Year 2 2019 - 2020

Mr Armstrong

Mrs Brady

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back to school and an exciting new school year. This year the children in Year 2 will be taught by Mr Armstrong. Ms Mahoney, Mrs Rudkin, Mrs Trigg and Mrs Redmore will also be working within the class to support the children throughout the week. 

We hope you all had a fantastic break and are ready for a busy term, full of exciting and challenging activities. This half-term we will be finding out about the Gunpowder plot and then asking the question:

How are fireworks used in different cultural celebrations?

For more information about what we are learning across the curriculum please see our termly curriculum newsletters.

Our class page will be updated throughout the year for information about what we are doing in school, photos of activities (in the gallery tab above) and useful links. You will also see other tabs at the top of this page which will guide you to the relevant areas. This will also be the place where you will find information about the week's homework.

End of day collection

If your child is to be collected by anybody different to their usual parent/carer, please pass a message to a member of staff on the door, or write a note in their reading journal.


Please ensure your child is dressed smartly and appropriately. Information about school uniform can be found under the parents' tab on the website. Also, please make sure all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child's name.


PE kits need to be brought in on Monday and kept in school for the whole week, they will then be brought home on Friday. Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child's name. Your child will need a white t-shirt, green shorts and trainers for warm weather or indoor PE and a tracksuit to wear outdoors in the colder weather. Currently we will be doing PE on a Monday and Wedneday.


Homework will be given out every 2 weeks on a Monday and will be due in on the following Monday. This will be one piece of either Maths, Literacy, Science, Topic or RE in their red homework books. For the second week, the children will be asked to concentrate on spellings/phonics and they may also be given a practical maths or a MyMaths task accessible online.

Reading Journals

Please use the reading journals to comment on your child’s reading throughout the year. For each entry please write the date, title of the book and a short comment about how well they did.  Please read with your child as often as you can but at least 4 times per week. Your child should bring home a reading book from school each day.  You may also use the book to write messages to us. We may also use it to write messages when we cannot speak to you in person.


If you have any queries, or wish to discuss a matter, please do not hesitate to contact one of us.
