Welcome to Year 2


Home Learning Due - Thursday 20th June

Science Week 17th June

In view of next week being science week, we would like the children to think about scientific enquiry;

  • asking simple questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways
  • observing closely, using simple equipment
  • performing simple tests
  • identifying and classifying
  • using their observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions
  • gathering and recording data to help in answering questions.


For home learning, we would like the children to choose and complete their own science investigation. Use this website to help you with some simple science ideas to try at home.

Encourage the children to think of the question that they would like to answer. They can carry out a simple test and record it in their home learning books. In science we learn to write a question, write a prediction (what we think will happen), write a method (what we will do), draw a labelled diagram and write a conclusion (what actually happened). Children can record it this way or they could simply have those discussions whilst enjoying the science and sticking a picture or a diagram in the book.

Year 2 writing expectations


Here are some of the things the children should include in their writing;

  • full stops, capital letters and use question marks when required

  • Use past tense mostly correctly and consistently

  • Use conjunctions (and/or/ but/ when/ if/ that/ because)

  • segment spoken words into phonemes and represent these by graphemes, spelling many of these words correctly and making phonically-plausible attempts at others

  • spell many core words correctly


Children doing more than is expected should;


  • write effectively and coherently, drawing on their reading to inform the vocabulary and grammar of their writing

  • make simple additions, revisions and proof-reading corrections to their own writing

  • use the punctuation taught at key stage 1 mostly correctly ( ! , ’ ? )

  • spell most core words

  • add suffixes to spell most words correctly in their writing (e.g. –ment, –ness, –ful, –less, –ly)

A new topic has been loaded to Maths with Parents. You will now find 'Division by sharing' activities and games for the children to complete. Please remember that these do not have to be recorded or handed in to school.
