Year 2


Welcome to year 2

God is present in every beginning - At the beginning of the year we asked to God to help us as we learn and grow in year 2. Help us to listen. Help us to speak kindly to each other. Help us to share our thoughts and feelings. Help us to be understanding. Help us to be who Jesus called us to be.


Already this half term, the children have impressed me with their story-telling abilities. They have written stories based on the Jill Murphy book - Peace at Last.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading their stories and we are now moving onto writing reports on transport before writing poems ... all before October break- WOW!



 Throughout the half term the children will their understanding of number, place value, measures of length and mass, addition and subtraction and shape.

Alongside this learning, the children will also develop their knowledge of the 2,5 and 10 times tables - so please practice with your child at home.


This half term the children are learning about coming to school in the past. We were able to research Holy Saviours RC School and found out that it was built in 1970. We have been very lucky to have Mrs Aherne speak to the class about working in school for a while and she told the children some great facts which inspired some fabulous writing. We will continue with our school theme for the rest of the half term.
