Welcome to Year 2

We are looking forward to welcoming the children in to their new classes.

Scroll down for some general information.


Autumn Term 1


  • This half term we will be learning about stories in which the characters defeat a monster of some kind. Many traditional tales follow this pattern. Our focus when we write our stories will be on describing the characters, both the goodies and the baddies. Towards half term we will be learning how to write instructions and thinking about how the language we use is different from our story writing language.
  • Non-negotiables: Every time the children write, we ask them to make sure that they have put a full stop at the end of every sentence, that they have used capital letters to begin sentences and for names, that they have finger spaces between their words, and that they have used a question mark at the end of a question.  

Reading, Phonics and Spelling :

We will be beginning reading and phonics/spelling lessons after the first full week back at school. The children will begin to bring reading books home at this time and we will also begin to set spelling homework on Spelling Shed. 





We will be following the  White Rose maths curriculum. Until half term our focus will be on place value, followed by addition and subtraction of numbers up to 100.


Maths homework: Maths homework is to play on Numbots for 10 minutes, 3 times per week which will help to build fluency with number factsWe will also be setting weekly optional homework on My Maths, linked to the maths taught in class. Log ins for Numbots and MyMaths will be in the front of your child's reading record.


Materials  - This term we will learning about the properties of different materials and why these properties make them suitable for different uses.



Cool Britannia - In the first half of term we will be learning all about the countries that make up the United Kingdom, including their capitals, famous landmarks, and main features of their physical geography. After half term, we will be switching our focus to history and will be learning all about the Great Fire of London.

Useful Information

PE Days

Please send the children to school in their PE kit on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will not be doing PE on the first day of term, so please come in normal school uniform.


Library Days

We will be visiting the library to change books every Wednesday. Books are issued for two weeks at a time but can be returned earlier. If your child wishes to keep a book for longer than two weeks, please send it in to school on a Wednesday so that it can be renewed.

You can check which books your child currently has on loan along with the return dates on Reading Cloud. Log in details are in the front of your child's reading record.
