General Class Information

  • Class Teacher – Miss Walker 
  • Other adults in Lilac Class: Miss Wharton 


PE is outside on a Tuesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. When we have PE children should attend school in their PE kit so we do not need to change. 



  • Reading

  • Children will have 2 books. They will take home 1 on a Friday and then return this to school on the following Friday. They will also have another book which will stay at school in their tray and this is what they will read in school.

  • Maths
    • Weekly tasks are set on MyMaths (link below)
    • Children are working towards their Bronze times tables award (2s, 5s and 10s)  and some are working on Silver, and can use TTRockstars to help them. A letter with their logins will be sent home on the first day.
  • Spellings
    • Children should practise their Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words regularly. These are shown below and were included in the letter sent home on the first day.
    • Regular weekly spellings will be reviewed in line with Covid-19 guidelines and sent home at a later date.
  • CGP books
    • Children have a Maths and a Grammar homework book. 1 of these will be given out each Monday and the pages that children need to do are listed on the inside of the front cover. These books must be returned to school on the following Monday.


As well as your weekly spellings, please practise the spellings below as you should know all of these by the end of Year 2!

During Autumn 2 we have had lots of fun! 
We have been completing many different scientific experiments and pieces of art. The children have enjoyed exploring different textures with our hands. We have discovered what creates the best bubbles and we have been creating lots of artwork inspired by Carl Warner and Kandinsky.
