Year 2


Welcome to Year 2!




Teacher: Mrs Paterson


Teaching Assistant: Mrs Bull


In Year 2 we like to keep busy and work hard while also enjoying our learning. We are focusing on becoming more independent both in and out of the classroom. This will allow us to take ownership of our learning and development. 


Year 2 Class Saint

St. Francis of Assisi


Lord make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy

O divine master grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled as to console
to be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And in dying that we are born to eternal life.





Reading is very important to us in Year 2. 

Reading books need to be in school everyday and the children need to put them in the reading boxes in the classroom. The children can change their books independently when they are completed. They then record it on a sheet to show us how regularly they are changing their books.


Reading is done best in partnership with parents as learning at home is as vital as in school. We would ask that you listen to your child read as regularly as possible. Please remember to write a comment and sign the reading diary. It is lovely when the children read their own books from home or the library and these can also be recorded in the reading diary.


Your child will read with their teacher/teaching assistant as part of a group once a week.

When they are not reading with their teacher, they will be taking part in various reading activities such as: writing a character description; finding definitions in the dictionary; writing predictions about what will happen in a story; writing a blurb; reading about a current topic or finding information in an Atlas.




P.E sessions will be on Thursday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor).

Please ensure everything is labelled.

Children can wear trainers for P.E

During cold weather, the children can wear tracksuit bottoms.

Girls wearing tights during the winter months will need to bring in some socks.

Long hair needs to be tied up.



Homework will be sent home every Friday. This will be either an English, Maths or Topic activity.

We will also send weekly spellings home on a Friday.

Times tables will also be learnt this term.

By the end of Year 2 the children need to know their 2, 5, 10, 3, 11 and 4 times tables by heart and solve multiplication and division equations.

The Year 2 Curriculum overview can be found under the 'Curriculum tab' on the school website.
