Every child, every day, to learn, to laugh, to love and pray.



Welcome to Class 2





Miss Whittaker is your class teacher. We have an amazing team of people to help us in Class 2- Miss Durkin and Miss Woodcock.


Miss Whittaker, Miss Durkin and Miss Woodcock have had a really enjoyable half term with Year 2; the children have been working extremely hard! We are looking forward to a very busy half term ahead, with lots of exciting things to learn about!


Autumn 2 Topics


We are continuing our topic 'The Gunpowder Plot' where we will be focusing on History and Geography.

This half term we will have fun looking at traditional tales with a twist. We begin our half term by reading the story ’Ratpunzel’.  We will practise using commas in a list e.g. Rat’s tail is long, curly and rough. We will also continue to learn our different joins as we begin to join up our handwriting. Please practise handwriting at home, especially any letters which your child struggles to form.


During maths, we are looking closely at multiplication and money. We will learn how to make the correct amount of money to pay for different items. Please practise counting money and making money totals at home. 



 In Science, we will be learning about how to keep fit and healthy.



In RE lessons, we will be learning about good news and the good news Mary received at this time of the year.




Reading books are sent home each night and need to be brought to school everyday. Guided Reading lessons and Phonics  will take place daily at school.


Please continue to listen to your child read each evening.  Talk about the characters and what happens in the story, asking your child to re-tell the story once they have read it to you. What was their favourite part of the story? Why? Ask lots of 'who, what, where, when, why' questions. If you have time, why not sign up to Oxford Owl? There are hundreds of tablet friendly eBooks to read online and it's FREE!
