Year 2

Miss Hughes

Welcome to Year 2!

Important Year 2 Information

I hope you have had a lovely summer break and are looking forward to coming back to school! Hopefully you are feeling well rested and ready to have an amazing start to the year! I’m looking forward to hearing all of your exciting stories!

Please find all the information about the coming term below and I will update this page throughout the year.

If you need to contact me, please press the ‘contact me’ button and start your message FAO Miss Hughes. Alternatively, contact the office and leave a message and I will get back to you ASAP.


All children have a school reading book. It is best if your child can bring his/her reading book to school everyday, preferably in a book bag to keep it clean and dry. Children can change their reading book as soon as they have finished their book, as long as their reading record has been signed by an adult who has heard them read. I would hope that children are changing their books at least twice a week and we have a motivational scheme in place to encourage reading at home.


Spellings will be given out on Fridays. These words will be tested the following Friday. The spellings follow the recommended spellings in the English National Curriculum. Children are also expected to know how to read and spell common exception words for year 1 & 2. Links to these can be found towards the bottom of the page.


Children in Year 2 have P.E. on Mondays and Wednesdays. We follow the Real PE scheme and children have all been given log-ins so that they can access Real PE at home (see link at the bottom of the page). Details of the correct PE kit can be found elsewhere on the website. Children can leave their kits in school – we will send them home at each holiday period so you can wash them.

What are we learning?

In English…

In our English lessons, we will be exploring the book ‘Harry and the Jaggedy Daggers’. We will be learning how to write a detailed recount of the story. We will be focusing on our punctuation, past tense, conjunctions and expanded noun phrases.

In Maths…

We will start the year of by looking at numbers to 100. This will start by looking at place value and move onto addition and subtraction. The children will learn a variety of methods to add and subtract 2-digit numbers. Alongside this, we will be working hard to develop our fluency of 2x, 5x & 10x tables.

In Science…

Our unit this term is ‘Materials’. The children will be learning about different materials and their uses. They will investigate the suitability of why certain materials are used for specific items and begin to understand the process of recycling.

In RE…

 The Bible. Why is it such a special book?

The children will be learning more about the Bible, about its contents, its presentation and its importance to Christians. We will look at holy books from other faiths including  Christianity and their significance in the lives of believers.

In Topic…

Our topic this term is ‘Can Pirates Sail the Seven Seas?’ We will be learning about the Seven Continents and the Five Oceans.
