Welcome to Year 2


Year 2 has two classes - 2S and 2P. Mrs. Stevenson (Mon-Thurs) and Miss Greene (Friday) teach 2S and they are supported by Mrs Hill and Mrs Harris (TAs). 2P is taught by Mrs Perkins and is supported by Mrs. Pantall(TA).


PE is taught twice weekly, Mondays and Wednesdays. Your child will need a named PE kit 

including pumps/trainers in school at all times. No ear rings are to be worn during PE sessions so, ideally children are not to wear ear rings on PE days, if they need to stay in, please provide tape to cover them. 


Reading is one of the most important things your child will learn to do.  They need it to access every lesson and the world around them including iPads and Xboxes! Therefore a great emphasis is placed on this skill and we expect all children to read 4 times a week at home. Please hear them read and talk to your child about what they have read as this helps your child gain in confidence and helps them to express their understanding of what they have read.  Writing a short comment in their diary helps us to see how they have got on. The children will have a colour book band book which is their reading for pleasure book. They are encouraged to change this themselves once they have finished the book. Some words within these books may be challenging, it is okay to support your child once they have had a go at reading it. Any additional phonics books that are needed will be sent home and changed 3 times per week. These books will focus on the new sounds that children are learning so it is therefore important to practise reading these reading books more than once. 


Ready Stead Read is our exciting competition across the school. Children are encouraged to read a book off the list below and complete a book review based on the book. This review can be a written review, a picture or a short video on Seesaw explaining what they liked/disliked about the book, who their favourite character was or a description of the setting. Each book review gains the child a ticked into the RSR draw. This is drawn at the end of each half term and the lucky winner gets a golden token to choose a book from our Reading Book vending machine. 


Children in Y2 have 3 outside playtimes. During morning and afternoon breaktimes, free fruit is offered to the children but should you choose to send your child with an alternative please send a healthy snack. We consider healthy snacks to be; fruit, vegetables, cereal bars (no chocolate), cheese or yoghurts. A little reminder that we are a nut free school.
