Welcome to Year 2 AL

Hello and welcome to Class 2AL!



Our class teacher is Mr Logan and our teaching assistant is Mrs Styles. In addition, Mr Partridge teaches us on a Tuesday afternoon and Ms Fleming teaches us every other Wednesday afternoon.


In our class the rules and expectations are built around the core values of our school.


  • Sharing
  • Trust
  • Achievement
  • Respect
  • Safety


English Information

Reading is crucial in everything that children do. We aim to nurture a love of reading and encourage children to read a wide range of texts. We monitor children’s reading at home through the Home School Diaries and they are rewarded with bookmarks and stickers. It is a whole school expectation that children read five times per week. We teach reading through guided reading sessions in school each day where we spend time reading and analysing texts within a small group situation.




Maths Information

The principal focus of mathematics teaching in Year 2 is to ensure that children become increasingly fluent with whole numbers, fractions and the four operations, including number facts and the concept of place value. This should ensure that children develop efficient written and mental methods and perform calculations accurately. Children should also develop their ability to solve a range of problems and develop mathematical reasoning. By the end of year 2, pupils should be fluent with the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and be able to use these in a variety of situations. Discrete Maths lessons are taught on a daily basis and additional time is used each morning for arithmetic skills and key number facts to be practised.


PE and Kit Information

Our PE day is a Thursday. It is really important that the children have a suitable PE kit in school on our PE days so that they can participate fully in the activities.

The PE kit is as follows:

Navy shorts, white polo shirt, white socks, navy joggers, navy jumper and trainers.  (Please note: sun hats will be needed during the summer)

All items of the PE kit should be clearly labelled and kept in a PE bag with the child’s name on the outside.



There will be 2 pieces of homework to be completed each week. We will be using a digital portfolio called ‘Seesaw’ once a week for either English or Maths homework. The other piece of homework will either be in a yellow homework folder or a page from the white CGP Maths books. The children will also need to learn the 2, 5 and 10 times tables by heart to use in their Maths work this year. Reading remains a priority and we expect the children to read at least 5 times a week with an adult. It is really important that the children are encouraged to complete homework independently but then supported when necessary.


Unlocking Learning

All children have a Phonics Bug, Education City, Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed login and these resources can be used at home to encourage further learning. Please support your child in using the following websites:
