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.

Year 2 Times Tables Superstars!
Over the coming months, I will be completing optional assessment of the children on their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. If they would like to come to me and recite their tables at any point, they will receive recognition and a reward.
Star of the Week
Alorah, for brilliant independent work in Maths.
Hall of Fame
In Year 2, we like to celebrate each other's achievements, whatever they are and we have a special 'Hall of Fame' board in the classroom for this very purpose. If your child does anything at all that they're proud of - win a medal, try something new or complete an act of kindness - let us know and they'll join the famous faces in the Hall of Fame!
