Year 2 Spellings
Year Two Statutory Spellings
Below are the Year Two statutory spellings. These are covered in class and also through the weekly spelling tests but any additional practise will help the children become confident with the Year Two spellings. Repetition and application is key when it comes to children remembering their spellings. Thank you for your ongoing support with this.
The half termly spelling overviews will be stuck into the back of each child’s reading record.
Here are some different techniques you could try to help with learning your spellings.

Our learning in English and Maths
Symmetry - Autumn 2023
We have been learning about symmetry in Year 2. The children enjoyed working in pairs to make symmetrical patterns with Numicon.
Science - habitats (Autumn 2023)
Year 2 visited Coxley Woods to investigate if it would make a good home for a badger and a hedgehog. The children looked for areas where the animals would be able to make their shelters. The children enjoyed exploring microhabitats to look for minibeasts that hedgehogs and badgers might eat.
Art - Autumn 2023
During our visit to Coxley Woods, the children collected leaves, twigs, seeds and other interesting natural materials. Back in the classroom, they worked collaboratively to create this natural art masterpiece.
Black History Month - Autumn 2023
As part of our learning for Black History Month, the children learnt about the life and work of Edward Tingatinga. They looked closely as his artwork and created their own pieces using the same bold colours, shapes and patterns.
Activity Day - Autumn 2023
All of the children really enjoyed inviting their grown ups to activity day where they enjoyed different activities such as roller bikes, making cheesecakes, clay work, friendships bracelets and boot camp. Here are a few photos of some the Year 2 children.
