Welcome to Year 2! 


Hello everyone! Welcome to Year 2. I will be your class teacher this year, Ms Haswell smiley

I wanted to let you know some important things to help prepare you for the school year...


In our classroom we will have the lovely Mrs Padmore to help us with our learning. Our PE lessons will be on a Tuesday afternoon and a Friday morning. Please come dressed in your PE kit on Tuesday only. 



In Maths we will be starting to learn about 'place value' and the place value of 2 and 3 digit numbers. You will learn how to add and subtract numbers on a number line, using dienes and the written method. 



We are going to be reading and learning about a new book called 'The Secret Sky Garden'. During English you will learn to write some fantastic stories, write instructions and even write your own recount. 



We love reading in Year 2! We hope you will enjoy taking your reading books home to your family and showing them your fabulous reading. We will be reading a range of different books in Year 2. You will learn to ask and answer questions about a text, make predictions and complete comprehension questions. 



In Year 2, you will take part in daily phonics lessons where you will learn lots of different sounds to help you with your reading and writing. 



Our Theme lesson this term is based on History, we will learn about some fascinating people from the past. We will learn about Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Neil Armstrong. I wonder if you can think of any other famous people of the past? 



In RE, we will learn all about the story of 'Creation'! You will learn about how God created the world and how we can show God's love by keeping his world and creation safe. 



Our Science topic this half term is 'Materials', you will be taking part in fun investigations and experiments to help you learn interesting facts about all the different materials. 


We can't wait to meet you all soon and get settled in, we are so looking forward to learning lots of new things together this year and we hope you are too!


Should there be any questions, please feel free to contact me via email at '' or by phoning the school office on 01206 865747 smiley
