Welcome to Year 2!

'Education is the most powerful tool that you can use to change the World'

Nelson Mandela


It's summer term and a warm welcome back to the children in Year 2 !

In Literacy we will be looking at a text called 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark',which is a fantastic story about an owl called Plop. He is the same as every baby Barn Owl, except for one thing... He is afraid of the dark! Plop thinks that the dark is nasty so his mum sends him off to talk to different people about the dark ,before making his mind up. It is a beautiful story written by a fantastic author called Jill Tomlinson. We will be writing poems and a non-chronological report about owls. After May half term we will be looking at a book called Marco's travels and learning about Brazil. In Science we will continue looking at habitats and living things.

During the summer term, we will continue to teach Read Write Inc. to develop the children’s reading skills as they learn their sounds, segmenting and blending whilst also developing their comprehension skills. If you would like to help your child to practise their phonic knowledge for reading at home, then click on the link below for a short video…

This term in Mathematics we will be continuing to develop and deepen our knowledge of number, including Addition and Subtraction through fun, interactive and collaborative activities. We will be learning about Measurement, including Length, Mass and Temperature and also,Time. Please continue to help your child to practise their Maths with you at home with a particular focus on the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. Below is a place value game that you can try at home - ‘Place the Penguin’ - using the following link…

There are such a variety of useful resources on the internet for teaching counting, shapes, measure and so on – all disguised as games! Here are some further links if you would like to help your child to practise at home...


Some apps for tablet computers are:

King of maths, Doodle maths, Monster math, Conundra math and Penguin jump maths!



P.E Information!

Please make sure that you bring the following items in your P.E kits:


Indoor kit: a white t-shirt, black shorts, pumps and socks!

Outdoor kit: You will need plain, dark coloured jogging bottoms, a jumper or hoody and outdoor trainers, as our wonderful weather can be very unpredictable!

Please make sure all items are clearly labelled in a named sports bag to help children look after their clothes. 

All children in Y2 will be having PE on Tuesday afternoons with S4YC sports coaches and also on Monday mornings with their class teachers.



We are full of enthusiasm for the term ahead and we are really excited about working with your amazing children! We continue to look forward to all of the fantastic learning opportunities that this will bring and we thank you for your continued support.
