Welcome to Year 2.
Children will be provided with a healthy snack each day. If you would prefer, a healthy snack like a piece of fruit may be brought from home.
Numbots for Mathematics
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.
Reading in Year 2
Children should be reading at home 5 times a week. Please tell us about the reading in the reading planner.
Computer Log-ins including Numbots and Purplemash usernames and passwords can also be found in the reading planner.

For our first learning journey, we are thinking about poetry based on the Great Fire of London. We have read lots of poems and read the book, 'The Great Fire of London' by Emma Adams. Our grammar skills are using exclamation sentences and expanded noun phrases. This week, we are considering rhyming words and starting to plan writing our own poems.
Place Value is the first focus for Year 2. We will be thinking about more than and less than this week. The vocabulary we are using:
Our Learning journey:
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 has been set as an assignment on Teams. Children can bring their home learning to school or alternatively they can upload a picture/video/ppt to their Teams account to present to the rest of the class. We will share their wonderful work with the year group just before the half term break.
