Year 2

For homework this week, Wilson can choose to complete a story board of the Nativity using one of the following templates or create a different storyboard using their own resources. The children will be given the templates for this homework on Monday should they wish to use a print out from school. Homework to be handed in next Friday 15.12.23.



For 2 Bryon’s homework this week, we would like the children to gather some materials which they can use in their next Forest Garden Session and bring them into school on Tuesday 12th December. They will be making a dream catcher. They can choose to bring their own stick or use one from school. Please can children bring the other materials that they would like to use to make this dream catcher. Below are some examples of how the dream catcher may look.


Many thanks,


Miss Rundle


Costumes for the Christmas Show FRIDAY 8TH DECEMBER


If your child is a narrator, a Christmas child or is bringing in any additional clothing for the Christmas show (such as shorts/tshirts for under their costume) PLEASE BRING IN TOMORROW (8.12.23). Many thanks, your Y2 Team :) 

****Costumes for the Christmas Show****


We are trying to save expense for our families this year and also be more environmentally conscious in reducing the number of Christmas character costumes that need to be bought each year for our Christmas shows. We have a bank of some costumes and one of our grandparents has very kindly offered to make some of our angel costumes. We have asked for children to bring in to school any costumes they already have in for this Wednesday so not to waste those purchases. Once we know how many costumes we have we are hoping that school can provide most or even all of the other costumes needed. If your child is a narrator or a Christmas child they will just wear their own clothes or a Christmas jumper. We will let you know on Friday 24th November if you need to buy anything for your child.


Many Thanks

Year 2 Wilson Class Assembly


The Year 2 Wilson Class Assembly will take place on Wednesday 8th November. We look forward to showing you all of the wonderful work that Wilson Class have been up to this term. It will begin at 2.30pm. Many thanks!

'Forest Garden' Sessions are now on pause for Wilson and will return again later in the year. Rosen will start their sessions next week on Tuesday 17th October.

Forest Garden Session Dates


Forest Garden sessions will take place in four week blocks for one year 2 class. During this time the other 2 classes will be doing PE. Wilson will start Forest School on Tuesday 19th September.


Rosen Forest Garden Sessions: 

Tuesday 17th October

Tuesday 31st October

Tuesday 7th November

Tuesday 14th November



Wilson Forest Garden Sessions: 

Tuesday 19th September

Tuesday 26th September

Tuesday 3rd October

Tuesday 10th October


Children taking part in Forest Garden sessions will need to come into school in their own comfortable clothes ready for an outdoor session on these days not PE kit.  Please ensure they are ready for the weather on the day.  This may mean they need a waterproof coat and wellington boots. Wellington boots and waterproofs can be brought into school in a named carrier bag. Please make sure your child is wearing trainers or other shoes that they can change into after the session when they change out of their wellingtons or other muddy shoes. If your child is taking part in these sessions on a Tuesday, they will not need PE kits in school on a Tuesday.


The classes who are having PE lessons will come into school in PE kits on the above dates as they will be having PE lessons rather than Forest School sessions.


Log ins for Year 2


All of the log ins your child should require for learning at home throughout Year 2 will be stuck into the front of their reading records over the next couple of days. This is just as they were when the children were in Year 1. Please let your child’s class teacher know if you think you may be missing any or if any of your child’s log ins are not working so we can get these sorted for you.

Many thanks,


Your Year 2 Team 


Welcome to Year 2!


What a great start to the year to come back to school in the lovely sunshine! This week the children have been taking part in some settling in activities whilst they get to know the year 2 classrooms and routines.


Our usual timetable of lessons will start next week. Year 2 will have PE twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays. Our first PE session will be on Monday 11th September. Children will need to come to school in their PE kit.


This week, we are gradually giving out reading books to the children. They will receive two reading books per week on their reading day, which they should read a number of times throughout the week at home as part of their homework. Please make a comment in their reading record each week to record their reading sessions at home.


We will be continuing with the reading book level set by the Year 1 teachers for the children until we get to know them over the next few weeks and then we will make some changes to reading book levels if needed around half term.

If you need to contact us, please email us at the Year 2 email address: or you can speak to a member of staff on the door in the mornings and after school.


We look forward to meeting you all.
