Year 2 2022 - 2023


2W: Miss Watts and Mrs Snow 2K: Miss Kelly and Mrs Walmsley


Welcome to our Year 2 class page.

Below is an overview of some of the exciting topics we will be covering during the summer term and some general information about our year group.

In English, we will be reading Fantastic Mr Fox and creating some exciting pieces of writing. In maths, we will be learning about fractions and how to tell the time. As the warmer weather approaches, we can’t wait to do some bulb planting as we learn about plants in science. Our journey through Kenya continues in geography as we start to explore Kenya’s National Parks and the amazing wildlife that is found there. Later in the summer term, we are going to look closer to home as we study Liverpool and some of its fascinating history. 

In our Come and See (R.E.) work, we will be thinking about how Christians spread God’s Word through their actions, how we can work and play with others and how our world is a treasure from God. We will also be leaning about Islam as part of our work on other faiths.

General Information

P.E. days are Tuesday and a Wednesday. Children come to school dressed in their school PE kit. After May half term, year 2 will begin swimming lessons. More details will follow nearer the time.

Spellings and homework

Reading books are sent out on a Thursday and we ask if they can be returned on Monday.
A list of spellings for the children to practice is also sent home on a Thursday and the children will complete a short spell check on Tuesday.
Online homework: the children have access to our Online homework portals: Oxford Reading Buddy, Numbots and Times Table Rock Stars. The children should be accessing them at least once a week. Their login details are in the inside covers of their reading records.

Additional information

Please ensure that children have a water bottle in school each day. We encourage them to take their bottles home each afternoon so they can be washed.
In KS1, there is fresh fruit available for all children at breaktime.
We ask that all coats and jumpers are clearly labelled with the children’s names.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.

Best wishes,
Miss Kelly and Miss Watts
