Year 2

Welcome back! We hope you had some spooky fun over half-term!

The Year 2 team are looking forwards to continuing with our topic about “The United Kingdom” and we’re excited to start reading our new book for this half-term: “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. We’ll also be finding out what Sunny the Meerkat has been up to over his half-term holiday… we wonder where he could have been?

PE Information

This half term the children will have PE lessons on Monday and Tuesday. 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 to be tested on the following Friday
  • Practising times tables—2x, 5x, 10x and 3x
  • TTRockstars and spelling shed – log-ins are in the children’s reading diaries
  • A Maths and English task set each week on Teams (please see your child’s reading record for log-in details).


We are continuing with our fascinating topic all about “The United Kingdom”. Now we know the four countries of the UK, we’re going to be finding out a bit more about what makes them special. We’re also going to learning about everyday materials and how we use them in our science lessons.

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