In Year 2, the children develop their independent learning approaches within a supportive and considerate environment. The Year 2 team work closely together to create an exciting and connected curriculum that inspires children to embrace learning challenges.
- Reading books are changed every Tuesday and Thursday. Children need to bring their reading books to school each day.
- Children will visit the school library every Tuesday.
- Year 2 PE days are Tuesday morning (outdoor) and Friday (indoor) but as you can appreciate, timetables have to be flexible so the days may change. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) with trainers that they can fasten independently. In the colder months the children will need appropriate clothing for the cold weather.
- Super-Learner Mission books are due back on Friday.
- Our weekly spelling quiz is on a Friday morning and the following week’s spellings will be handed out each Monday.
You will find our curriculum information further down the page!

The children have been practising measuring capacity and reading scales. This week the children will be using many different types of scales and practising to read numbered scales and scales without all numbers marked.
To practise this skill at home the children could continue to practise reading scales of measurement at home using measuring jugs and weighing scales.
The children could also use these interactive games to continue reading scales of capacity and weight. Click on the images below for the links.

Ways to help at home
- Read every day
- Practise your spellings and common exception words
- As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
- Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
- Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
- Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
- Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
