Year 2

Safer Internet Day 2018

Red and Murphy, our favourite pair of puppets, talk about what it feels like when being online becomes too much. They try meditation and conclude it is important to take a minute, switch devices off and talk to a grown up.

Welcome to Year 2


Click on the tree below or check out ClassDojo to see what amazing things we have been up to in Year 2.



In Year 2 learning is both challenging and fun and a place where we visit many exciting topics throughout the course of the year. Some topics we will cover this year include Dinosaurs, Festivals, The Great Fire, Africa, The Seaside and World Cup 2018.



Our topics for the Spring Term are 'The Great Fire of London' and 'Africa'. We will be looking at how the fire started and take a look at the damage caused. We will also be doing some work around where places are and be taking a close look at London. In the second half of term, we will be looking at the continent of Africa. We will focus in on a particular village and compare it with our town of Darwen.




We have PE in Year 2 on Wednesday and Thursday and as such I am asking that all children keep a PE kit in school for these sessions with each item of clothing labelled with a name. We also have swimming on Wednesday afternoon. The groups will be the same as in Year 1, Group 1 will be going first on Wednesday 13th September 2017.



Reading books are changed daily as long as the reading record has been signed to say that your child has read. Points will also be collected for our whole school reading challenge in which a class has the chance to win a big mystery prize at the end of the half term. 



Spellings and Times Table Homework is given out every Friday and children have until the following Thursday to complete and return it.  This spelling sheet does not need to be returned to school and should be kept at home to practice. There may be times during the year where small writing tasks or project style activities are sent home instead of times tables.


In Year 2, I have an open door policy and should you have any queries or concerns please feel free to pop in at the end of the day, catch me on the yard, send me a message below or ring to arrange an appointment at a convenient time.


Thank you in advance for all of your support.
