Christ at the Heart Of All We Do

Welcome to Year 2 Class

In Year 2 we are taught by Mrs McSorley and are supported by Mrs Canty. Mrs Canty and Mr. Ashworth also teach us when Mrs McSorley is completing her planning and preparation.  

We follow the the school ethos 'Christ at the Heart of All We Do'  to ensure that we can complete our learning to the best of our ability.

Home learning - Friday 17th September 2021

Good morning Year Two!

Mrs Canty and I did not expect a burst water pipe this morning or to be back putting work online!

We hope you have a lovely day whatever you end up doing and here is some work for you to complete at home - please feel free to email me on 2email (on Purplemash) if you have any questions about today's work set 

You may also want to go for a walk and use your beat the street fob!

L.O. To use a range of adjectives

Here are some of the adjectives we have collected from our book

‘The way home for Wolf’










Today I would like for you to use some of these adjectives - or maybe some of your own to write some sentences to describe this image taken from 'The way home for Wolf' 

Remember to use capital letters and full stops!

(...and presentation is everything - so beautiful handwriting please!)

Place value 

Today you are going to be looking at tens and ones with a part-whole model. You have done something like this before in Year One and with me last week. So this lesson is a recap of these skills.

Here are just a few things to remember in Year Two:

Reading books

Home reading books can be changed daily but can only be changed once an adult has signed to say that their child has read and has finished their reading book.

Children are to remember to put any books that need to be changed into the box ready for the class teaching assistant to change them in the morning.

If they are not put into the box in the morning, they will then have to be changed the following day.


Spellings will be sent home every Friday to be learnt and practised for the test on the following Friday. (Hand in Friday – back out Friday)

Your child’s spelling test scores will be given in their spelling folders.

Homework challenges will be sent out every half term


Throughout the Autumn term, PE will be on Wednesday & Thursday's – don’t forget to come into school in your PE kits on those days!

We will have a class blog on our school website. Our blog can be viewed on our class page and this will be updated regularly with information, photographs and children’s work!

Resources at home

Purple mash, active learn and TTRS can be accessed from home - logins are in children's reading records.

KIRF's (Key Instant Recall Facts)

KIRF’s are designed to support the development of the mental skills that underpin much of the maths work we complete in school. They are particularly useful when calculating, be it adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing.
