Year 2


Teachers: Mrs Best and Mrs Burton

Teaching Assistant: Miss Curtis


Welcome to Year 2

In year 2 we like to operate an open door policy. If you have any questions, any member of the Year 2 teaching team will do their best to answer them at any time. It is extremely important to us that communication between home and school is strong as we believe this allows your children to feel happy and safe inn school.


 Important Information

 PE days: Monday and Thursday (please bring your kit on a Monday and leave in school until Friday just in case.)



 Homework is an opportunity to share what is happening in school and in your children's lessons. It is usually set on a Friday and consists of either a piece of maths work or a reading comprehension activity and spellings. Homework must be completed and returned by the following Friday. This is essential in preparation for children moving into Juniors. A spelling test of the learnt spellings will take place every Friday. Children should also be encouraged to read their home-school reading book and hand it in to be changed at least once a week. 


It is very important that your children bring their planners to school everyday. I would appreciate your cooperation in reading these and signing them weekly. Planners are checked and children are reminded to use their planners as a method of communication between home and school as well as to document when they have read.


 In May children will be required to sit KS1 SATs.

This includes;

  • Spelling Test
  • Punctuation and Grammar Test
  • Paper 1 Reading Test
  • Paper 2 Reading Test
  • Mathematics Arithmetic Test
  • Mathematics Reasoning Test

More information regarding the content of the tests will be shared with parents closer to the time.
