Welcome to Year Two's class page

Autumn 1


Hello Year 2 and welcome back to a new school year. We hope you had a lovely summer and are ready for a fun filled year of learning! We have lots of exciting things planned for you starting with our first topic 'Chunguza Kenya' (Explore Kenya).


Please take note of the following reminders:


Homework will be uploaded to Teams every Tuesday. It will contain three days worth of English and Maths task linked to our daily learning that should be completed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening. If you cannot complete the homework on the set nights then feel free to move things around to suit your child's needs.  Please remember to mark your homework before you submit it. If you get stuck at home, please talk to us and we will help you to find a solution.



Your child will receive two reading books weekly (Phonics and Colour book). Please continue to read and share books with your child on a daily basis. We expect reading to be completed every day and recorded in their Red Reading Record



We would like all children to bring in a water bottle each day. As stated on the school website in the healthy schools section, the children can also bring in a healthy snack from home (a healthy snack is a piece of fruit or vegetables or salad or plain breadsticks, plain rice cakes or plain popcorn.) We would politely ask that you do not send your child in with any snack other than those listed.



We will be doing PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child comes into school dressed in their PE kits.


Personal belongings

Please make sure you have written your names on your jumpers, coats, water bottles, sandwich boxes and snack pots.


All the best,
