Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 page!

Our new topic for the remainder of Summer 1 is Superheroes. We will be begin with our exciting Superhero launch day on Tuesday 4th May. In Literacy we will be writing superhero commands and questions which we will use in a superhero story, based on 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra. In Science, we will be finding out about how materials can be changed using our super strength, by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching. Our weather superhero friends will help us to learn about the location of hot and cold areas in the world too. 

 If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email via the school office.

 Additional Information:


Encouraging a love of reading is the single most important contribution you can make to your child's educational development at this stage.  We ask that you and your child read four times each week and make a note of this on Seesaw. 

Don’t forget that your child can use Reading Eggs to reinforce their phonics and reading at home.


A list of the Year 1 and 2 common exception words that your child is expected to read and write by the end of year can be found here.

Mental Maths

You can help your child by helping them to learn their 2, 5 and 10 multiplication and division tables. Click here for a great game for practising times tables and division facts as well as number bonds!

Don’t forget that your child can use Mathseeds to reinforce their Maths learning at home. The driving tests are great for practising their quick recall of number facts.
