Autumn Two

After a fantastic half term learning all about 'Footprints from the Past' we are now moving onto our next topic 'London's Calling'. We will be learning all about the Great Fire of London. In English we will be writing newspapers based on our class text 'The Baker's Boy and the Great Fire of London', we will be writing poetry based on candle flames and we will be writing letters to the Queen!

Welcome to Year 2 

I am delighted to be teaching your children this year and look forward to watching them grow and flourish. 

If there is ever anything you wish to discuss with me please do not hesitate to pop in.

Important Information

Reading Book

Please make sure your child reads at home every night and signs their diary. Reading is a crucial area of the curriculum which feeds into so many other subjects. Reading helps your child to progress in every area of their learning.


PE Kit

Please keep your child's PE kit in school at all times. Our PE lessons are on a Tuesday; however, it is essential that the PE kit stays in school and is in at all times. We also participate in dance on a Friday. 


Spellings and Times tables

Spelling patterns and spelling rules are taught throughout the week in class. The children are tested every Friday on their spellings and are given a new set of spellings for the following week. It is essential children practise these spellings at home too in order to retain their learning. 

By the end of Year 2, children are expected to know their 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables in any order, and the corresponding division facts. The children use Times Table Rockstars in school weekly and should also use this at home. Your child's log in can be found in their homework diary. We have mental math tests every Friday. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come in and ask. Thank you for your continued support, Mrs Whitehead and Miss Crutchley.
