Welcome to Year 2!

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away...


Are you ready to go on an adventure far, far away? This Spring term we are going to be inspired by different fairy tale stories and use them to influence our amazing writing. We will become published authors in the library with our own fairy tale stories.


We will discover gruesome monsters, brave knights and enormous towers as well as learning all about Sir Charlie Stinky Socks! We will be looking at some classic traditional stories like The Elves and the Shoemaker and Rapunzel.

In maths, we will be exploring 2D and 3D shapes, beginning to explore different types of measurement as well as securing our knowledge of multiplication and division facts.


Year 2 will delve into the creative world of collage and printing and will create their own pieces of art to display in our Year 2 Art exhibition.


This term we will also be preparing for end of Key Stage 1 SATS by taking part in fun quizzes and consolidating our learning. We love to challenge ourselves in Year 2 so can't wait to see the progress that we're making! Have a look at our exciting topic web to find out even more of the amazing things that Year 2 get to learn about!



Autumn Term 2017


The Autumn term was a very busy term. We  had some exciting events, all of which support the children in their learning. Our main topic was the Great Fire of London and the children enjoyed a visit from Samuel Pepys who came in to recount his diary of events from the awful event. The children made model houses and we have made a video below to show off their amazing work.






Please practise reading at home and weekly spellings.

There will also be a range of other homework over the term.



Please ensure that your child brings a water bottle to school every day which is filled only with water.

Children can place their bottle in their class water tray first thing in the morning.


Please can you make sure that your children do not use the outside equipment before or after school.

It is important that all children take part in PE which is a vital part of the curriculum. Please make sure your child has a P.E. kit in school that is clearly labelled and ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled, including coats and jumpers.


Any questions please always feel welcome in year 2. Please come to speak to a member of the year 2 team.


Sparrow and Guillemot both have library on a Wednesday.
