this to complete morning vocabulary challenges.

Our reading area is an important part of our classroom which links to our topic learning. Currently, we have a safari inspired den. Soon, it will be transformed into the packaging of a chocolate bar.

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!
