Year 2 2019 - 2020

Mrs Dunn

Welcome to Year 2!

We have had a brilliant start and the children are all settling in wonderfully. We hope that your child will have a very happy and rewarding time in Year 2.

Your class teachers this year are Mrs Dunn and Mrs Willis

Check out the link above that says "School Blogs" - We try to add information on there to keep you updated about some of the exciting things we do in Year 2.


Homework will be set every Friday with the expectation that it is returned on a Wednesday. Your child will recieve one piece of Maths and English per week which will be from the SATS revision guides. The pages that need completing each week will be highlighted in the corner. 



In Year 2 your child will be sent home with a set of spellings. These spellings are to practise reading and writing. Once your child is able to read and write these words, a tick is to be drawn on the back of the word. The word needs to be ticked on 3 seperate occasions in order to get a new set of spellings. The spellings are a range of common exception words that the children need to spell by the end of Year 2 and words with spelling patterns, for example 'ph' and 'wr'. 



In Year 2 reading at home is a crucial part. Your child will be listened to at school weekly, but to ensure good progress reading at home plays a big part in this. If you have listened to your child read, this can be communicated through their planner. Reading at home can be as little as 5-10 minutes a day. 

Timestables and Maths

In Year 2 there will be a focus on the 2, 3, 5 and 10 timestable. This includes knowing them in an order (bronze) and at random (silver), and eventually moving on to divisions (How many 2s are in 20 - gold). In Maths this year there will be a big focus on adding 1 digit numbers to 2 digit and 2 digit numbers together using methods such as column.
