Welcome to Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 and we hope you had an enjoyable summer holiday. This term’s topic will be ‘From A to B’. We will be learning about different types of transport and the ways in which people travel in the past, present and future

During the first term in English we will be studying the traditional tale of ‘Paddington Bear’ and learning to read and write our own versions. We will practise handwriting daily, using the cursive style.



Maths will focus on number order, place value and the four operations. We will learn to use new multiplication and division skills, alongside developing our times tables. This year, we will focus on the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.

Homework expectations this year include reading at least three times per week, completing a weekly spelling sheet and a home learning task, which may have an English, Maths or creative focus. Please can we remind you, as Year 2 is a SATs year, we feel it is very important to complete the homework task with your child. Every bit of practise will really make the difference!

PE this term will be on a Tuesday for 2RB and on a Thursday 2KT. Please make sure your child has their PE kit and trainers/plimsoles in school on this day.

This term’s Family Homework challenge is to create a futuristic mode of transport and the winner will receive a £20 Smyths Toy voucher. Please ask your child’s class teacher for more details.
