Welcome to Year 2!


Autumn Term

Here you will find out what we're learning about this term.

Craft and games club will start on Friday 28th September 2018 3-4pm. 

We have had a fantastic trip to Tullie House in Carlisle. We met Florence Nightingale! 

In Year 2 we do our best to be like 'Work-at-it' Wiz. When we are feeling stuck we think about what Wiz would do. If we are worried about something then we let our worry monster eat it.



 This term we are going to be doing lots of work based around Florence Nightingale. 

We are also going to be doing lots of work on traditional tales.  

Phonics/spelling sessions will run daily and we will have a SPaG focus each week which will be looked at on Mondays. 

Science: In Science we are going to learn all about Scientists and Inventors

In Maths we are going to develop in the following areas:  

  • number and place value
  • addition and subtraction
  • money
  • multiplication and division 

Topic: Our topic this term is going to all about 'Significant People' and 'Nurturing Nurses' and will involve lots of History, English and Art work.

We are also going to learn all about the Great Fire of London. 


In R.E. we are going to answer the following questions: 

  • Why do Christians celebrate Harvest? 
  • What can we learn from the stories Jesus told? 
  • What are the messages of Christmas? 

Computing: Word processing skills. Using the internet safely. Art on computers. 

P.E. We are very excited to go to Gymnastics this term. We will go to Whitehaven Sports Centre on Tuesday mornings for our lesson. On Mondays, children will take part in multi-sports delivered by an external provider.   Please ensure PE kits are always in school and any earrings taken out at home. 

Music: We will explore rhythm and pulse, as well as singing games. 

Homework: Children who read at home five times a week will receive a sticker for their 'Strive for 5!' chart. Children also have a phonics card to practise with at home. Children will be given their spellings on Mondays. Half of these will be tested on Wednesdays and half on Fridays. Children will receive activities (usually a word search) to complete which will aid the learning of spellings.
