Key Information


Welcome to Year Two!  We have a fun-packed, exciting half term of learning planned and are looking forward to continuing your child’s learning journey in Year 2. 


Our new Year Two name is:

The children have been learning all about Stephen Hawking and who he was. They have created fact sheets about him and we have read lots of books about what he believed.

This half term in maths we are going to be learning about collecting data in tally charts, bar graphs and pictograms. Click on the picture below to learn more and play games on collecting data.





We will also be learning our ten times table.

Practise the facts as much as possible.  Try them out of order and answering quickly without having to work the answers out!


P.E. will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure the children have a named P.E. kit in school in a named bag. We will send kits home at the end of each half term for a wash!


Library will be on Friday. Please remember to bring your book in on this day if you have finished reading it.



This half term we start our phase 6 phonics but we will still be learning to spell the following words:


oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked


We are also learning to read the following words:

oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked, don't, I'm, time, saw, old, house, came, put, about, your, make,could, made, very, by, day, here



We use flash cards to help us read our focus words. We use these at least 3 times a day for around 5 minutes.

To practise our spellings we use a system called "read, look, write, cover, check".
