Year 2

Welcome back! We hope you have all had a lovely half-term holiday and have enjoyed the sunshine and warmer weather! The Year 2 team are looking forward to welcoming the children back for the second half of the summer term. We have an exciting new topic to enjoy and plenty of activities to keep us busy. We will also be preparing for your transition into Year 3.

PE Information

This half term the children will have PE lessons on Mondays and Fridays. Please ensure that both indoor and outdoor kits are available and please refer to the uniform policy to ensure the correct kit is worn. We will be doing some lessons outside, so please ensure that jogging bottoms and warm tops are included in the children’s kit.

Extended Learning
For extended learning, your child will be expected to complete weekly tasks. These will be:

  • Reading at home—four or more times a week
  • Practising weekly spellings—these will be sent home on Fridays.
  • Practising times tables—2x, 5x, 10x and 3x
  • A piece of English and Maths homework in your child’s homework book.
  • TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed.


Our new topic is ‘The Splendid Seaside.’ The children have enjoyed learning about history this year, so we are really looking forward to getting started with out new topic and learning all about how the seaside has changed over the years. We will continue to learn about plants in science and use the computers to help with our research. In art we will be painting pictures of the seaside.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact any of the Year 2 team.
