Year 2

Autumn 1 – 2021

Welcome to Year 2 everyone.

I hope you had a lovely Summer holiday – I know I did!


So here is some information about the class you are about to begin:


  1.    PE is on Tuesday, so always have your PE kit ready for that day, with your t-shirt, shorts and pumps labelled. As the weather gets colder, you might want to substitute the shorts for tracksuit bottoms. Children can wear their cardigans/jumpers as well.
  2.    You need to read your reading book every day, if you read 4 times a week you can earn lots of dojos!
  3.    Spellings will be sent home on a Friday, and tested on Friday, so pupils have one week to learn their spellings.


At the bottom of the page is an overview of all the things that we will be learning this half term.

In English, we are reading the book ‘A River’ by Marc Martin.

We will also be reading a range of book links to this topic.

You will also be developing your phonics, which will help you with your reading, writing and spelling. Here is a website link that can help you:

You also have a Bug Club account, where I have organised a range of books to read. Your log in details are on your Bug Club Sticker in your Reading Log. Here is a website link that can help you:

In Maths, we are focusing on addition and subtraction and below I have put a link to some games which can help you. We are also having a push on developing your understanding of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. This can be practiced on TT Rockstars, I have added a link to that as well:
