Year 2


Miss Murray


Miss Bennett

We have been learning about Materials! Which Material do you think made the best bridge?

Welcome to Year 2


Welcome to year 2. This is an exciting year in your child's education. This year's work is all about consolidating the knowledge that we have been learning in key stage one. 


We are going to explore a variety of topics throughout the year. Our learning will explore the UK, The Plague, the Great Fire of London and lots in-between.  We will also be working on our maths skills using a number of functions to complete sums and expand our mathematical reasoning and numeracy skills.  


In reading, there will be a continuation of their phonetic understanding and moving from blending to read words to recognising words by sight. We're also moving towards a bigger focus on grammar, punctuation and spelling, so lots of reading at home will support this. There is a lot of work to be done, but the year is packed full of exciting things to discover before moving on to key stage 2.

Meet the Teacher

Please follow the link below to watch a short video, giving additional information about Year 2. This is in place of the 'Meet the Teacher' meetings that parents are usually invited in for during the autumn term.

Home Learning Covid-19

During the Covid-19 school closure, support for home learning was provided for all pupils in Year 2 via educational websites such as Purple Mash, EdShed, TTRockstars and Scholastic Reading Pro. Should we find ourselves in a position where we have to isolate a particular year group or go into lockdown again, yours child's log ins for all of these websites have been stuck inside the front page of their Reading Record. If you are having trouble accessing these, please contact us on and we will help to get you up and running.


In the event of another lockdown or year 2 having to isolate, further information on home learning will be posted here.
