A Place to Learn Together

We offer Nursery Provision to Year 6


Year 2





Year 2 Children will be given a reading book appropriate for their stage of development twice a week and in addition, they may select a book of their choice. Please try to read for 10 minutes every day with your child and record this in the reading record book as we are working towards collecting items for their reading teds.


Fish words


Your child may bring home ‘fish words’. These are high frequency words, which your child needs to be able to instantly recognise by sight, to help their reading. As your child recognises the word they can colour it in on the fish.  When the fish is complete, please bring the sheet back to allow us to assess your child.  We can then send home the next fish sheet.

Please cut out the six words underneath the fish to keep at home and continue to practise with your child.



Spelling lists will be sent home weekly – these will be completed on Purple Mash.  A test will take place half termly.  



By the end of Year 2, most children will be expected to be able to count in multiples of 2,  3, 5, 10, recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 3,  5 and 10 multiplication tables. Please practise these at home.


Times tables Rockstars – please complete a minimum of two sessions a week at home.
