Wooden Hill Primary and Nursery School

Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

We are really looking forward to welcoming all the children into Year 2.

Our topic this half term is ‘The Great Fire of London’. We will explore this in detail through our English, History and Geography lessons. In Science, we will be learning about materials, linking this to our topic when we look at materials that the houses were made from. In maths we will be looking at place value and will begin to look at addition and subtraction methods, building upon the learning from Year 1.

Our PE days will be Monday and Thursday. Please send your child to school on these days in their PE kit. Any earrings will need to be removed or covered before school.

Your child will read in school as often as possible so please ensure that they have their reading folder in school every day. We would strongly encourage daily reading at home and ask that you record any reading activities in your child’s reading record. These will be checked weekly on book change day.

To support learning at home, children will also have access to Spelling Shed to practise spellings, Times Table Rock Stars to practise times tables and Oxford Owl to support their phonics and reading learning. These details can be found in the front cover of their Reading record book.

If you have any queries relating to your child's learning then please come and speak to us or contact us at

Thank you

Mrs Andrews, Miss Rees and Mrs Sawford
