Year 2

Week 6


Another week complete and lots of learning has taken place! We started our instruction unit and started to recognise the difference between questions, commands and statements. We will continue with this unit next week. In maths we worked a lot on estimating and placing numbers on a number line. Next week we will be focusing on mental addition and subtraction with numbers up to 20.



Maths: page 13 on number lines


English: the next reading comprehension









Please continue reading your books and ensure reading records and books are with your child every day should anyone want to read with them.


Thank you very much for your shoe boxes this week. please keep them coming, we hope to begin our houses next week and need as many as we can!


Thank you and have a lovely weekend :) 

Week 5


Wow I can't believe how far into Year 2 we already are! We have worked very hard this week on counting forwards and backwards on a hundred square and comparing/ordering numbers. We have also finished our recount topic.


Next week we will be continuing to compare and order different amounts. We will also be starting our topic on instructions.



Maths: page 17.


English: I would like the children to write a short recount of day in their weekend. They should use adverbs of time (first, next, then etc.), conjunctions (and, but, because etc) and commas if they are writing a list. The challenge can be to use some adjectives (fluffy dog).









Have a great weekend!

Week 4


Another busy week in Year 2! We have worked very hard this week on place value, thinking about tens and ones and how we can represent them in different ways. We have also started our recount topic using the book 'Toby and the Great Fire of London'.


Next week we will be moving on counting on and back in ones and tens from any 2 digit number. This can be practiced on a hundred square if you would like. We will continue with our recount writing too.



Maths: page 15 - encourage children to draw the tens and ones like in class if they're stuck.


English: the next reading comprehension.









Have a lovely weekend!

Week 3

Well what a week we have had! It has been busy and a little bit crazy but we managed to keep things as normal as possible for the children. They have done very well even with everything going on. I also wanted to say thank you so much for the flowers given to me after my fall last weekend, it was very kind.


Next week

Next week we will be looking more at place value with tens and ones. In English, we will be starting our topic on recounts linked to the Great Fire of London. 



We will also be voting for councils next week so if the children want to be part of any of the below, they can come in next week prepared to say why.

- Sports council

- School council

- Ethos council



Maths links to place value - page 7.


English - we have written poems this week around a picture of London in the fire. Please could the children use a picture either from the internet or a book to write a descriptive poem about in their green books.









Please make sure you're reading too!


Have a fantastic weekend!

Week Two


This week we have been working on our writing skills. We have begun cursive handwriting practice and focusing on what is included in a sentence. We have also worked on predicting events and retelling stories. In Maths we have continued work on Fluency to 20. Next week we will be working on vocabulary for poetry about the Great Fire of London in English and will continue looking at numbers to 20 and place value in Maths.


Homework this week

Maths - please could your child complete the Year 1 test that is on pages 2-5 of the green CGP book. 


English - please could your child complete the first reading comprehension in the CGP book.


Spellings -






Reading - most children have taken home 2 new reading books, those who haven't may not have read twice yet or at all or did not bring their books into school today.


As requested at the meet the teacher meeting, I have uploaded a timetable that states what we will be doing each week. This may alter depending on events in the school calendar or work that needs to be completed.


Have a lovely weekend!

Timetable for Year 2

Welcome to Year Two!


It has been an exciting and busy first three days but the children have settled in very well 


We have been looking at the illustrator author Oliver Jeffers in the first few days but will begin our writing skills and topics next week. In maths we have started looking at fluency to 20, which we will continue into next week. We will begin our normal timetable next week so the only homework being set this week is reading (5 times a week and read twice - unless reading level purple and above) and spellings. 









Next week will be our meet the teacher meeting at 9am Friday morning. Key information will be shared with you about Year Two.


Have a lovely weekend!
