Year 2 -
Mrs Nowell & Mrs Hyland
Welcome to Year 2! Here you can find useful links to support your learning at home as well as find key documents that we use in class.
We will also communicate regularly on Class Dojo day to day.
Update: 4th January 2021.
From tomorrow 5th January 2021 we are back to remote learning. We know you are amazing and we will be there every step of the way. If you are not able to join us at school (see critical workers list) then please begin your day by picking an activity from our spring home learning mat.
Once Mrs Hyland has adapted the work she was going to do with you today she will upload it here and onto Class Dojo for you.
We can do this. Upload any work onto portfolios.
Stay Safe. Stay Well. Stay in Touch.
January - February 2021
This term our topic is:
'Pirates and Mermaids!'
This term we will be learning all about the continents and oceans. We will explore the animals that live in different places around the world and look at how we classify and group them. In maths we will look at how to multiply and divide (although we are not sure pirates would be too keen on the sharing part!). We will learn about the finer points of writing by focsuing on our grammatical skills and will spend time reading and singing tales of the sea. In art we will learn about how we can make art from collage and weaving and we are lucky enough to have Relax Kids to help calm our minds and hearts.
Take a look at our curriculum overview to see what we will be learning this term. Also download the spelling and vocabulary mat as these are the words we will be learning to read and write this term. The words in the curriculum column are the ones you should try and practise each week at home. If you want to complete learning at home take a look at the home learning grid as it has loads of ideas linked to our learning in school.

We understand that sometimes the return to school after a break can be difficult and will do everything we can to support your child. Please be assured that our classroom will continue to be the safe, fun and engaging place it has always been. The return to school will be CALM and all the children will be looked after. If you ever wish to contact us please use Class Dojo to message us - no worry too small - and we will repsond as soon as we are able.
For more information about how we are approaching the return to school and plan to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that supports your child's academic needs alongside their emotional wellbeing please read out Recovery Curriculum Document.
If your child has specific additional interventions in connection with an IEP or outside support agency Mrs Stafford will be in touch to provide you with resources to support at home. You can also find additional support on the SEND page of this website.
