Welcome to the Year 2 class page!
In Year 2, we pride ourselves on working hard but also on enjoying ourselves and having fun. Research has shown that cultivating happiness in the classroom is crucial to your child's academic success. There's learning for learning's sake (because that's what we all do at school, right?) and then there's learning for the love of learning. That's where we want our children to be.
The children in Year 2 are lucky enough to be supported by a highly experienced team of class teachers:
- Mrs Harris BA (hons), MA, PGCE
- Mrs Hobbs (Higher Level Teaching Assistant)
- Mrs Coope (Teaching Assistant)
On here, you will be able to find useful information and updates about your child’s learning. Our one BIG ask is that you hear your child read as much as you possibly can: we recommend a minimum of 4 times a week. Don't forget to sign their reading record books too! If you have any questions at all, at any time, please don't hesitate to ask.

Star of the Week
Ollie for outstanding work and effort in Maths.
What kind of toys did our grandparents play with?
Each half-term, the children will investigate a new topic, based around a 'big question' which we will explore thoroughly and aim be able to answer by the end of the half-term.
Our topic this half-term will engage the children in discussion about history, the family of the church, families at home and school as well as themes of sharing, love and kindness.
Dogger by Shirley Hughes
Dogger is the endearing story of how Dave's beloved Dogger was lost and found. Winner of the 1977 Kate Greenaway Medal, Dogger is a timeless classic which, in simple words and detailed pictures, shows the distress the loss of a toy causes a child, as well as the reality of family life.
Living Life to the Full!
Through our new curriculum, we are encouraging our children to live to the full, and not just through their academics. We know that you already support them in the many extra-curricular activities that they do and we love hearing about these so that we can celebrate achievements together!
