Welcome to Year 2
Our P.E. days are Wednesday and Thursday. Come to school in your P.E. kit on these days if you are taking part. Please make sure earrings are removed.
Year 2 are split into Robins taught by Mrs Chatwin and Wrens taught by Miss Honess. Mrs Grimes works across Year 2. Mrs Russell (Music) and Mr Jones (P.E.) will also deliver lessons on Wednesday afternoons in both classes. Mrs Russell will be teaching Robins on a Friday.

🎯 Spelling - complete the activities linked to this week's spelling rule. We have a spelling test each Thursday. A new spelling rule will be taught on a Friday, and your Spelling Shed games will be updated with the new rule. >> Log-in to Spelling Shed here <<
⏱️ Maths skills - practise your times tables as much as possible using Times Tables Rock Stars. The garage is where you level-up and earn the most coins per answer! Use the studio to set your 'rock status'. >> Log-in to TTRS here <<
If you are still a little unsure of your times tables, don't panic! We have not explored multiplication to this level yet, so you can continue practising your place value, addition and subtraction on Numbots. >>Log-in to Numbots here<<
📚 Reading - Aim to read your banded reading book with an adult for at least 10 minutes a day. Bring in your book on a Monday and Thursday for it to be changed. Remember to enjoy some of your own books as well! For a guide to supporting your child with their reading, click here.
Look at our computing skills!
We have been learning how to make our colour 'pop' using the iPads. We have used inspiration from the artist, Theresa Elvin. Have a look at a few of our examples.
Maths game recommendation
The children can use this game to improve their quick maths facts. Why not have a go at home?
We recommend having a go at the number bonds levels (except the decimal ones), doubles to 50, halves from 10 to 20, times tables (2s, 5s, 10s and 3s) and division facts (÷2, ÷5, ÷10).
Parent information sessions
