Prayer for a New School Year 

Lord Jesus,

I ask for Your help as I begin this new school year.

Allow me to experience Your presence in the many blessings You put before me.

Open my eyes to the new challenges and exciting opportunities that this new school year brings.

Open my heart and mind to new friends and new teachers.

Open my heart so I will be enthusiastic in my lessons 

Give me courage to accept new opportunities.

Help me to listen to my teachers.

Jesus, inspire me to do my best this year!



Happy New Year to you all. You should have received a text message (4.1.21) to inform you that the school will only be open to key worker and vulnerable children from 5th January 2021.



Welcome to Year 2

In year 2, we love to learn new things and build on the skills and talents God has given us. Our class page is a way of showing you what we have been learning  in our lessons whilst also informing you about important things that might be coming up during the weeks and months ahead. 


Please visit our class page regularly to see who our star of the week is, what we'll be learning about in English and Maths along with all of the other wonderful things that we do in Year 2!


Mrs Woodley and I are really excited to be your teachers. We have some catching up to do but we will get there! 


Change from Monday 19th October -

Just a reminder that the children's Y2 bubble are to come into school at 8.55am and finish school at 3.20pm  (12.55pm on a Friday) until further notice. The entrance to/from school is still the gate for our playground. If you need to give any messages to either of us please telephone the office and these will be passed onto us (in line with the COVID 19 school guidance).


Christmas Holidays

After almost 7 weeks, the Christmas holidays are here and it will give us all a wonderful opportunity to relax before the new year. The holiday dates as follows:


Break up:  Friday 18th December 2020 at 12.55pm

Return:    Tuesday 5th January 2021 at 8.55am for key worker and vulnerable children only.

Phonics Check

Year 2, have nearly all taken the phonics check this week - 30th November to 4th December which replaced the original date in June that was cancelled due to the Coronavirus. Any child that has missed the test due to illness will be tested before we break up for Christmas.


If your child needs to revisit the test, in June 2021, we will be continuing to practise everyday throughout the rest of the year with those children. 


If you have passed the phonics then you will not have a phonics reading book from January 2021.


We completed lots of catch up phonic sessions building up to the check but please practice your sounds everyday. If you want to find the resources then click on the link below.


We have also been using in class 

which is the 'Letters and Sounds for Home and School' for the Y2 autumn term phonics screen check revision sessions. If you wish to support your child then this is great for revising what we are doing in class.


Year 2 Class Wish 

In Class, on 4th September, we created our class wish for this academic year. The children came up with the wording and I think it reflects exactly what a beautiful class of children they are. 




What are we doing next week in Year 2?

Whilst the school is in lockdown there is a new timetable that can be found in the remote learning section. The work below will be completed once we return to the classroom.


For the first week of the school return after lockdown the children will work on

Self Isolating?

There are lots of resources for Maths and English if you are at home due to either illness or self isolating. Just look under the tabs below for the latest activities and put the work on the class blog so we can all see what work you've been doing...


There are daily lessons for both Maths and English so you can keep up with what we are doing in class.
