Y2 Chestnut

Welcome to Year 2 Chestnut!


Welcome to Year 2 Chestnut!


Welcome to our class page where you will find information about our learning, pictures of things we have been up to and important documents about Year 2 expectations. 


We are now well into our school year and getting stuck into our learning. There are many more exciting topics and themes planned for the rest of the year. The children will continue with a daily Read Write Inc. lesson to target their phonics. Then in our English lesson we will be diving into some texts by the same author, exploring patterns and discussing similarities and differences. In Maths we will continue to embed out understanding of place value when we practise using calculation methods to solve problems. Our Science topic is 'materials' a great opportunity to investigate the properties of different materials and learn about their everyday uses. Further details of our learning can be found in our half termly curriculum posters below. There are also some links to online games to help your child consolidate their learning at home. 


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.  
  • Tuesday- If you have a homework book you must bring it back to school. Online homework will be due also. Homework, both in book and online, is set every Thursday. 
  • Wednesday/Friday- Your child should arrive at school wearing their PE kit. This includes: white top, black shorts and PE pumps.
