In Class 2 we are a mixed Year 2 and Year 3 class.

Please be aware that due to the nature of involving children in their learning, these themes could change.

For more information on what is happening in our class this year, check out the curriculum page where you will see a link to  ‘Class 2 Curriculum Overview.’ 

In Year 2 children are assessed in line with statutory assessment tests (SATs).  This takes place in the summer term. Click on the link below to open a PowerPoint which goes through what you need to know about SATs. 



There are no galleries in this group.



Class Information 

PE will take place on Monday and Friday afternoons with Mrs Fawcett.

Please make sure your child has trainers, tracksuit bottoms (or shorts), a t-shirt and a sweatshirt for PE.

PE kits can be left in school.

Forest School and Computing will take place on alternate Wednesdays. All children need to come dressed in their school uniform and change into their forest school kits after lunch.  


Homework in Class two consists of spellings, reading and a piece of numeracy work.

MyMaths homework is readily available for the children to complete in their own time. Your child will have an individual log-in and password to access the online tasks. If your child experiences any difficulties with the maths homework or the website please do not hesitate to contact me.

As well as MyMaths, the children will need to learn their multiplication tables. This is a skill they can use in all types of Mathematics; including telling the time, doubling and fractions. They will be tested using Froggy Maths sheets on a Monday with Mrs B.

Children will receive spellings to learn weekly. These are in accordance with the school phonics scheme. The homework will prepare the children for a spelling test the following week. Children are asked to apply the spellings they are learning and create interesting sentences. Alternatively, they can practise their spellings on Spell Shed. 

We also encourage children to read at home independently, and with an adult, as frequently as possible. The children have a ‘home link book’ to track their reading and this book can also be used as a communication tool between home and school should you have any concerns or questions.

Sometimes, I will set a piece of optional, topic homework for the children to complete to share with the class. 

If you would like to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.
