Welcome to Year 2!

Our class team is Mrs Hutchinson
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Seymour


Here we are by Oliver Jeffers, The BFG by Roald Dahl, a variety of traditional tales such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Gingerbread Man. The day the crayons quit by Drew Daywalt, Beegu, The Journey, Sandy’s Circus and different animal stories.

Due to current restrictions and the need to quarantine books – Reading books are currently given out on a Monday and collected in a Thursday. The children read every day as part of individual or guided reading activities. Reading at home is so important in helping the children to make progress and apply the skills they have learnt at school – please write comments in your child’s reading record.

Some of the books we will be reading this year are:he children help to choose the target for the Proud Cloud and the aim is to get everyone’s names up on the cloud by the end of the week. We also have weekly certificates for the Star of the week and the Writer of the week.


PE currently takes place on a Wednesday. The children have 2 sessions – one on the morning through active maths and then a PE skills focused lesson on the afternoon.
Children are to come to school dressed in their school PE kit, making sure it is suitable for outdoor PE as well as indoor.


Children choose their dinners every morning from the menu or they can bring in a packed lunch. School dinners are free for Year 2.


Spelling rules/patterns are taught to the children every Friday. They will bring spellings using that rule, home to learn, along with 2 common exception word spellings (tricky words). The children will be tested on those spellings the following Friday.


We regularly use the Marvellous Me! App to keep you informed about some of the wonderful things the children have achieved during each week. Make sure you have a log in (available from the office) so that you can receive your child’s Marvellous Me! Certificates and photos.


This app will sometimes be used for communication and home learning. It will also be used for remote learning if needed. Your child should have brought a log in and password home to use Seesaw. Please ask if you do not have this.
