Year 2

Welcome to our Year Two class page 2018-2019


Our topic for the Spring Term is 'Reach for the Sky'. A treasure hunt looking for underpants with hidden letters, finally revealed the name of our focus text for the term - 'Aliens Love Underpants!' It was great fun reading the rhyming story and learning about alien antics! 

 I have been very impressed with the newspaper reports the children have produced after interviewing Mr and Mrs Woodward, who claim to have had alien visitors in their garden?? Well done Year 2!

In the event of a 'Snow Day', here are some activities to try:


After you have enjoyed the snow, you could try:

  • Baking - Follow instructions or a recipe to make a winter treat. Can you measure the ingredients and time it accurately. Take a picture of your delicious treats.
  • Write an Acrostic Poem - Choose a word linked to winter e.g. snowflake, snowman and write a sentence or a word that begins with the letter on each line.
  •  Draw a picture of a winter scene. How is it different around the world? If you feel creative you could use a range of media (paint, pencil, pens, materials etc).


The class will have PE on a Monday and Friday so please ensure that PE kits are in school with all items clearly named.

The children need a water bottle and outdoor shoes in school every day.

Homework will be sent home on a Wednesday to be completed and returned the following Monday. This will include spellings linked to our Phonics and Key words along with a Maths activity and our writing focus. 

Spellings will be tested on a Monday and recorded in the back of your Homework book, so please ensure these are in school every Monday.

It is important that you hear your child read regularly and discuss their reading with them to check understanding of the text. Please sign their reading diaries, adding comments when relevant.


The Year Two team are:

Mrs Kelly - Class teacher Monday - Thursday

Mrs Gomme - Class teacher Friday

Mrs Greatbatch - Teaching assistant Monday - Friday lunchtime

Miss Ryan - Monday - Friday


We would really welcome you to come and speak to us if you have any queries - no matter how big or small. Time is limited in the mornings and not particularly private, so the end of the day is preferable if it can wait.


Mrs Kelly
