Welcome to Year 2


This half term the children will be continuing their topic linked to The Lighthouse Keeper, where they will design and make their own picnic as part of their challenge.


The KS1 SATs papers will be completed by the children throughout the week commencing 15th May. It is important that your child attends school during this week to complete the papers.
Before this date, the children will be completing some practice papers to help reassure them that they have nothing to worry about.


The children will be recapping addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Please help your child to master their 2s, 5s and 10 times tables, so that they can quickly recall these facts to complete problems.

Physical Education 

The children will be outside for PE this half term. Please ensure that they have the correct outdoor kit and trainers every Tuesday.


The children will consolidate the writing skills they have learned this year, through letter writing, instructional writing and writing evaluations.


The science learning will be linked to plants, where the children will look at different parts of a plant, what plants need to grow and how they germinate. They will grow some herbs, which they will use within the next topic about food.

Please ensure your child reads every day at home, this will help to support them with both their reading and writing in school.


Thank you for all your support.
