Main themes:

  1. Recount

You can help your child by encouraging any form of writing at home. It would be helpful to let them orally retell their favourite stories including speech and description. Plan stories using the titles beginning, middle, end, characters, setting, problem and resolution.

Encourage them to recount events from their weekend by keeping a diary


You can help your child by reading each night for at least ten minutes and signing their reading diary. It can be a book sent from school or any that you have at home or from the library. Please feel free to record all of their reading in their reading records.



Help your child apply their weekly spelling rules in their writing.


Main themes:

1. Number and Place Value

2. Addition and subtraction

3. Money

4. 2D shapes

5. Multiplication

6. Division

How you can help

You can help your child by completing their homework which will be sent every Friday and revising times table facts; number bonds to 10, 20 and 100; also talking to them about change when shopping and measuring when cooking in the kitchen.

Creative Curriculum

Main themes: How great was ‘The Great Fire of London?’

How you can help

We will be focusing on the impact the Great fire of London had on the lives of others and exploring what it would’ve been like to live back then. If you have any books or artefacts that you would be happy to share with us and that would be appropriate to our learning, it would be very much appreciated


Main themes: Materials

How you can help

In this unit children have the opportunity to closely study materials in the natural environment. Children will explore the properties of different materials.

Discuss common materials and where it comes from. Try to help them recognise and name common material around your home and the local environment

Children in 2S will need their PE kit on a Monday and Thursday. Children in 2M will need their PE kits on a Wednesday and Thursday. They will be going outside for most lessons so please make sure they have a jumper in their kit and trainers to wear. Please clearly label all of the clothing and their bag so that they can be identified easily if they happen to go missing.


Children are expected to bring their book bag to school every day. Please ensure their reading record is kept up to date and signed by you once a week. Homework will be given out on Fridays and should be returned on Wednesdays.


Please ensure that your child brings a clearly labeled water bottle to school every day and a weather appropriate coat.


We thank you for your support and look forward to an excellent year with your child.


With best wishes


Mrs Ahmed, Mrs Ramasamy and Miss Fisher

Trips and Events

London Eye Trip

26th September 2019

Dear Parents/Carers,

On Tuesday 15th October 2019, both Year 2 classes will be visiting the London Eye as part of our Creative Curriculum topic -‘How Great was the Great Fire of London?’ We will be leaving school at 9:30am and travelling by tube.

Your child will need to wear their school uniform and suitable outdoor clothing. Please also provide your child with a healthy packed lunch (no sweets, fizzy drinks or glass bottles).
The voluntary contribution requested for the visit is £10.00 per child. However, if we do not collect 70% of the requested contribution the trip will have to be cancelled.  Please make your payment on ParentMail by Friday 4th October 2019 at the latest.
We would be very grateful for parent/carer volunteers to accompany us on the trip.  If you would like to come along, please let your class teacher know.  However, we only have a limited number of adult tickets for the London Eye itself so we cannot guarantee that all the adults will be able to go on.
Thank you for your continued support.

Yours Sincerely

Mrs Ahmed and Mrs Ramasamy
Year 2 Teachers
