Year 2

16/09/2020 Please see below spelling lists for this half term. The children will be tested on their spellings each Friday. Please help your child to learn their weekly spellings using look, cover, write, check. Spellings are differentiated to suit your childs phonics phase. In order of groupings below: Pink and yellow, Blue and Orange and Green. Thank you for your continued support in helping your child reach their Year 2 targets in writing.



Welcome to Year 2! It's great to have you back!

The Year 2 children have settled back in to school and the new classroom routines beautifully. I have already, been blown away by some of the fantastic work being produced so early on in the year; A FANTASTIC START! Keep it up year 2!

On our first day back at Northwood we discussed some of the things that have stayed the same since back in March and some of the things that have changed and may seem a little bit different this year. The children all seem very happy with their new classroom and are ready and raring to go.


We have started the term off reading some much loved classics, such as 'Peace at Last', 'Rosie's Walk' and 'Five minutes peace'. As our writing focus for this half term, we are looking at stories with familiar settings, these will include 'Dogger' by Shirley Hughes and 'Gorilla' by Anthony Browne. Both fantastic texts!


In Maths we have begun looking at adding multiples of tens and being able to partition numbers into tens and ones- recognising the place value of each digit in a 2-digit number. By the end of the first half term we hope to have begun work on Multiplication and Division. Please practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s with your children at home as this will help them to achieve their targets in these areas.


 Check back soon to see some photos of what we have been up to. Best wishes and thank you all for your continued support. 

The year 2 team!

Group 2 looked in the computer suite.

Group 3 tried the hall.

Group 4 went into the playground.

Group 5 looked in the lower Key Stage 2 toilets.

P.E. Dance. Year 2 were lucky enough to have a dance teacher visit us and teach us how to link in our topic work (Living things and their habitats) with dance.

Living things and their habitats. (science) 19.09.2019. This week Year 2 have been looking around the school grounds for things that are living, were once alive and have never been alive. This is what we found...
