We Love To Read!

In Year 2, we understand that reading is a vital part of our learning... it also allows us to use our imagination and it is a lot of fun. Remember to read at home each night, in order to earn a Dojo point the following morning. Don't worry if you forget to read, the grown ups at school will read with you! 

Learning at home...

What we are learning...

Our new and exciting topic is called Muck, Mess and Mixtures. Get ready to squelch, squirm and squiggle your way through this exploratory and creative topic. We cannot wait to show you our learning at our Parents Drop In Session on Thursday 11th April. Grownups, please join us from 2pm - 3pm.

Muck Mess and Mixtures - Exciting Home Learning Ideas

Purple Mash Coding and Gooseberry Planet (e-safety)

The Y2 children have been working so hard on their coding skills recently. Don't forget to use your Purple Mash logins at home, you can access coding, games, activities and more! 


You are also able to access Gooseberry Planet at home - our e-safety programme. Again you can access a range of games and activities all based around staying safe online. 


If you have lost any of your logins, please speak to a member of the Y2 team. 

Let's get creative!

Each week we are developing our skills in painting and drawing. We have so far been focussing on the techniques of sketching and stippling. The children have created some wonderful artwork in their sketchbooks. 


The links below will take you to some short videos, which we have looked at to develop our skills. Why not have a go at home! 



A quick reminder!

Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school (t-shirt, hooded or zipper jacket, joggers/shorts, pumps or trainers). Our P.E lessons will take place on Wednesday mornings. Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school, these can be purchased from the school office at a cost of £1. Thanks!
