Year 2

We've been learning makaton! Article 23

In 'What's In The News?' we have been learning about how people who have difficulty hearing, can use Makaton which is a type of sign language, to help them communicate. This links to Article 23- A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life.
It was Kaytlin's birthday so we thought it was an ideal opportunity to practice singing Happy Birthday to her using MakatOn!

Look at what we've been doing! Article 29

Look at the fun activites we have been doing to develop our personalities, talents and abilities-Article 29

We have been learning about Victorians in History and comparing their life style with ours. We were shocked to find out that children had to work when they were the same age as us! In our school, we are aware of the rights of children and we know that we should not do anything, including work, that is dangerous or might harm our health, development or education (Article 32). Some poor Victorian children didn't go to school, we are so lucky that now all children have the right to an education (Article 28).

Welcome to Year 2!

Miss Burns (Y2B)




Our topic for Autumn 1 is 'What's down the well?'. This is a Science based topic. For more details see attached topic overview. Please encourage your child to do their own research into areas they are particularly interested in. Your child is welcome to bring into class anything of interest they find out about the topic.


P.E is on a Monday morning for Y2B. Please make sure your child has their P.E kit which includes a red top, black shorts and plimsoles.

Swimming is every Wednesday morning at 8:45am. Please bring your child to the swimming pool where a member of staff will be waiting for you. If your child is at Breakfast Club, a member of staff will collect your child from the hall and walk to the swimming pool to meet the other children.

If your child can not attend swimming please let a member of staff know.


Please send book bags in every day even if your child has not finished reading their book and if your child has read their book please can you comment on what they did well and what they might need support on so we can work on this at school.


Homework and spellings are sent home every Thursday. Please return homework on the following Wednesday. This will allow us time to check and set the following week's homework. If homework is not brought back to school, your child will be kept in at break and lunch till it is done.


If you have any questions, please leave an email at the bottom of this page and I will get back with you as soon as they can.


Thank you
