Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 page!

Year 2 has three classes;

the Bright Badgers, the Clever Foxes and the Awesome Otters.


The teachers will tell you about their classes and will be uploading pictures and information about their learning as the school year progresses.

 In Year 2 we are fabulous learners! We work hard and use our GRIT in everything we do. We never give up, even when we are faced with the biggest challenges because we know that this is how we will learn. We also love encouraging each other and working together to learn side by side.

Children must have a PE kit in school to change into, please make sure it is clearly labelled with your child’s name.


Your child will be bringing home their homework every week. This needs to be completed and returned to school. Please support your child’s learning by completing and returning all given homework this includes reading bookstimes tables and spellings.

Throughout the term Year 2 will also have enrichment experiences - special events or days focusing on a specific topic or event.
