Mrs Case

Welcome to Year 2!! 

Teacher: Mrs Case

Teaching Assisstant: Miss Byron


We have an exciting few weeks planned for you as we will research animals and humans, discover where we live and keep an eye on a mischievous troll and his trusted companion. 


This term we will be covering two full topics in science and geography: animals, including humans and where do we live?. Children will need to use all their investigation skills to determine how to minimise the spread of germs, as well as compare what happens to offspring as they grow older. Please email a picture of your child to [email protected], the children will be investigating how they have changed from a baby to a child. We will learn more about the UK. It's four countries, their capital cities and the three surrounding seas. We will also remember the 7 continents and 5 oceans. 


A full PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, red shorts and pumps. We will have PE every Wednesday afternoon. 


At our school reading is a priority and considered the most important skill when learning and moving through the school. However, to help our children achieve and become high quality readers we need support from parents. Every child must read for 10 minutes every night with a phonics book provided from school every Friday. 

We always hope to inspire children to love reading by providing them with a story from our school library. Having a chance to read this would be a start to helping children love reading.

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy. 

Forest school

We have Forest school every Tuesday where the children will come in in their own clothes, we will go out in rain or sunshine! Wellies and coats will be needed over the winter months!
