Welcome to our Year Two information page. Over the year, we will update this page with important information, examples of work and learning that you can do at home to support your child's progress. 



Well done to our Star of the Week for 'Making everyone welcome'. 


You are a super smiley and caring individual. You always check on others and ask them if they have had a good day. 


You have a very positive effect on everyone in our class and we are very lucky to have you with us.

Thank you for being thoughtful and kind.

Autumn 1 Topic 

What will we find in the deep, dark woods? 

Week commencing 14.09.20 

This week we are... 


This week, our focus reading text is...

Stanley's Stick is a teaming-up of hefty talents - glorious poet John Hegley and award-winning illustrator Neal Layton. Stanley's stick is not just a stick. With a stick in hand, Stanley's options are endless - he flies to the moon, writes in the sand, goes fishing, plays a whistle and rides a dinosaur - and his imagination takes over and the magic begins.


Hegley's lyrical prose captures the free-wheeling expressiveness of childhood, and Layton's deceptively simple illustrations are full of wit and character. Sweet, magical and thoroughly entertaining, this is Hegley and Layton's first collaboration.


This week we will continue to read 'The magic and mystery of Trees' by Jen Green.


We will write our own non-chronological report about trees and why they are so important. 

We will use all of the key non-fiction features that we have discusses and we will include all of the facts we have remembered from our reading sessions. 




This week in Maths, we will be continuing to look at Place Value. We will focus closely on tens and ones and the difference in value between these numbers. We will use part-whole models to practically partition numbers in a variety of ways. We will also look at how we can use addition to understand partitioning and the ways we can split a number up. 


Use this video to show those at home what we know about partitioning.
