Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely summer holiday. This page contains useful information for the year ahead.

The teacher in Year 2 is Mr Allcock. The teaching assistants are Mrs Devane, Mrs Greenwood and Mrs Moorfield.


Homework will be given out on Friday and is due in for Thursday the next week. Homework will mostly consist of spellings and mental math, as this is a huge proportion of the year 2 curriculum. It is advised that you practice these with your children regularly.

Reading Books

Your child has been given a reading book to take home. Reading expectations are very high in Year 2, so it advised that children are read with every night.

Snack/ Water

Snack money is 20p per day or £1 for the week. There will be a pot on the table as your child enters the classroom. We ask that children write their own name on the list to show that they have paid for snack. All children have access to fruit at play time in addition to this.

Please provide your child with a labelled water bottle. These can only be filled with water (not juice!).


The children take part in PE lessons on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Our PE kit consists of a white shirt, black shorts and appropriate footwear. For the hall, children will need black pumps. When the weather permits we will be going outside. Please provide your child with some suitable outdoor trainers.

Class Dojo

You will receive a letter containing a code to access dojos. Here you will see the rewards and sanctions your child has received during the day. Other comments will appear on there too. Please bear with me if messages are not answered straight away, as I am learning to use this myself.


Our topic this half term is the great fire of London. We encourage children to share things they have learnt at home or to bring in books to show the class on our topic.
