Year 2 Newsletter

Welcome Back

Year 2 would like to welcome all the children back after the summer holidays and into their new year 2 classes. The classrooms are looking amazing and are ready for the children to take part in some super learning opportunities.


This half term Year 2 will be looking at Samuel Pepys as part of the RESPECT curriculum. Samuel Pepys is known for his diaries that tell us first-hand accounts of the Great Fire of London and The Great Plague. We also can’t wait to complete our REPECT missions along-side our Samuel Pepys focus. In Maths we will be working with numbers up to 100 including, addition, subtraction, multiplication and place value.  

Home learning

To help support your child at home, we encourage parents to read with their child daily! Support with homework where possible would help enable your child to progress further throughout the year. Please take a look at our fantastic homework menus which you can find on the school website.
