Welcome to Year 2

Miss Laycock is the red class teacher and Mrs Whitehead is the blue class teacher.  Mrs Bowles, Mrs Thacker and Mrs Southam are the Year 2 teaching assistants.

PE will be on Monday afternoon and Friday morning.  Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school.

SATS take place throughout May and June in the Summer term.  Parents will be invited to an Information Evening nearer the time.


Wow, where has 8 weeks gone? What a great start our Year 2’s have had to the year.  We are so proud of how they have risen to the challenges of Year 2.

In Literacy the children have learnt all about verbs, nouns and adjectives and how to write instructions.  You may have seen the pompoms (or half-finished ones) come home!  The children have really enjoyed learning about life in WWII and what it meant to stay safe.  They have become pretty good at giving commands as they know how important it was to follow them during the war.

In Maths, we’ve been learning lots of different addition and subtraction strategies so the children are able to choose the best one for the particular question.  We’ve also recapped both 3D and 2D shapes which has linked into some of our art painting tasks too!

In PE the children have enjoyed playing several new warm up games, improving their balance, building their agility and accuracy.  The children have collaborated well in pairs and teams, giving positive feedback and moral support.  Excellent attitudes!

Here’s to another superb half-term!
