Termly Learning Focus


Dear Parents and Carers,

We cannot wait for you all to settle into Year 2 and see how much you grow. We hope you are refreshed, raring to go and ready for a fun and exciting year ahead.

This term we will be learning many new things:

In Literacy we are exploring Little Red Reading Hood and using what we learn from the authors to write our own version of this story. In maths we are working hard at Place Value and learning how to make, record and write numbers to 100. We will also be partitioning numbers into tens and ones.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:



Art/Design Technology




Living Things and Their Habitats

Guy Fawkes and The Gunpowder Plot

Making couscous

IT around us


Real PE



How can you help your child at home? This term in Design and Technology we will be designing and making our own couscous. In lessons, we will be practice chopping vegetables and salad. It would be great if children could practice their chopping skills at home too.

Daily reading at home remains an important part of your child’s learning and is essential if your child is to progress across the curriculum. Reading journals must be in school every day so adults can use them to record when they read with the children. Children are required to complete the child’s comments section.

This year your child will come home with a library book, please enjoy it, and talk about it with your child.

Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week.

P.E will take place on a Wednesday this term for both classes. Please note these days may change but you will be given notice.

Children are required to come to school each Wednesday in their PE kit. This consists of a pair of trainers/plimsolls, a different white t-shirt other than their school t-shirt, dark coloured shorts/jogging bottoms and a jumper. Children with long hair will be expected to tie it up for PE due to health and safety reasons and children with earrings should ensure that they are removed on PE days.
