Year 2H

Welcome to Year 2H class pages 2020-2021

We would all like to welcome you and your child back to school after what I am sure you will agree, seems a very long time.  It is lovely to welcome everyone back and to see all the children’s smiling faces. We know that the past six months have been a very strange and confusing time for all, however between the home-schooling and working from home, we hope that you have managed to find time to make some lovely memories together.


We are excited to be teaching and guiding your child through the next stage of their learning adventure. It is an exciting year for your child as they begin their journey in Year 2, which is their final year in Key Stage One. We are pleased to have Mrs McGarry in our Year 2 bubble.  Mrs McGarry has a wealth of experience and skills, which will be used to support children in both Year 2 classes throughout the year.


In Year 2, we have high expectations of all the children, and we ask that they come to school with a positive attitude to learning. Our classroom is a caring and positive environment where praise and encouragements are used to help every child thrive.


Throughout the year, lots of new and exciting learning will take place. As always, we value the support you give your child at home and wish to continue this positive partnership throughout the year. Now more than ever, a little and often approach to practising phonics and reading will have a powerful and prolonged impact on making long lasting connections and developing and extending your child’s fundamental learning skills.


As you can appreciate the start and end of the school day can be very busy, especially during these unusual times. Therefore, if you have any concerns or enquiries, please email your child’s class teacher or make a telephone appointment with the school office. This will allow us to give you more time for any discussions.


The Curriculum Overview for learning for the year is shared on this page. It gives a brief outline of the subjects and learning objectives we will teach throughout Year 2.  We will continue to update this page periodically, sharing details of our exciting learning experiences and include any useful links to support your child’s learning from home. 


We look forward to a happy and successful year with your child and thank you once again for your continued support. 


With kind regards,


Mrs Eubank,  Mrs Hathaway,  and Mrs Watts  - Year 2 Teaching Team.

We are so excited to share a special message from the author Nicola Colton. 

She was so impressed with the drawings and stories that we sent to her, that she recorded her own message for our Y2s. 


We are so proud of them all.

Home Learning 2019-2020

Australia Day 2019-2020

Having fun celebrating Australia Day!

Aboriginal Art 2019-2020

On 'Australia Day' we looked at some Aboriginal Art and then created our own artwork in this style.


School might be closed because of the coronavirus but we’ve certainly been keeping ourselves busy!  During Holy Week we were set some Easter challenges and so far we’ve written the Easter story,  baked delicious cakes and biscuits,  designed a cross,  learnt how to say ‘Happy Easter’ in many different languages,  designed and created Easter gardens and baskets, made Easter cards and pictures and even made fizzing eggs!  Take a look at our wonderful work! 

Autumn 2019

Have you ever wished you could be a fly on the wall to see what goes on in class once we've been dropped off at school?  Here's your opportunity to take a glimpse into what we got up to during the Autumn Term.


Hard at Work

We work hard in our class, but we make sure that we have plenty of time for fun too!

God's Creation

We started the year by looking at how God created our world.  We read Psalm 8 and decided to illustrate verse 8 to show the wonders of His work.


Whilst learning about our local area, we created a display of where we like to play.  


In our Re work, we learnt that when we are baptised we become part of God’s family.  Some of use brought special items from the days we were baptised to share with our class.

In November, We Remember

Our half term homework was to make a poppy to commemorate Remembrance Day.  We enjoyed looking at each other’s ideas and our teachers were very impressed with our imagination and creativity.  Here are just some of our wonderful poppies.


We made cards to celebrate Divali, the Festival of Lights.  Our Nativity performance was ‘Whoops a Daisy Angel’ and we made Christingles.  The word Christingle means ‘Christ’s Light’ and it is a symbol of the Christian faith.
