Year 2

Year 2-2022/23

Welcome to the Year 2 web page which will be updated throughout the year with information related to our class curriculum along with news, updates and photographs of the exciting things that we have been getting up to. Please also keep an eye on our school's Twitter account @JamesBrindleyPS for regular Tweets and to see how hard we are working and what fun we are having in Year 2.




Spring Term  - 

Our Newsletter for the Spring Term can be found at the top of this page. 


At the beginning of the Spring Term our topic continues to be Geography based as we focus on the Geography of our local area and for the second half of the term we spend time looking at Walkden and how it has changed over the last 100 years. In our Science we will continue with our work on materials from before Christmas and then move onto looking at living things and their habitats. More information regarding our work for this half term can be found in our class newsletter and an overview of our Year 2 curriculum can be found in the 'Curriculum on a Page' document.  


Important Information


* We are continuing to use our Pick and Mix style homework this academic year which will be set termly and will be based on our class topic. All children will be required to complete the activities set on their Pick and Mix at home (ideally 1 per week). Children should share some of their homework with me by sending it via email on Purple Mash. I will then share the work that I have received with the class on our Homework Celebration Day on Thursday 30th March.  Your Pick and Mix for the Autumn Term can be found above. 



* Spellings will be sent home on a Friday and tested the following Friday. Your child's weekly spellings will be matched to their phonic ability and will be based on the phonic sounds that they have most recently learnt in school.  It is crucial in Year 2 that your children learn their spellings in order for them to reach end of year expectations. The list of the words which your child should be able to read and spell by the end of Year 2 can be found in the document 'Year 1 & 2 Common Exception Words'.


* P.E. lessons will be on Tuesday and Thursday. If your child wears earrings they will need to be removed by yourself or them prior to the sessions. Children are unable to participate when wearing earrings or any other kind of jewellery.


* Reading books need to be in school every day. Your child will read on specific days each week both individually and as part of Guided Reading sessions. Please ensure that your child reads at least 4 times at home each week and that this is recorded in their planner. 


* In the documents posted above you will find Year 2 Knowledge Organisers for English, Maths, Topic and Science. These documents set out and explain all of the key vocabulary that will be covered during your child's time in Year 2, we hope that you find them useful. 


We are very much looking forward to working with your child during their time in Year 2. If your ever have an questions and queries, please do not hesitate to ask.
