Year 2: Aqua Topaz


Welcome to Year 2!


Welcome back to all our pupils and families – we hope you had a relaxing Easter Break and are ready for the Summer Term


In Numeracy this term, we are revising our mental and written strategies for calculating using all four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will use our knowledge of place value to help us with our addition and subtraction and solve problems in the context of money, measures and time using our strategies.


In Literacy, we have another new text – ‘Grace and Family’. This text thoughtfully explores issues of family and separation and we will use our skills of empathy to write in the first person in the style of letters and diary entries. We will also be focusing on our spelling and grammar skills in our writing, so remember to learn and practice your spellings every week!


This term, Y2 will be completing their SATs examinations in school. Therefore, it is vital that you continue to ensure that your child is in school every day. Weekly homework for Y2 will continue to take the form of practice SATs questions to familiarise the children with the style and format. If you have any questions regarding SATs testing, please speak to your child’s class teacher or Mrs Ellis.


Thank you for your continued support and input – we appreciate and value your feedback.


We love school!



As you will be aware, during May the Y2 pupils will be sitting their KS1 SATs examinations. It is imperative that your child is in school everyday during this period. There is no set day for the examinations. Should your child be ill on a test day, when your child is back in school, they will sit the test with their class teacher and any other pupils who missed the test.

Olympic Day

This week in year 2..

Year 2 went to Kidzania!

In Literacy we have been looking at instructions and discussed how we can write clear instructions using bossy verbs and time openers. We worked together to make a set of instructions for Paddington bear on how to make a sandwich. We then improved the instructions, so we could make our own jam sandwiches. They were delicious!

In science we have been comparing how different seeds grow in different ways. We discussed how plants need water, soil, sunlight and space to grow, and discovered that the seeds that were not near the sun curled in funny ways to try and reach it.
