Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Miss Harwood and Miss Carmichael would like to welcome you to Year 2.

Year 2 is a great year, full of new experiences and big achievements, and we feel lucky to be sharing this part of your learning journey with you.

It can be a little daunting beginning a new school year but don’t worry, we are here to help you settle back in. Please come and talk to us if you do have any worries or if there is anything you are unsure about.

We are so happy to be welcoming you back to school and we’re really looking forward to getting to know you all a bit better. We’ll work hard together, learn lots of new things, and most importantly we’ll have plenty of fun!

See you soon,

Miss Harwood and Miss Carmichael


WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS WEEK? – Week Commencing 18 October 2021


This week in maths we will spend a little more time practising addition and subtraction calculations within their fact families. This will help to build fluency and ensure that our knowledge is secure enough to apply in a problem-solving context.


In English we will have the opportunity to show off all of the story-telling skills we have practised so far this term with some independent writing based on traditional tales.


This week, both Miss Harwood and Miss Carmichael’s group will be consolidating and revising the sounds covered since the beginning of term.

There are no spelling words to learn this week, however you may wish to practise some of the Key Stage 1 Common Exception Words instead. By the end of Year 2, it is expected that children are able to read and write all words for Year 1 (45 words) and Year 2 (64 words). For your information, a full list of these common exception words is available on our class page of the school website.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Harwood & Miss Carmichael
