Year 2 parent Meeting

Thank you so much to everyone who attended our 'Year 2 Meet the Teacher' meeting. We hope that you found this useful and that it answered any questions you may have. We know that some adults could not make the meeting due to work or other commitments so here are the slides for you to read through.

If you have any questions please contact a member of staff from Year 2.

Many thanks

Someone builds the dream!

What a dreamy start we have had to year 2! We have really enjoyed being inspired by the book 'Someone Builds the Dream'. We have thought carefully about our different hopes and dreams for the future. We have also enjoyed having a go at a variety of jobs like being architects, builders and artists! 

We hope you enjoy these photos of the bridges that we designed and made. Each bridge was planned, built and tested for its strength. We used a toy car to test how well they worked. Well done year 2 smiley

Things to know for September...


PE DAYS Please come to school in your PE uniform on a Thursday (indoor PE) and Friday (outdoor PE).


Diaries will be checked on a Friday. We will count your child's reads from a Friday to the following Thursday. Please remember to record your child's 3 reads each week!


Meet the teacher - Monday 13th September at 3pm. More details to come nearer the time.


After the first 2 weeks, we will be starting our topic for the half term. 


Can you guess what it might be from the clues below?

  • One of our stories includes a girl, her grandma and a wolf.

  • You will need to know how to make something grow.

  • You should beware of a creature with purple prickles all over its back!
