Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!



The team is Mrs Beever, Mrs Lee, Mr Digby, Miss Hussain, Mrs Cook and Mrs Jubb.




Welcome to Year 2’s page.

In this first Autumn half-term we are learning about Activists in history and our Global Theme is ‘Social Justice and Equity.’

In English we will be learning about the legend of Robin Hood and creating a narrative based on Robin Hood.

In Maths, we will be focussing on place value and addition and subtraction. 

In Book Study we will read, The Illustrated Robin Hood, Malala’s Magic Pencil and The Story of Ruby Bridges.



Science sees us learning about Living Things and their Habitats.

Our PE days are Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure that all children are in the correct PE uniform, hair is tied up and they are not wearing jewellery. The children should come to school wearing their PE uniform on PE days.



Reading is one of the most important skills the children need to learn at this age. We expect the children to read their book at home each day for a short time. This needs to be written in their reading record books. The books you are given will be read throughout the week and will be changed on Fridays.




On Friday we will collect in their reading record books and add the number of reads they have done to the reading challenge chart. Every time they complete 40 reads at home they get a book to keep.



As part of Readmore@Phillimore on Wednesdays we will be holding a library day. Children who have their book bag will be able to borrow a book for the week.
