Welcome to Year 2
A class of inspirational Year 2 children who work well as a team!
A note from the Year 2 team to our wonderful children:
We can't believe this is the last week of you being in Year 2! We are going to miss you so much next year but you are all ready for the juniors and we cannot wait to see you shine and sparkle in your new classes. We hope you have a lovely summer holiday and can't wait to see your smiling faces in September.
An update from the Year 2 team to our wonderful parents:
We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our heart for all the support you have given us as teachers and your children throughout these unprecedented times. We have loved receiving emails and videos from you keeping us updated on the progress the children have been making. We can not imagine how tricky this has been for you all. You have all made wonderful teachers! We are now coming to the end of the school year. It has been a joy to teach your children and don't worry we will be keeping a close eye on them next year!! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you feel there is a problem or an issue.
From Monday 20th July, it will have be our last 3 days with the children. During this time we normally complete lots of sport and art work. Although we will be putting things on the website for the last 2 days please don't feel under any pressure to complete the activities. We won't be putting any work up during the summer holidays as we are both going away on holiday. We hope you have a lovely summer and will see you in September.
Many of our children love books and thoroughly enjoy Reading For Pleasure. Let them enjoy reading books, curled up with a hot chocolate and their favourite teddy.

Please continue working on the Year 2 common exception words so that they can practise spelling. You could hide them around the house, they could maybe write letters to their friends (or us!) or write a story. Year 2 Common Exception Word Booklet
We often use Spelling Play to teach the children the spelling rules in Year 2 https://www.spellingplay.co.uk/y2_member/planning_year2_spelling.html This half term, we would be revising the area Vowel Suffixes 1, but you can do whatever you feel like doing!

We have now finished all the units of learning for maths in Year 2. We always spend a few weeks after Easter with the children going over work to get them ready for the SATs which we have not had to do. So we are going to spend the next 5 weeks recapping work which the children have already been taught. Please don't worry if you have forgotten anything!!
