Snapshots of our learning!

Here are some snapshots of the fantastic learning we have been doing in Year 2.

We have been very busy in Year 2 so we can't list everything we've done! However, some of our top highlights from Year 2 so far are;

  • Visiting the London Transport Museum to end our 'From A to B' topic.
  • Dressing up as a significant person from the past for our 'People of the Past' entry point!
  • Learning about the Great Fire of London in English.
  • Gymnastic sessions with our fantastic coach Sam!
  • Our entry point to our 'The Circus is coming to Town' topic- we watched Cirque Du Soleil and had popcorn in the interval.
  • Year 2's inter-class competition at benchball, which 2M won!
  • Learning to be superhero lifesavers and give CPR to our teddy bears as a hook for our new topic, A day in the life of!


These are only a few pictures of the amazing learning we do everyday in Year 2! Ask us to tell you about what we learnt at school today.

A day in the life of...


Our topic this half-term in Year 2 is A day in the life of.

It can be fun to imagine what we want to do when we grow up. The world is full of lots of different and exciting jobs. Even as children, we have lots of hobbies and interests that we enjoy.

We will be learning about all of the different jobs around the world, and the different people that do them, as well as why different jobs are important. We will also be thinking about the important jobs that children do, such as being a student at school or a member of a football team!

We are super lucky that some of the grown-ups that look after us are coming in to teach us about their jobs and tell us what they do everyday.

Ask us about what we are learning about jobs and hobbies.


Please find below the homework for this half term. Children should choose one homework to complete each week and hand in their homework books on a Thursday. Homework will then be marked and returned on Monday.

Reading records must be bought to school daily, whether they have read or not. This allows us to record any comments from our guided reading or 1:1 reading sessions. In Year 2, children are asked to change their own reading books when they first come into school.

Bug Club

Purple Mash

Weekly spellings

Children will be sent home with new spellings every Friday. They will then have the weekend to practice them, and will be tested on a Monday morning. Spellings will link to an area of our learning in class.


Children must have PE kits in school during term time. We will send PE kits home at half term for them to be washed. 

Please remember that children must have shorts, jogging bottoms, trainers, plimsoles and a school PE top. Girls will need a pair of socks if they are wearing tights. No PE kit means the children can't take part in PE.

Our PE days are;

2D- Tuesday and Thursday

2M- Monday.

Forest Schools

This half term, children in 2M (Monday) and 2SW (Friday) are lucky to have forest schools! Please send children in with wellington boots and a warm coat. Children can also bring in a change of clothes, please make sure these are waterproof as they will go out in all weathers!

Year 2 Curriculum Targets.

In Year 2, your child will be working towards the band 2 targets above. However, it is also important to consolidate their learning from the band 1 targets (see below) too.
