‘Growing and learning together to be the best we can be’

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!


Your teacher will very soon be filling this page with exciting class news, pictures of things we’ve done and more.


Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!


Time travelling, theatre trips and alien invasions, there is never a dull moment in year 2!




In year 2 the teachers are Miss Huntington, Mrs Sharp and Miss Cheema.  The year 2 staff believe in making education exciting, stimulating and challenging. We aim to make life long memories.




2H and 2C PE on Wednesday and Thursday and 2S on a Monday and Wednesday.




Over the year we have 6 main learning themes:

Traditional tales: looking at a range of alternative traditional tales.

Back to the Future: this will be a history focus, travelling through time. The children will be looking at King Henry VIII, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth.

Lost in Space & Pioneers: The main text will be ‘Man on the Moon’ by Sam Bartram. The children will look at non-fiction and fictional texts. A study on Neil Armstrong.

Great Fire of London: a study of the historical event. The children will write for a range of purposes.

Journey Stories: This unit explores the theme of journeys, whether real or imagined. In journey stories it is usual for the main character to meet people, animals, physical landmarks or obstacles along the way.

Author Study & Indian Spice: an author chosen by the children. We will be looking at some of India’s traditions and food.



Children are issued with homework every Thursday. The homework will primarily be Maths and spellings. This may change in the spring term, when we will send homework linked to the punctuation and grammar taught in school.

At home, we would appreciate it if you focused on helping your child read and spell the common exception words that were sent home earlier this year, and their times tables (2,5, and 10 times table).


Reading books

Reading books will be changed twice a week, if a child shows readiness to move on. Children’s reading records are stamped for each time they are listened to read at home and given a reward for every 10 stamps they receive.


Learning environment

Our team works incredibly hard to ensure the learning environments are both stimulating and safe for the children. The classroom displays are changed regularly and reflect the topic being covered.


ICT games to try at home
