Our Year 2 teachers are:

Lime Class – Ms Baker

Maple Class – Mrs Hardiman and Mrs Gilmour

Our Teaching Assistants are: Mrs Hunt and Ms Crowther


Daily – Children need to bring a named water bottle into school every day. Children are able to access outside learning regularly so it is important that they always come to school with a waterproof coat. During the summer children should also have a named sunhat.

Wednesday –  Outdoor Learning (Mrs Meakin)

Friday – PE – children to come to school in PE kits and trainers

Friday – Reading books are changed. Spellings.


The Year 2 newsletter is sent out via email every Friday outlining our learning.

Reading: Please read with your child as often as possible, ideally four times a week. Reading books are changed every Friday. This is the only day reading books need to be in school.

Children are given English and maths homework activities to complete every Friday. These can be found in book bags. Curriculum homework is included in the weekly letter and is in the form of a ‘Big Talk’ task.

Our My Happy Mind theme for this half term is ‘Appreciate’. The Appreciate module teaches children to understand why gratitude matters and how we can develop gratitude as a habit. Gratitude is key to wellbeing and resilience and we’re all about making it a habit!
