Year 2, Week 2


Thank you for the donations to our class gardens, as you can see we have been busy preparing the soil and planning where to put the plants.  The children have loved taking ownership of these gardens and are looking forward to watching them bloom. I was also very pleased with the care they took, when rehoming any insects they found. We still have the lovely flowerbed outside our classroom to tend to so if you are able to provide any perennials it would be very much appreciated.



We continue to develop our fluency to 20 and have estimated where numbers might go along a number line.


In PE we have started to develop our dodging, passing and receiving skills in netball and football.  I have been very impressed with everyone’s sportsmanship.

Home learning














Three study ladder activities have been set. I realise that you all have the usernames and passwords from last year but your child has been given a copy to take home with them this evening.


Please read with your child over the weekend and sign their reading records.


Y2 Week 1

We have had a lot of fun with our learning this week. During RE we have looked at how our mums ae like Mary, when she protects, cares and comforts us. We really enjoyed celebrating Marys birthday.

In Maths, we have been using our number bonds and ordering skills to place missing numbers along blank  or partially completed number lines.

In English we have focused on our handwriting as well as adding full stops, capital letters and adjective to our sentences.













Reading – everyone has been given a reading record and book this week. Please encourage our child to read daily and sign their record at least once. All reading records and books need to be in next Monday so that readers can be heard and reading days added to records.


Please recap phase 4 using the following games; alien escape, odd and bob, sentence substitution and word pairs.

Maths –

Using hit the button, please practise your number bonds to 20 and doubling and halving from 10  20.

Date for your diary – Meet the teacher on 15th September at 2.30pm.

Have a restful weekend

Welcome to Y2

Welcome to Year 2 and our special Year of Growth! It has been wonderful getting to know the children today and seeing how happy they were to see each other again.  I have also been very impressed with their learning and behaviour. Well done Year 2, you are proving to be very good role models for the younger classes.

Here is some information about P.E. reading and Home Learning.


PE days will be Tuesday and Wednesday this half term – please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kits on these days. Next week Wednesday is party day for the whole school (see newsletter) please ensure your child is wearing clothes and trainers suitable for football.


Reading books will be sent home next Tuesday – please return any reading books and records that you have at home.

Home Learning

Home learning will be set every Friday and due in the following Wednesday unless you are told otherwise.

Have a restful weekend

PE snakes and ladder fun

Good Morning,

I hope you are all well. I thought you might like to try this PE version of snakes and ladders with your family instead of (or in addition to – if you’re feeling super fit!) joining Joe Wicks this morning. There are many different challenges included. All you need is a dice, appropriate clothing, water and a safe space. Enjoy and send me some pictures of you having fun if possible.

Love Miss Pringle
