Year 2

Where children become GENIUSES!

Our teacher is Miss Newhouse and our amazing teaching assistant is Miss Wade . Miss Newhouse always wants us to be the best we can be and reach our full potential in everything that we do! We know that it is OK to make mistakes and that this is part of our learning journey.

In Class 2 we love to take our learning outside for all of our subjects! Especially to inspire us and give us lots of amazing ideas for our writing. We also love reading and make time each day to share our favourite books with our class.

We always have very exciting and interesting topics, which allow us to become explorers, authors, teachers, scientists, mathematicians and artists!

How your child learns at home is very important to us; you can email us with any pictures or videos.

Check out our gallery with all our pictures of being in Class 2.


In our English lessons we cover a wide range of learning including reading, writing, spelling, phonics and grammar.

We change our text type every two to three weeks so make sure you check your Marvellous Me messages to see what new text type we are learning about.  We are all working hard this half-term to write exciting recounts full of time connectives and verbs.


This half-term we are focusing on shapes and money. The children have explored folding 2D paper shapes to make lines of symmetry and sorting shapes based on how many vertices they have. 

Topic News

One day Miss Wade came into class saying something had happened in Woodlands. We went out to investigate and noticed a shelter had been built and it looked like a fire had just been put out. The children think an unknown animal has been living in the woodlands! Our topic question is, ‘What is a mythical creature?’ I wonder what we will learn over the next few weeks?
