Community, Courage, Curiosity and Commitment

Welcome to Year 2 

September 2021:

A warm welcome to the new Year 2 parents. We have settled in well and already completed some display work looking at our class community. Community is our value for the autumn term.

Below you will find out what spellings and maths activities have been set for homework. I will aim to add photos of what we have been getting up to on here as well.

If you have any queries, please see me at the end of the day or drop an email to

Miss Searle

Here are some ideas I found for nursery rhyme costumes - for Friday 24th September.


We have had fun in the sun at the start of term doing a team obstacle course and playing tag games with Colchester Utd.


There will be spelling assignments put on spelling shed each week. The children access this using the same log in details as before.

I have also added the common exception words as an ongoing assignment for the whole year - pace yourself with these!

Spellings to be tested on 24th September 2021 are below.



We will spend the next few weeks making sure the children have the correct level reading book. This takes time; it may be that your child will stay on their current level or move up. We will let you know this via the reading records. Please try to sign these when you have heard your child read, as it helps us know if they have read.

We have PE on Monday and Tuesday so please come in dressed ready for PE.
