Welcome to Year 2

Mrs Blackbourn, Mrs Crampton and Mrs Blom would like to welcome you to the Year 2 homepage. 

As class teachers we work as part of a dedicated team and are supported in the delivery of the curriculum by Mrs Banks. We appreciate the support that you as parents give us in many ways such as helping children with their homework tasks or coming into school to help. 

We want your child to be content in school and reach their full potential so please do not hesitate to come and see us if there is anything you wish to speak to us about.

PE days

In Year two we have indoor and outdoor PE lessons throughout the year so children will need the following PE kit:

  • plain white PE T-shirt
  • navy/black PE shorts
  • plimsolls
  • long sleeved navy/black sweatshirt top
  • black/navy tracksuit/jogging bottoms (not leggings)
  • trainers

Both classes have PE lessons on Mondays and Fridays. If children have long hair, this needs to be tied back for safety reasons and any child with earrings will need to be able to remove them independently or come to school without them in on those days.

Learning in Year 2

We believe that children learn better when they link their ideas and learning together across different subjects. We have overall themes to help them with this. Our Term 5 Topic is called, "Oh, we do like to be beside the Seaside". This is an exciting topic which encorporates most of the curriculum areas and of course we have our trip to wells-Next-The-Sea during the term, which forms the basis of a great deal of our learning. We will recap our Geography learning about the continents and oceans of the world.

During the year we hold Pop-in sessions where we will try to offer support for parents in some of the Year 2 curriculum areas. 

If you are unable to attend one of the Pop-ins, we hope that the presentation slides we use will be useful to you.
