Year 2

Welcome back to the Summer term!


Our English work this term will be based around different books, some of these include ‘Not now Bernard’, ‘The day the crayons quit’, ‘The storm whale’ and many more. We will be using these books to inspire us to write a variety of different texts.


We are going to be starting the term with looking at Europe including the location of different countries as well as their capital cities.


We are going to be finishing our topic of ‘Young gardeners’ which explore plants and their needs when they grow. We will then be moving onto ‘Little Masterchefs’ which focusses on what we need to survive, the importance of diet and exercise as well as the materials used in a kitchen.


Children will be exploring sculpture and will be creating houses out of clay.

Design and Technology

In DT, children will learn about different structures and will be designing, creating and evaluating a chair for baby bear.


To start the term, in RE will focus on Eastertide. We will be looking at the story of Pentecost, we will also be exploring the symbols of Pentecost and the promise that Jesus made.

Supporting your child at home

There is an expectation that children will read at home daily. Please ensure that you note what has been read in your child’s reading diaries and send these to school every day. A member of the Year Two teaching team will check reading diaries regularly and a reward system will be used to help children celebrate the books they have read.

Other classroom Information

Please avoid bringing backpacks into school. Please ensure that your child has their water bottle and book bag in school every day. Children need to wear PE clothes on Wednesdays. Please make sure that it is appropriate for the weather for outside lessons.

Thank you for your continued support. I am sure we will have a fantastic year and have a lot of fun (there will be a lot of work as well).
