Summer term in year 2


Welcome back year 2, we hope you had a lovely half term holiday and that you are excited about all of the great activities we will be doing in the summer term!


Our theme for this term is 'Fire and Ice'.  We will be learning all about the Great Fire of London and exploring the Arctic, looking at and growing plants in our science lessons and much, much more!   Our Knowledge Organisers for this term can be found below, please read them and complete the quiz.



Reading books are 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.  We will also be sending home reading books on a Friday which should be sent back in to school by the following Wednesday to be quarantined.



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.



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


Cracking Number Facts

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


Important Reminders

  • Children must bring their planners in daily and try to read at home every evening
  • All dinner money and school trips should now be paid through Parent Pay
  • Year 2 have the option for a hot meal on a Tuesday
