Every Person is Precious to God

Welcome to Year 2!

School Closure Work


Please complete the questions below that cover the four operations that we have learned in Year 2 so far.



This week we have been learning about Florence Nightingale. We will be writing a diary entry from her point of view. Could you complete a diary entry of what you have been up today. It must be in chronological order starting with waking up and finishing when you go to bed. It could include what you had for breakfast, what activities you did in the morning, what you had for lunch and what you did in the afternoon.


In Geography, we have been comparing Kenya and the UK. We recognise that both England and Kenya suffer from water shortgages. While droughts in England are not as severe as Kenya, during the summer months we often have a hosepipe ban in place to reduce our water usage. Can you create a poster to raise awareness for how you can reduce water usage. You might include examples such as having a shower instead of a bath or turning the tap off when you are brushing your teeth.

What materials is our school made from?




 In Year 2 children will complete assessments every half term to prepare them for the SATS Assessments in May. These assessments will be completed in small groups with their class teachers in a calm environment in an aim to remove any stress or pressure that the children may feel during these times. In the months leading to the SATS assessments some children will be chosen to take part in booster, intervention sessions to further prepare them. The children's homework will be based on SATS style reading, arithmetic and reasoning questions therefore it is vital that homework is completed on time, every week. 


Here are some examples of SATS Assessments that the children will be completing this year.

Physical Education:

Year 2’s P.E. day will be on a Thursday afternoon. Please send your child in their P.E. kits and please make sure they bring a water bottle.


Reading Books

Children receive a reading book online at Collins Big Cat ebook libraries and a hard copy of the same book. This will be changed every Thursday and recorded in their reading record book. Please make sure you listen to your child read every day and record the name of the book, page number and any comments about their reading. We always love to hear how your children are getting on at home!

Thank you for your support with this.

If you need to speak with your child's class teacher then our doors are always open.
