Our Cornerstones topic for Autumn Term 2 is 'Movers and Shakers'. This project teaches children about historically significant people who have had a major impact on the world. They will learn to use timelines, stories and historical sources to find out about the people featured and use historical models to explore their significance.

Our Cornerstones topic for Autumn Term 1 was 'Wriggle and Crawl'. The children observed the lifecycle of a butterfly, researched all about the honey bee and independently completed a report about them, completed a mini beast hunt to see what they could find on the school grounds, along with many other activities. Keep your eye on the gallery - pictures to follow soon. 


Maths with ParentsMaths with Parents 

The Maths with Parents programme is not only perfectly in line with Maths lessons in school but it is a really easy programme to follow each week. The initial registration is the only part that is a little bit complicated (some pupils were registered last year, others were not).

Spellings (updated 22/10/20)

All children (who were in school) have been retested on the Y1 words and brought them home on Monday.  Please practise the words they do not know over the half term. If your child knows all the Y1 words please practise the Y2 words as some children will be tested on these once we are back at school. 

Year 1 Common Exception Words

Year 2 Common Exception Words


During the 2nd part of the Autumn Term, the children will be completing a phonics screen. They are working so hard on their phonemes and word reading in school. In the password protected homework section above you will find many speed sound lessons for your child to practise their sounds. These will be updated each week. 


Read Write Inc. Phonics: Blue Set 6 Storybook 4 King Of The BirdsEvery Monday the children will bring home the previous week's phonics book. It is a book they are familiar with so gives them the opportunity to show the skills they have been learning throughout the week. Please read the book each night and return to school on a Friday. 


There are plenty of simple ways you can help your child with English in Year 2.
