Homework Expectations


In Year 2, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary and you should use it to record which page of their book they are up to. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Tuesday and must be back in school the following Monday. At the beginning of each half term, children will receive a list of spellings, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class the following Friday.


P.E. and Forest School


Year 2 will have Multi-skills every Monday and P.E. on Wednesdays.  Children will need to wear their P.E. kit to school every Monday and Wednesday.  Kit includes: school P.E. t-shirt, school jumper/cardigan, tracksuit bottoms or shorts and trainers. 


For Forest School sessions, the children should come to school in their Forest School clothes (occasional Wednesdays).  Forest School clothes include: normal school t-shirt & jumper/cardigan, tracksuit bottoms or leggings, a coat and old trainers or wellies. 

Useful websites



Year 2 have had a really great trip to Weston-Super-Mare.  The photos speak for themselves, so enjoy seeing the pure joy on their faces (even when the sand was blowing all around them!). They were so well behaved too and made us all very proud. laugh

Year 2 have enjoyed trying some edible seaweed today (Donegal Dulse).  We're very proud to say that they all tried it, so take a look at their reactions laugh

Year 2 DT

We have worked hard to create appealing and healthy fruit salads for younger children in our DT lessons this half term.  See what you think of our efforts.  Do the end results match the original design idea? We think they are great! laugh

Year 2 have been very busy in the school garden, preparing the beds for planting.  We have cleared the area of weeds, then mixed some compost with the existing soil.  After that, the children have planted a variety of fruits and vegetables including: potatoes, onions, beans, lettuce, cucumbers, courgettes, squash, strawberries, tomatoes and flowers to attract the bees and other insects.  Our next task will be to tidy up the herb planters.


Take a look at the photos laugh

Year 2 visited the local allotments as part of their topic about plants.  Have a look at the photographs laugh

Special Visitors to Year 2

As part of our Science work about Animals including Humans, Henry has brought his bearded dragon in to tell the children all about them, what they eat and how to look after them.  This week he has brought in his giant African snails as we are learning about Africa. Thank you Henry laugh 


Here are some photos!

The children were able to hold a baby one - very slimy!
