PE for Year 2 will be on a WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

All children can now come into school on this day in their full PE kit. This will be a plain white t-shirt, black bottoms and suitable footwear.



Children can continue to bring in their own water bottle, filled with WATER, that will remain on their desk all day for easy access when needed. PLEASE remind your child to bring home their bottle daily for washing and refilling yes 



We will be providing the children with a list of words on a Friday in their home spelling book. Please encourage them to practice these and then return them to school on a Friday ready for their test! These spellings will be linked to the Phonics curriculum as well as spellings that will help with their daily writing. We will be celebrating those children who beat their score each week!





All children will be bringing home a phonetically decodable book each week on a Friday. These books match the level the children are reading at and should be read with parental support. Children will also be bringing home a reading for pleasure book that the child has chosen to share happily with someone in your household smiley PLEASE ensure all books are returned by Thursday the following week. PLEASE take the time to read with your child every week at home and sign their reading record AT LEAST 3 times a week. This will be monitored by the teachers and dojo's will be awarded.

We love reading at St Luke's and our classroom is over flowing with so many wonderful books including fiction and non fiction. What ever you like to read, here in school we will have something for you!

It is so important to continue this love of reading at home. This could be on your own, with a friend or with a family member. Spending 30 minutes a day reading will really help to improve your reading skills and your vocabulary.


Homework will be being provided each week on a Friday. This will be in paper form for your child to complete.

PLEASE make sure this is completed over the weekend in your homework book.

There are additional activities that you can complete at home over the half term for extra DOJO POINTS!

What are we learning?


Want to see what you will be learning in Year 2? Have a look at the curriculum maps below which show the curriculum content and topics for each half term. They include the key topics, vocabulary and knowledge for each subject. You can also find key texts studied.


If you would like to look at the curriculum in more detail, head over to our curriculum page on the website. Click here to go there now.



Please find some curriculum information below. We hope this will help with conversations at home around the children's learning. 



In Maths this half term we will be focusing on a range of skills such as TELLING THE TIME, RECOGNISING FRACTIONS and RECOGNISING 2D AND 3D SHAPES. We will be reading analogue clocks and telling the time at O'clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past as well as beginning to tell the time to the nearest 5 minutes. We will be delving further into shape and understanding symmetry as well as finding the fraction of a shape or of a number.

These TopMarks games can help with their Maths fluency at home. They are free and good fun!



This half term we will be continuing to focus lots on our handwriting and the presentation of our work. Our text this half term will be 'Lizzie and the birds' where we will be writing predictions and detailed character descriptions. We will be building on using conjunctions within our writing as well as using some spelling rules for plurals and adding suffixes to words. This half term we will also be having a fun visit to Heaton Park and writing detailed recounts of our day.



In Science, we are learning about 'BUTTERFLIES'. We have an exciting opportunity to have our own caterpillars in the classroom which we will observe turning into butterflies. 




In Religious Education this half term our big question is 'Who is a Muslim and how do they live?'. We will be looking at the Islam religion and learning about beliefs and traditions as well as festivals. 

Always here to help!

If one of our pupils ever has a worry in school, they know that they can speak to one of the adults in their classroom or one of the designated safeguarding leaders (DSLs). The DSLs have their photographs displayed on posters all around school, including in the classroom.
