Year 2

A very warm welcome from Miss Emily Davey

Welcome to Year 2! The children are now the oldest in the ‘Infants’ and this year they will develop their leadership skills and learn to be role models for the younger children in our school. They will continue to learn through exploration and discovery, taking more ownership of their learning and depth of challenge.

I look forward to working with parents to help the children to achieve their full potential in all areas.





Each child will have a Home Reading Record Book. Your child will be heard read at least once a week on a specified day in a guided reading group. They will take one reading book home to support their learning, plus two free-choice books for you to share and read to them. Please remember to sign the Reading Record Book and add any comments.


Children will be given weekly spellings to practice at home.


Children will continue to use the lead in stroke and develop to their joined-up writing. Children will develop even more positive attitudes towards and build up stamina for writing longer pieces.


There are eight areas of study: number and place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, properties of shapes, position and direction, and statistics.

Children in Year 2 need to be confident with number bonds to 10 and 20, and to recognise the position of the first 100 numbers on a hundred square. They should also be able to visualise the 100 square in their heads. Children will be encouraged to reason and articulate how they arrived at an answer or solved a problem. Mental maths should be practised daily.

Curriculum Overview

Home Learning

  • Home Learning is set on Friday.


P.E takes place on a Monday and Friday. Please ensure full PE kit is in school on these days. Girls who have pierced earrings must have them removed on the day or covered up during the lesson for health and safety reasons. It is not hygienic for girls to do PE in tights, so please make sure they have an extra pair of socks in their kit. On dry winter days children will do P.E. outdoors and they can wear a tracksuit bottom.

Swimming sessions take place on Wednesdays in the summer term.
