Year 2

Welcome to year 2


The year 2 team for 2023 - 2024 consists of Miss Cox (2E) and Mr Whitehouse (2F).  


This half term, the children in year 2 will be travelling back to 1666 to discover and find out about the  devastating events of the Great Fire of London.  This will include exploring what life was like in London in 1666, before looking at how the fire started on the 2nd September.  The children will also focus on what happened during the fire, plotting the events on a timeline.  They will investigate the cause and consequences of the fire, looking at what happened after the Great Fire of London. 


If you would like to explore more with your children at home, follow this helpful link:



For this half term, year 2 PE days are Thursday and Friday.  Please familiarise yourself with the uniform policy in relation to PE, including health and safety requirements linked to jewellery.


Please ensure that your child brings in a water bottle and their reading book/record, as well as their link book, every day.


Homework is set on a Friday, and is due in by the following Thursday.  Children should be reading to an adult at least three times per week for at least 15/20 minutes each time.  Reading can take place with either the book sent home from school or an allocated book on your child's Bug Club.  Each book must be recorded in your child's reading record, including any ebooks.


Please ensure that any belongings are labelled - it makes it easier to return when left around school.
