Year 2 (2LM & 2LB)

Welcome back!

We hope you have all enjoyed a super summer together and are now ready for the start of an exciting new term.

Autumn challenge

Each term we are introducing a class challenge . This term we are asking the children to get creative at home with journeys or feel inspired by our book. This could be a map, a picture, a diary from the summer or information about places they have visited. Perhaps you could try reading other books by Jill Murphy.


Our P.E. sessions are on Tuesdays this half term. Please make sure your child has a kit in school which is labelled. Children must remove ear-rings for safety. Leaving them at home on PE day would prevent any from accidentally getting lost.


We will be reinforcing basic number recognition, place value, addition and subtraction skills this term. Why not get your child to practise writing numbers to 50 correctly?
Log ins for Mathletics will be coming soon, then you can get involved online.
Have fun practising and learning our Dovecote times tables songs on our website.

Happy, Healthy Me!

Our theme this half term is based on getting to know more about ourselves and each other and where we live. We will listen to, read and retell a range of stories which are set in everyday situations. ‘On the Way Home’ by Jill Murphy is our book of the term. Your child will learn to retell the story and then write their own version, full of new and interesting characters.

In Science we will be finding out how we can stay fit and healthy and learning about what animals including humans need to grow and survive. In addition to basic maths skills your child will learn how to measure accurately in centimetres and compare measurements such as height, shoe size and hand spans. Our Geography work will focus on a field trip to the Flower Park. We will use compasses and fol-low and make our own maps. Once back at school there will be a chance for everybody to express their opinions on their local park.
