Welcome to Year 2




Year 2 Information

Welcome to year 2. Here is some important information that you will need:

  • PE is currently on a Thursday and Friday afternoon and we are doing games and gym. Please ensure a full named kit is in school and earrings are covered on these days.
  • Homework is to be handed in on a Thursday. We then share it and send a homework heroes to the display.
  • Children have all been given a named water bottle which is to be kept in school so that children can sip it throughout the day. Please take it on a Friday to be cleaned and then return it on Friday.
  • We encourage children to read at home as often as possible and we read in school through 1 to 1 reading and group guided reading sessions. Please ensure reading books come into school every day. Pupils receive reading stars for doing home reading which link to rewards at the end of a half term.

Times tables


Children are expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables by the end of year 2. They should know them in and out of order and with the related division facts. We learn them with the timestable being learnt at the start e.g. 2 x 1, 2 x 2, 2 x 3, 2 x 4 etc.

Children will all be given log in details for times table rock stars.  Here is the link: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school



In addition to homework children can also do extra work on mymaths. Logins can be found on homework books. Here is the link https://www.mymaths.co.uk/

Children have access to a range of home reading books on the active learn website: https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0

Class Dojo Reward System


If you haven't already, please sign up to the Class Dojo Reward System being used throughout school. Your login details were sent home with your child. If these details have been misplaced please let us know and we can give you another copy.

Class Dojo is a great way to keep up to date with class news/photographs and see the reasons why your child is being awarded points by the class teacher!
