Welcome to Year 2.

We are a kind class who love learning about new things and try our best every day.

Our Topic is: "Land Ahoy!"

Yo ho, yo ho, it’s a sailor’s life for me. Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world, just like Captain Cook. Make a boat, sink a ship, fly a pirate flag. Speak like a pirate, write like a poet, then weigh and measure a pirate’s treasure. How do rescues happen at sea? Find out about brave volunteers and young Miss Darling, rowing her boat across stormy seas. Sing and perform a sea shanty. There’s land ahead. Let’s get this ship to port.

In English, we will be using The Last Wolf by Mini Grey.  A fabulous picture book with a green twist on a children’s classic story.

In Maths, we are using the White Rose scheme for Year 2. This will be building on knowledge learned year 1 and supporting all levels, so that every child is able to progress.

For our RE, we follow the Guildford Diocese recommended curriculum.

We will be also working on other parts of the curriculum, so that everyone has a chance to shine.

Long Term Plan:

Medium Term Plan:

Half Term Plan:



Every week the children will be given their homework on Monday, to be completed by the following Monday.

They will be given:

  • Weekly spellings to learn;
  • activities, focusing on Grammar and Punctuation;
  • For Maths, focus on alternate weeks:

In addition, we ask for them to read for 15 minutes every day.

This is an important part of their learning and will support and reinforce their progress during the year.

Please look at the list below of recommended books to read with your child. Sharing books with them is something you can do regularly to support them in their learning.

Listen to your child read and read to them. Ask them questions about what they are reading: Do they understand all of the language? Are they following the plot developments? Can they make predictions about the progression of the story? Have they understood what's being inferred by the author?

These books are recommendations only, not compulsory!


On Monday afternoons the children will be following our Real PE sports program. 

On Wednesday afternoons, the children will be enjoying outdoor PE.
