Welcome to Year 2. Here you can find key information and hear all about the exciting learning that is taking place in our year group.
Meet the Team
The Year 2 team consists of Miss Miller, Mrs Hall, Mrs Airey, Miss Thompson, Mrs Brown, Mrs Carter and Mrs Quantrill.
Home-school books and reading books and records should be brought into school every day. It is also encouraged that your child brings their own bottle of water each day.
Year 2 pupils have PE on Wednesday. Please refer to their Home School Contact book for up to date information.
Spelling homework will be handed out on a Friday and KIRFS and timestables will be handed out on a Wednesday. Your child will be given a list of 10 spellings to learn, and will be expected to practice their times tables on the TT rockstars website. Once your child has logged in (find their log in information in their home school contact book) they should click on the 'garage'' button, to access personalised times tables which have been set by the class teacher. Children will also be sent home a weekly KIRF test. Please help your child to learn the weekly maths facts. You can find the weekly KIRFS in your child's Home School Contact Book. The weekly KIRF and timestables test will take place on a Wednesday but the spelling test will take place on a Friday.
Summer Term 2 Weekly Spellings
KIRFS are key instant recall facts which we will be testing in school every week. Please help your child at home with these as part of their homework.
Take a look at our pictures to see what we have been learning about in school.
Mental Health Week
The children enjoyed connecting with nature for mental health week. We discussed how it is good for your well-being to get outside and explore nature. We loved listening to the birdsong, and identfying different plants and fowers. We even spotted a magpie and lots of minbeasts.
Designing a Vehicle
In Year 2 we have been designing and creating vehicles. We learnt skills like scoring, cutting and punching holes. The children learnt about how the chassis and the axels help the car to move. Here are some children with their finished pieces.
We took part in NSPCC Number Day. This is a maths inspired event and on this day the children took part in a number of different maths activities. The children had lots of fun invsetigating different maths challenges.
Year 2 have been learning about the famous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama who using dots to create her art. We used different media to complete work in her style.
Year 2 Art Yayoi Kusama
The children have enjoyed learning about the artist Yayoi Kusama this term. Kusama loved to piant pumpkins and used bright polka dots to create her work. The children have enjoyed recreating pumpkins in the style of Yayoi Kusma.
Year 2 have been making musical instruments after researching which instruments could be plucked, banged, blown and shook.
Design and Technology - making a sandwich
Today, the children made a sandwich in school. They measured the ingredients carefully and practiced their cutting skills. I hope you enjoy eating your delicious sandwiches after school today.
Thank you for all your donations of food and toiletries. This will make a massive difference to others.
As we are unable to celebrate in our local church this year - we thought we would bring our harvest celebration song to you! We hope you enjoy the children’s lovely singing. This is our Harvest Festival song.
