Year 2



Welcome to Year 2


We are very excited to welcome you to our Year 2 page. In Year 2, we continue to encourage pupils to develop a love of learning and a zest for life. We want our pupils to experience a rich, broad and stimulating curriculum, and they are encouraged to work hard and enjoy their learning. Please browse our page to find out what we will have in store for them over the next year.


The Year 2 Team


Our Year 2 class teacher is Miss Simpson and our fabulous learning support assistants are Mrs Peet and Miss Walker. This year, we are also very lucky to have a graduate teacher, Miss Derbyshire working with us. The Year 2 team will work with our Y2 children, enabling them to make the best possible progress throughout their learning journey.

Home Time


In order to support your child's learning and development at home, we do expect that you are able to guide them in completing some weekly home learning:


Weekly Homework
• Reading x 5 times per week (10-15 minutes). If your child brings home a reading comprehension as this is a big focus in Y2, please bear in mind that we only expect the same amount of time to be spent on this. Therefore your child may only answer 1-2 questions in one sitting.


Occasional Homework
Tapestry challenge - Sometimes we will set a homework task linked to a topic. This may be to research something, to bring something in etc. but will be only once every half term.


Choice Homework

  • Mathletics / IXL (Children get a certificate for 1000 points per week)
  • Spelling Shed
  • Maths Passports – practise the skills to develop a rapid recall of facts


What can parents can do to help?


  • ​Keep up-to-date with your child's learning via Tapestry.  Please feel free to 'like' and share comments in order to celebrate your child's ongoing achievements. You could also upload pictures or videos from home to share their learning experiences. 
  • Read books with your child and talk about the story, the poems or the information in them.  Explore which parts of the book they enjoyed the most and why?
  • Allow your child to read at their own pace and encourage them to re-read their favourite stories.  Regularly sign their reading records.
  • Find lots of opportunities to write together - make lists before you go shopping and write letters / texts to friends and family.  Help them to make their own books, posters or labels for things in their own bedroom.
  • Help your child to count forwards and backwards from different numbers and help them to recite their x2, x5 and x10 tables.
  • Use Mathletics to recall number facts and consolidate mathematical concepts that have been taught in school.




Our P.E. lessons will usually take place every Tuesday and Thursday. Please can you ensure that your child has their P.E. kits in school every day? Also, if your child wears earrings, please can these be removed on P.E. days? Alternatively you may wish to send plasters into school to cover their stud earrings (Please be advised that school cannot supply these).
