Year 2 (2LM & 2LB)

Homework challenge

Please encourage your child to be creative with our topic theme. They might want to research a      particular minibeast or plant and present the   information to their friends. They could produce any form of artwork inspired by the theme or bring in items to show that they can confidently talk about.


Our Tuesday P.E. sessions we be dance based this term. Please make sure your child has a kit in school which is labelled. If your child wears errings you must provide plasters to cover them or the children must be able to remove them on their own.

Reading & Spellings

There is much more of an emphasis on comprehension now in Year 2. Can your child find the answers to your questions using the text? Refer to our reading dogs to help with understanding these skills, e.g. Retrieval Rex, Izzy Infer and Eddy Explain. Please ask if you would like more information about this.

Minibeast Madness!

Welcome back to the second half of the Summer Term. Last half term your children completed a number of assessments and we are proud to say they worked extremely hard and tried their best. We hope you have all managed to have a good break ready for one last exciting half term in preparation for Year 3.

This term we will be doing lots of Science, Art and Literacy around minibeasts and plants. We will start by looking at the book ‘Yucky Worms’ by Vivian French. The children will learn how to create a picture of a worm in the style of the famous artist Kandinsky. Then we will hunt for worms and make our own    wormeries and learn worm facts to help us write a factfile all about them.

We will then move onto learning about snails by    observing and investigating snails in their habitats. We will write descriptive snail trail stories based on their behaviour. Each class will hold a snail race so get thinking of some interesting names for our           competitors.

A special maths focus this term is learning to tell the time. We are saying quarter past and to the hour and beginning to look at 5 mins intervals. Please take every opportunity to reinforce this learning at home. Remember to login to MyMaths to complete the homework activities. This work will help prepare your child for moving to Year 3.


As the weather gets warmer please bring hats and a small suncream as we will be outdoors more. Your child will always have access to drinking water but named water bottles are useful for extra drinks throughout the day.
