Welcome to Year 2


We are thrilled to welcome you to Year 2. We ensure a positive working environment where children try their best, work hard and strive to adhere to our school rules and values. We encourage children in Year 2 to take greater responsibility for their belongings and organisation, focusing on developing their confidence and drive to become independent learners. We follow the school’s Behaviour System Policy which focuses on positive reinforcement, values rewards, marble rewards, individual rewards and sanctions. This policy can be found on our website (Home>Our school>Policies).




Year 2 Autumn Term

Year 2 Spring Term



GO WILD for Reading is Longfleet's brilliant home reading reward scheme for pupils in Reception and Key Stage 1. Children will have followed this scheme during their time in Year 1 and will continue to challenge themselves by reading as frequently as possible at home, colouring in 'WILD' letters and aiming to collect pin badges to celebrate their accomplishments this year. We encourage every child to develop a love of books and, as it is such an essential life skill, we expect all of our children to read a minimum of three times a week at home and to record these reads in their Reading Records. Thank you for your support with this. 

  • Children must have their Reading Records and books in school every day.
  • Reading records will be checked every Friday.
  • Children will change their own books each Friday

Year 2 'Must Read' Books

Above are a selection of our 'Must Read' books that we enjoy throughout the year in Year 2. These are high quality texts that we feel will enrich our children's reading experiences as well as help to take them on a varied reading journey throughout their time at primary school. By the end of Year 2, all of the children will have heard and enjoyed these books in class but they may wish to add them to their own collection at home. Re-reading and discussing favourite books is such a valuable part of the reading experience and something that can also be enjoyed as a family. Happy reading! 

Home Learning


In Year 2, children will be given spellings to learn each week. These will be stuck in their purple homework books. Spellings will be given out and tested on Tuesdays. 


For maths, we would like to invite children to complete 3 Numbots sessions online each week (approx. 15 minutes each). We will track the children's progress on Numbots and celebrate their achievements in class. We will also celebrate the  ‘Superstar Collector’ (most stars earned),  ‘Highest Earner of Coins’ and ‘Excellent Effort Award’ from each class. 


As above, please continue to read with your child at home a minimum of 3 times a week and record this in their Reading Records.
