In Year Two we have fun exploring many new things and we enjoy being active, confident learners.

We have English and Maths each day and an exciting range of Topic, Computing, PE, RE and
Science lessons each week.              


Term 2 - Gunpowder, Treason and Plot!




Our topic this term is all about The Gunpowder Plot. In History, the children will learn about different historical events and order them on a timeline. They will also find out all about Guy Fawkes and the Plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament.


In Science, the children will investigate and explore the uses and properties of different materials. They will even help the Three Little Pigs choose the best material for a strong, protective house!


In D&T, the children will be designing and creating buildings similar to those from the 17th Century.


Term 1 - Trains, Planes and Automobiles

The children enjoyed exploring different modes of transport from around the world this term, as well as naming and locating continents and oceans. They also used compass directions to plot a journey.


We also enjoyed making food chain mobiles in Science and had great fun creating some transport pictures using different techniques!





Things to remember...


Swimming will take place in Terms 1,3 and 5. Damson Class will swim every Tuesday and for Cherry and Quince classes they will swim on a Thursday.


Games will take place every Friday for all of Quince Class, Cherry Class and Damson Class. 


Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school at all times, including plimsolls.
On our swimming day please ensure your child has a full swimming kit with a swimming hat - these can be purchased

from the school office. 

For both PE and swimming please make sure that earrings are taken out due to health and safety.

All personal belongings and clothing should be clearly labelled with your child's name.



In Year Two we encourage the children to read every day  or at least three times a week. The home school reading books must come into school daily. The children have the opportunity to change their reading book every day and we will keep you updated when your child has read with an adult in school.  We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read.  In addition, the children have an opportunity to receive certificates for the amount of times they read at home as part of our new Race to Read challenge!


We are also introducing ERIC TIME (Everyone Reads In Class) across the school.  ERIC Time will happen every Friday afternoon for ten minutes.  To encourage and inspire the children to enjoy reading, all children and adults in class will be reading at this time.

Home Learning
Children will have Comprehension and Spelling Detectives Home Learning sent home each week on a Friday which is due to be returned by the following Wednesday. They will also bring home times table practice each Monday in preparation for a quiz each Friday.
Each child has their own folder for their home learning,
please ensure this is returned each week .
