Y2 Chestnut

Welcome to Year 2 Chestnust!


Welcome to Year 2!


We are having lots of fun getting to know each other and we are ready to get stuck in with our learning. In year 2, we will learn lots of interesting and new things but most importantly, we like to have lots of fun! Your mental health and wellbeing is paramount to us. Therefore, we will be spending a lot of time completing activities that enable us to feel great and make us think about our own wellbeing and how important this is. This will include having numerous opportunities to talk out about our feelings and identifying all emotions.


In Year 2 we embrace growth. Our children learn that oopses and wobbles are necessary in order to challenge themselves and grow their brains to become the best independent learners they can be. 



You will find plenty of online games below, to help your children consolidate their learning at home. 

We will have many more exciting challenges this term and I am sure that your children will be eager to share what they have done in class, with you at home.  


Weekly Reminders

Please help us in school by remembering the following:


Children must arrive at school wearing their full school uniform. Please make sure all items of clothing are named. 


  • Monday- Friday- Bring your reading book and reading record to school each day.  
  • Monday- You must bring your homework book back to school. It will be handed out every Thursday. 
  • Thursday- Your child should arrive at school wearing their PE kit. This includes: yellow top, black shorts and PE pumps.

Curriculum Overviews


We will be uploading the half termly overviews that link to the areas of our curriculum and tell you the types of activities that we will be doing in school.


Y2 Book List




We understand that the mathematical methods taught in school may be different from what adults at home know and use. Use this link to find videos that explain the methods taught in school for each operation.




Phonics continues from Year 1, and in Year 2 children gain new skills and enhance their current phonics skills. I would like draw your attention to Mini Writers Club on Instagram. They have lots of handy explanations (like the ones below) and activity ideas, so why not take a look. 

Yr2 Expectations- Here is a copy of the Year 2 expectations - this covers what children will be learning throughout the year in Reading, Writing and Maths.
