Year 2

Design and Technology in Summer 1

Year 2 will soon be starting an exciting new FLCC challenge - How do I make my structure more stable? We will be examining and exploring different picture frames. We will be building up to making a stand for our own frames. In preparation for this, we are asking parents to send your child to school with a picture frame to share with the class on the week beginning 18.04.22. The picture frame will be returned to you the following week. We very much appreciate your support on this.


Whole Class Guided Reading

After the Easter break, Year 2 will be moving to whole class guided reading lessons. We will be reading The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl. We are asking parents to purchase this book individually for your child in preparation for this. 


A copy of the book is linked below.

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me (Amazon)

The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me (Waterstones)



If your child has a pupil premium passport we will provide your child with a copy of the class text free of charge. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you do not receive a grant but will be unable to provide the book due to financial reasons.



Why do we use Numbots? Please read here to find out more about Numbots.  The programme helps children develop a secure understanding of numbers bonds using multiple representations. This consolidates learning completed in school. Children should aim to do Numbots every week for at least 10 minutes. We would like to thank you for all the support at home. 


Learning from home for those self-isolating

If your child is self-isolating because they have tested positive for COVID, they should join our hybrid-lessons (unless they are too unwell). Please see this webpage for more details:



Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum 

Home learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. Our routines reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:


  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily. Teachers will have a look at these to check regular reading is taking place at home.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to Year Group expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. Log on to Timestable Rockstars!
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.


You will be able to see your child’s progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home at least once during every term as well as at parent consultation meetings.

Creative Home Learning

Creative home learning will be set as an assignment on Teams. Please save the work completed on Teams. This could be photographs of work. We look forward to sharing it together the week beginning 7th February. Thank you. 


We are writing about A Midsummer Night's Dream







We are learning about  Multiplications and Division. 






Week beginning 09.05.22




Children will bring home their reading book, linked to the phonics or book band they have been assessed at. They also have the choice to select another book, which can be at any book band level. This might be a recommended reading book or library book to share at home with you. 


Recommended Reading List Challenge

Once the children have read a book from the recommended reading list, it would be great if they could complete a reader response activity found in their reading planner.  The completed activities should be saved in their class notebook folder on Teams.
