Welcome to Year 2  



Your teachers are Miss May and Miss Malone!     

This letter contains some key information as you enter year 2.

Year 2 Homework


What shall I bring to school?   

Please bring a water bottle every day! There is no need to bring a PE kit, just wear PE clothes on your PE day. Please don’t bring toys. You can bring fruit for snack time!


When is my PE day?

Both year two classes will have PE outdoors on Tuesday and indoors on Thursday. Wear your PE clothes to school on these days and remember your water bottle!


What about reading books?

We will be continuing with home reading,you will be getting reading books as normal!


What will I be learning about in year 2?

This term we will be starting with a wonderful book called ‘Grendel’ by David Lucas. Our writing and art will be based around this book and we will be creating our own picture books!

We will  of course be doing maths, phonics, science and everything in between. Spelling lists and homework will be added to the class page every Friday, along with a topic overview at the start of term. ( This will be uploaded on Friday!)

As always, we are happy to answer questions, so  feel free to contact the office with queries!

Kind Regards,

The Year 2 team.






Introducing Seesaw our learning platform.

Your child will be coming home with an invitation to join a new learning platform, Seesaw. 

Please click below to be taken to the site.


Seesaw is an online learning platform that is accessible from most electronic devices connected to the internet and addresses some of the issues gathered from our parent feedback from the lockdown :

· Printing – worksheets not great - seesaw allows children to edit and adapt worksheets on their devices and submit.

· Access - some only could use tablets/phones - Seesaw is accessible from most devices.

Over the next few weeks we will be showing the children how to use the new platform in the event of any further lockdowns to help us to improve the delivery of our remote learning.
