Summer Term 2024 

Year 2

Welcome to Summer term in Year 2. Here you will find all the information you’ll need for the Summer term.

Please continue to encourage your child to walk up the steps from the KS1 playground by themselves in the morning as this really helps them develop their independence and self-help skills.  We will be at the top of the steps to greet them.  If you need to let us know about any changes to collection arrangements please email us or use the small whiteboards on the outside of the classroom window.


This term we shall continue reading the novel we started just before Easter; The Boy Who Grew Dragons. The children are really enjoying this funny tale about a boy and his grandad who grew a Drang! Reading will continue to be an important part of our day with weekly guided reading sessions and reading comprehension lessons alongside individual reading throughout the week. Please continue to read at home as much as possible and talk about and enjoy books with others. Reading books will not be changed daily – it is crucial to fully understand the texts so re-reading them is really important, especially for children taking book quizzes. Please bring your reading book and reading diaries to school every day. This is to enable us to read at school, change books and monitor your child’s reading progress. Our library day is Friday.





As writers, we will be writing our own finding stories, inspired by The Magic Brush. We will expand on this story by learning how to write information based on an imaginary non-fiction text ‘Chang’s Town’. We will also write some non-fiction work linked to our topic Coastlines. We will continue to reinforce our ‘every time’ toolkit for writing; these are the things we need to remember to do every time we write (to use punctuation, finger spaces, neat handwriting and to spell common words correctly.)


As mathematicians, we will be finishing our learning on measuring mass, capactiy and temperature then starting to learn about fractions. Keep an eye on our home learning page for things you can do at home to support your child’s learning in maths.

Project Learning

We will be starting the term with our new geography topic, Coastlines. We will be learning about the physical and human features of our local coastline, together with some history about out town and the important work the RNLI do to keep people safe at sea and at the beaches.  Our other projects this term include Beach Hut, Plant Survival, Flower Head, Habitats and Animal Survival.



We will be planning an exciting trip, full details to follow.

Physical Education

Our PE lessons will be on Tuesday afternoons.  Please make sure that children come into school in their PE kits on Tuesdays. As the weather warms up, please make sure your child has a sun hat and sun screen has been applied. Please make sure water bottles are in school everyday too.  Please also ensure all belongings are labelled with your child’s name.

Home Learning

Please check the Home Learning section of our website every Friday so your child can practise their spellings and mental maths ready for the test the following Friday. Don’t forget to also have a look at the class blog, where photos and learning are uploaded each week.

Please contact us at or if you have any questions, messages or anything to celebrate. It’s great to hear from you.
