Important Information


School Uniform:

Please make sure that your child’s name is written inside all school clothes (cardigans, jumpers, trousers, PE kits and coats). This makes it easier to give out misplaced clothes back to their rightful owners. Remember if you take your jumper off in class, place it in the take home box to keep it safe!



This will be sent out on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday. Children will be given weekly spellings which will also be sent out on a Friday and tested on the following Friday. Remember to practice your spellings as often as you can!




By Year 2 children should be joining their handwriting. Please practice handwriting and correct letter formation as much as you can at home. We follow the Nelson Handwriting Scheme. If you're unsure of anything please come in and ask my any questions.


Changing Books:

Reading books are changed weekly, but this is not on a set day so it is very important that your child brings their book bag to school every day. Please write a comment in your child’s reading diary when you hear them read.

Reading at home is extremely beneficial for your child. Therefore there will be a weekly reading challenge for all of the children in the class. If a child reads once a week at home and it is recorded in their reading record, they will receive a raffle ticket. At the end of every week, a winner will be chosen from the raffle and will receive a prize!



Additional Information:

All children in Year 2 have usernames and passwords for Mathletics, Purple Mash and Bug Club. These can be found in their homework books. Please encourage your child to use Mathletics and Bug Club in order to enhance their Mathematical and Reading progress. Purple Mash is a fantastic resource as it covers all areas taught across the curriculum and helps children consolidate their learning. By the end of Year 2 children should be confident at recieting their 2,3,5 and 10 times tables, hit the button is a fantastic resource that allows children to consolidate their times tables knowledge in a fun way! smiley

Changes Within Living Memory 


 On Hook Day, we baked a ration chocolate cake using a recipe from the 1940’s. It tasted delicious!  The children wrote their own instructions and made their own ration book. They also learnt how much food items cost then and now. We had the opportunity to play with old fashioned toys including an egg and spoon race, dolls, a drum and a Jacob’s ladder! The children enjoyed ordering toys from past to present. What a fantastic hook day! :) 

Sea Life Centre 


On Friday 22nd March we visited the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham! We saw lots of amazing sea creatures and learnt lots of interesting facts! Take a look at some of our pictures from our fantastic day! :)

On Thursday 20th December, we had our Christmas party! We played lots of games, had some more yummy food and danced the afternoon away with our friends!


Christmas Workshop

On Thursday 13th December, we had our very own Christmas workshop! We were very lucky as some of our family joined us to get into the festive spirit! We had made festive biscuits earlier on in the week, so today we got to decorate and eat them! After that, made some Christmas wreaths to take home which looked fantastic! Then, we told a few Christmas jokes and finished our workshop off by singing some Christmas songs to the parents with Sunflower Class. We also had a Christmas Photo Booth! What a fantastic morning and thank you to all those who came along to support. Have a lovely Christmas!

We even saw the elephants and rhinos in the Safari park! We all had an excellent day, take a look at some of our pictures! smiley







On Monday 3rd December, the children all helped to put up our Christmas Tree. We had lots of fun putting the lights on and positioning the baubles! Don't you think it looks beautiful!


On Thursday 29th November, Year 2 performed their Class Assembly. The children acted out The Great Fire of London and sang beautifully to tell the story. We also had lots of dancing and instruments. The children did a fantastic job!


We had lots of fun with our parents in our Maths Inspire. Someone had stole the rainbow fishes colours and we had to work our some times table sums to help find the right colour to put back on the rainbow fish! For our prize at the end, we were awarded with some funky fish sweets! Yum!


World Mental Health Day


On Wednesday 10th October it was World Mental Health Day. During our afternoon we learnt about mental health and how a person

feels is they have mental health problems. In Miss Dallison's classroom we spoke about our worries and wrote them all down and shared them with each other. With Miss Eades we spoke about self-esteem and confidence. We discussed what made us feel happy and who we can talk to if we ever feel sad.
