Year 2


Summer Term Homework

There will be no homework set this week as we know that the Christmas period can be very busy and everyone deserves a rest.


The children have been awesome this term and have settled into the new routines really well.


This term we have learnt about The Gunpowder Plot, Remembrance Day and enjoyed the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. We have learnt about Animals including Humans during Science and Judaism during RE. In Maths we have worked hard secure our knowledge of calculations. 


Please continue to read with your child.


We hope you all have a lovely break and we look forward to seeing everyone in the new year. 


The Year 2 team

Practising handwriting at home


Each morning when we come into school we practise our handwriting.  Click on the link below to see the cursive handwriting style we do at school.  The common exception words are tricky words you should be able to read and spell by the time you have completed Year 2.  Try copying these words in your best cursive handwriting. 

 Home Reading 

Please bring reading packets to school each Monday so that we can change home reading books. 

Try to read daily with your child.  Initially, the reading might be slow and sounding out of some words might be needed.  On further reading of the book, pace should improve as should expression.  

Questions to ask your child about the book:

  • Who is the author of this book?
  • Who is your favourite character and why?
  • What do you think will happen in the end?
