Year 2


Welcome to the Year 2 page.

Mrs Torrie and Mrs Rogers share the teaching of year 2.
Keep an eye on the class page for any letters that we send out. You can also follow the school social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with the latest news and events.

Your child now has their own personalised login details for TT-Rockstars. They can logon both in school and at home to practise their times tables. They will receive spelling activities each week via google classroom.

If you have any questions please write a note in your child's communication diary. You can also contact us via the school office or on the Year 2 email address: We will endeavour to support you and your child the best we can.

In Literacy this half term we will be exploring Grandad's Island by Benji Davies. We will take inspiration from the text to write our own finding narratives and instructions.

Please make sure you're reading with your child each night and sign their communication diary when you've heard them read. Two RWI books will go home with your child each Monday and be returned to school on a Friday to be cleaned over the weekend.

We will continue to explore the inverse relationship between addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to solve missing number problems. We will also be starting our unit on measure, with a focus on length, mass and temperature.

In RE we will be exploring the Easter Story.

In computing we will be learning about using the internet to research.

Time to Talk/ My Happy mind
To help children transition back into school life and to support their mental health in such uncertain times we will continue with our Time to Talk and My Happy Mind sessions once a week.
