Year 2 Class

Welcome to Year 2

Year 2 is made up of two classes: Chestnut and Beech.


Mrs Griffiths teaches Chestnut class.


Mrs Staveley and Miss Hollingsworth teach Beech class.


We also have five fantastic teaching assistants in the year two team: Miss Morrell, Mrs Deyes, Miss Chamberlain, Miss Bassett and Mrs Smith.

In Year 2, PE is taught every Wednesday.

Please ensure your child has their named PE kit in school all week.

Forest School and Outdoor Classroom

In Year 2, all children take part in learning activities outside the classroom twice a week with Mrs Brining and Miss Fail. Please ensure they have the appropriate clothing for the time of year and named wellington boots.


Every half term, your child will receive a homework matrix. These activities are mostly linked to subjects covered in class. We ask that one task is completed per week (you don’t have to do all nine!) and that you initial and date each activity completed. Evidence of homework can be glued into children’s books, photographs tweeted or emailed to us, or items brought into school! We will collect homework books in on a Wednesday morning.


We are a reading school and actively encourage reading throughout the week. As well as the reading pupils enjoy at school, we would also like children to read to an adult at home at least three times per week.


Spellings can be found in the children’s spelling books weekly. We encourage children to learn all of their spellings at home and to apply the spelling pattern in their writing. KS1 common exception words can be found in the back of homework books and in the homework box below. Children are expected to spell all of these words accurately by the end of Spring term in Year 2.
