Summary of Learning

In maths we are learning to measure length using non-standard units.  We’ll also continue to add/subtract numbers within 10 and 20 using a wide range of problem-solving strategies.

Children have daily phonics lessons and are encouraged to practise taught sounds at home. We read a wide variety of stories every day and love children to share what they have been reading with you at home.

Our topic this term is Julia Donaldson which the children are really excited about.  We will be exploring many of Julia’s stories and will use these as a context for learning in writing, music and science.


P.E. Days

This term, primary 2 will be working with Determined to Dance every Monday!  Children look forward to showcasing their work at the end of term 3!

Our other P.E. day is Wednesday.   All jewellery should be removed on PE days. Please remember your soft shoes to wear in the dance studio.


Reading books are sent home every day.  Please read with your child and sign their homework diary.  Children will also bring home reading words – these should be practised every day for recognition.

Learning journeys are sent home every Thursday to be signed and returned on Friday. Learning journeys are an opportunity for children to share their learning with you from during the week – we encourage parents to add their own comments to these .

Achievements and celebrations

We celebrate a ‘Star of the Week’ in our class every Monday. We also celebrate ‘Worker of the Week’ and ‘Pupil of the Week’ for children who go above and beyond in school. These children enjoy ‘Hot Chocolate Friday’ with a member of senior management on a Friday afternoon.


During this term we will be developing our Spanish skills. We will be learning about how Semana Santa is celebrated in Guatemala.  Also, we will learn about the Seville Tapas Fair.  We will be learning some Spanish words including praising language, weather phrases and numbers.
