Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Class teachers: Ms Cartmill and Miss Driver

Please see below for key information and documents (newsletters, expectations of year 2 children, topic overviews). 

See below for the latest newsletter. There are a new exciting homework challenges!


We are currently learning how to write postcards which the children are really excited about.

We are continuing to use:


  • Writing on the line
  • Using finger spaces
  • Using SMALL full stops
  • Using top to bottom capitals
  • Starting each letter on the line (using lead in lines)
  • Using full stops at the end of each complete sentence
  • Using a capital letter at the beginning of every sentence

To help your child start/practise using lead in lines, please see the sheet attached below.


Adding WITH regrouping


We are currently learning about fractions.

We are focusing on finding and representing:

  • 1/2, 1/3, 1/4
  • 2/4, 3/4

Understanding the equivalence of 1/2 and 2/4

We are doing this by looking at shapes, logos, objects, amounts of things and numbers.

What is 1/2 of 8?     If I had 1/4 of 24 apples, how many would I have?

Would you rather have 1/3 of £32 or 1/4 of £36?
