St Joseph'sCatholic Primary School & Nursery

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2


Miss Bishop is our Teacher.


Mrs Crenol is our class Teaching Assistant, she works Tuesday-Friday.

Miss Cooper teaches us from 10am until lunchtime on a Wednesday.

Mrs Speed teaches us on Wednesday afternoon.


Our topic this term is On this day...
Please have a look at our Topic Web to see an overview of some of the exciting things we will get up to!


This will be handed out on a Friday and is due back on Wednesdays. The homework will be linked to what the children have been learning about that week or will prepare them for what they are about to learn.

The 'Multiplication and Division Challenge' takes place on a Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Speed. The children are speed tested for 3 minutes on their times tables (one per week e.g. 2s) and once they score high enough will move on to learn the next times table. This is to improve the children's fluency. There will be practice sheets for the children to take home if they desire- which we will be encouraging!

Spellings are also handed out on Fridays ready for a test the following Friday. Please make sure the children are practising their spellings every week.


Class Assembly

Our Class Assembly will be on Friday 20th October 2017 at 9am. Please feel free to come and watch!



The Presentation List went home on Tuesday 5th September. The presentation can be anything up to 10 minutes long and be about something of interest to your child. These presentations take the place of show and tell and are only in-front of the class. 

We have settled in well to Year 2 and are loving our new classroom!

Week Beginning 11th September

WOW! What a busy week we have had in Year 2! We kicked off the week with our first swimming lesson and we were an absolute credit to Year 2! We celebrated Roald Dahl Day on Wednesday and designed and made chocolates and golden tickets! We've started our work on place value in Maths and have been practicing our fluency, reasoning and problem solving! We're continuing to label and write captions in English, this week we've been using adjectives and because to make our writing better! In Topic we have learnt about the Plague, located London on a map of the U.K and started reading about the Great Fire of London! In RE we've been writing our own morning prayers and psalms and thinking about why Christians pray in the morning.

A jam packed first full week back in Year 2, let's see what next week brings!

Week beginning 18th September

We have had another very busy week this week! We started the week with our weekly Swimming lesson and Miss Bishop was so impressed with our behaviour and effort levels! In English we have been using adjectives to make our writing even better. We have also learnt how to use a comma in a list. In Maths we are continuing our work on Place Value and have looked at how we can represent numbers using dienes and pictures and how we can put numbers onto a number line to count and order them! In Topic we did some comparative writing, comparing London in 1666 to London now. We have written our own class Psalms and Liturgys in RE this week too. We had a DT Morning on Tuesday Morning with Mr Fisher's class and painted our cardboard boxes to look like the houses in the Great Fire of London in 1666 (see pictures below)! We will be taking these and burning them as part of our WOW day on Thursday 5th October!
