Welcome to Year 2!


All class photos will now be uploaded to the 'Gallery'. Please click '2019-20' and go to 'Year 2'.


The four purposes of the new curriculum for Wales inform our teaching. Our learning experiences enable our pupils to be:


  • ambitious, capable learners who undertake research and evaluate critically what they find and are ready to learn throughout their lives
  • enterprising, creative contributors who give of their energy and skills so that other people will benefit and are ready to play a full part in life and work
  • ethical, informed citizens who show their commitment to the sustainability of the planet and are ready to be citizens of Wales and the world
  • healthy, confident individuals who have the skills and knowledge to manage everyday life as independently as they can and are ready to lead fulfilling lives as valued members of society.

Context overview for the year



Autumn Term

                         Our Context for Autumn 2 is Shopping - Past, present ans seasonal! We will be looking at how shopping has changed since Victorian times, working on money calculations as well as shopping during Christmas time!

 Our Context for Autumn 1 is 'Don't be boring, go Exploring!'  We will be exploring our new environment, the outdoor area, as well as learning about real life explorers such as Amelia Earheart, Neil Armstrong and Helen Skelton.                             



In Maths this term we will be…

Developing our love of maths and increasing our levels of confidence. We will start the year by investigating place value, using what we have learnt to solve problems. Alongside this we will be learning about money, how to count it to see how much we have and how to make a set amount. Later, we’ll move onto addition and subtraction and learn some super strategies that can help us work with two, 2-digit numbers.






We understand the importance of literacy skills and their use within the wider world.  As part of your child's literacy lessons, they will be learning to spell words relating to specific patterns each week in class.  We have listened to your feedback and have made available lists of words that you can study with your child at home.  The lists compiled are words that your child will come across as part of their reading in school and are age appropriate. These can be found under 'Resources and Useful Links'. 




In RE we follow the Come and See Program of study. We will be starting with New Beginnings, then looking at other faiths, then moving on to looking at Mass, Advent and Christmas.




PE will take place every Friday . Please bring in shorts/leggings/tracksuit and a t-shirt. The children will also need trainers and in the colder months, a fleece or sweatshirt. Earrings will need to be removed or covered with tape before the children come to school.  





Bug Club

It is expected that the children use Bug Club to support to developing their reading skills at home. Books have been assigned to each child and can be accessed using under the 'Useful Links' section below. 



Each child has been given a Mathletics log on and password. Tasks have been assigned to your child and these need to be completed every week at home.


Muddy Mondays

Every child will need to bring in wellies,waterproof trousers and a waterproof coat with a hood every Monday for exploring our woodland area with Mr Mansfield in the morning.
