Holgate Primary and Nursery

year 2

Welcome to Year 2 

In Year 2, we have 2 classes: 2JB and 2ST.  

Adults that work in Year 2 are:  

  • Mrs Bardgett (2JB class teacher) 
  • Mrs Thompson (2ST class teacher) 
  • Mrs Clarke (Teaching Assistant) 
  • Mrs Humphreys (HLTA – in Year 2 every Wednesday) 

Have a look through our page for ideas and activities on the curriculum we follow and links and guidance to additional resources to enable you to help you to contribute to your child’s learning. 


Although PE kits need to be in school every day, for this half term, PE is on: 

2JB  2ST
Tuesday – Indoor PE Tuesday – Indoor PE
Monday – Outdoor PE Monday – Outdoor PE


Learning in Year 2 

The expectation in Year 2 is that: -

  • All children know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables and can apply their understanding to problems
  • Children will begin develop their understanding of fractions
  • Children will begin to join their handwriting.
  • By the end of Year 2, children should be able to read and accurately spell words from this spelling list.  

Throughout the school year, we will work on different Curriculum Vehicles. A vehicle is the theme or idea which drives our learning. Our first Curriculum Vehicle of this school year is called: Where could this ticket take you?  

Click here to download a knowledge organiser to help support your child throughout this Curriculum Vehicle. This gives you useful information linked to the work that we are doing in class - our vehicle. You will see the areas we will be covering, some “sticky” knowledge that we would like the children to learn, useful books to read and share with your child, key vocabulary and a few ideas of websites to visit. 

It would be really supportive of your child’s learning in school if you could talk to them throughout this half term about the information on here and about what they have been doing in class.


Generally, Homework will go out on a Friday and need to be handed in the following Thursday.  

Maths will often be set on Mathletics.  

English will include (but are not limited to): Spellings and written work (this may be a reading comprehension or grammar work) 

We would encourage children to try to read for at least 10 minutes a day. More information about your child’s reading level can be found in their pupil organisers.
