Year 2

Welcome from Miss Hamilton

"Pupils’ work across the curriculum is often of a high standard. They take pride in what they produce and work hard in the time given."




We do PE on Mondays and Tuesdays.  Please ensure your child does not wear earrings and comes to school in their PE kit.

Year 2 Homework

  • Maths – use an online maths programme (Numbots)
  • Spelling – in a spelling homework book. 5 spellings to practise, in Year 2 children should write sentences.
  • Reading will be sent home frequently too


The areas outlined below are how you can support your child at home.

Reading – Your child reads to you daily for 10 minutes. Reading to them is also fun and helpful but it is important that they also have time practising reading to you. Ideally, a book that is the right level for your child will mean they are able to read about 8-9 out of 10 words correctly.

Here is a link to the e-book library:

Spelling – At the top of this page is a list of the Y1 and Y2 common exception words. It is expected that all Y2 children are able to read and write these tricky words. They are called common exception words because they are words that are often used but are unable to be sounded out phonetically. We will begin by covering the Y1 words, working our way down the column. Every two weeks, on a Friday, spellings will be sent home in the children’s homework books. Please help support your child in learning to spell these words. In the “Quick Homework Links” section you can find fun ideas to help your child learn spellings. They will be asked to write them from memory on the following Friday in a spelling challenge.

This homework is provided to help support your child in their learning. Every child and family is different so please complete with a balance that suits your timetable and child. Please ask if you are unsure about something.

Thank you for your support!
