Year 2

Welcome to Year Two


Summer 2022


This summer half term, Year Two will be busy exploring our new History topic 'Speak Up'. Through this topic, they will learn about prolific women in history who spoke up for the rights of women such as Rosa Parks (who spoke up for Black peoples' right to be treated fairly and equally), Emily Davidson (who spoke up for womens' right to vote) and finally Malala Yousafzai (who spoke up for girls' right to be educated). They will explore what they feel passionate about and what they would like to speak up about. They will learn that you are never too small to speak up  make  a change.


Please take note of the following reminders:



Please ensure your child is now wearing their winter uniform. Summer uniforms are no longer permitted during the cold winter months. Children must also bring a warm coat (labelled with name) with them to school every day. 



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,

The Year 2 Team (Miss. McGillycuddy, Miss. Wright, Mrs. Tyrell and Mrs. Ash)
