Learning Letters

Please find links below to all our learning letters for the academic year 2022-2023. These contain important information on topics we are covering in class and PE days. They also include details on learning challenges for your child to complete at home.

Autumn 1      Autumn 2         Spring 1          Spring 2          Summer 1     Summer 2         

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.

 My book recommendations this half term are 

  • My first Zambia book
  • All about plants
  • The Lion inside written by Rachel Bright
  • National geographic Seed to plant


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 Spring term, PE will be on Tuesday and Friday's – Children should have their full PE kits in school at all times - as per letter attached.


Resources at home

Purple MashActive Learn and TTRS can all be accessed from home - logins are in the front of the 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.

In maths, we have been learning all about measuring! We have measuring length and mass!

In year two, we love to continue our learning at home. Below are some photographs of some of our home learning challenges.
