Autumn term in Year 2




Welcome to Year 2!

We hope you had a lovely summer holiday and that you are excited about all of the great activities we will be doing in our new year group!

We are still in KS1 but upstairs in Year 2 we are going to learn lots of new and exciting things.

Do you know anything about Yaks, Pandas or Lorises? They are animals from Asia. Asia is a continent that we will still be looking at in KS1! 


Don't forget you can contact your class teacher at 

If you have a question or would like to share one or two of your learning activities with us or just to say hello! Please include your name and class in the subject line.



Soft start

Please remember we do not line up in the mornings. Children get dropped off on the KS1 playground. Please make sure you come all the way round to the KS1 playground so that a member of staff can see your child/ren. Reminder: do not drop them off on the basketball court.

Once the children come in and wash their hands, they start an early morning activity.

Soft start is from 8:35am-8:50am

Registration starts at 8:50am


Reading books will be changed every Monday and Thursday. Children will be given a new yellow reading diary. When you have read with your child at home, please sign this diary. Reading books are also available online at Collins Big Cat - please read with your child every day and ensure their reading planner is in school every day so that KS1 staff may check the planner. 


PE will be on Wednesday for all classes.  Children should come in to school wearing their PE kit please. All earrings to be removed on Wednesday for PE and long hair must be tied back.

Cracking Number Facts

Cracking Number Facts are tested on a Wednesday with a two-minute test.  Results are given to the children and if a level is passed a certificate will be sent home by the end of the same week.  Please note we do not send home completed sheets - see the note below for more information about Cracking Number Facts.

We do not expect the children to pass every week so please do not worry, just keep practising and encouraging your child to do their best.

Note: All children will start cracking number facts level from the beginning


Homework is set each Friday and is due back on the following Wednesday.  In line with school policy each activity should take the following amount of time:-

Reading 10-15 minutes daily

Spelling 10 minutes weekly (tested the following Thursday)

English 20 minutes weekly

Maths 20 minutes weekly 

If your child is struggling to complete their homework in this time, please speak to your class teacher.  Over school holidays your child may be asked to complete a project linked to work which they have been doing in class.


Remember, your child should also spend some time everyday on:-

Numbots & TTRS

Collins Big Cat

Nessy (if you have a login) for 20 minutes
