Year 2

Mr Hughes

Year 2 class teacher

Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page!

"Learning and growing together!”

I really hope you all had a lovely Easter break, and the children are ready to pick up where they left off! As our final term of the school, year begins, I feel so grateful that I get to further facilitate the Year 2 pupils’ learning. I simply cannot wait to continue to help them to develop academically, socially and emotionally. There are plenty of new concepts and content to introduce in summer term of Year 2, and an abundance of memorable learning experiences too.

Each day, we expect our pupils to show our ACORN (ambition, creativity, ownership, resilience and nurture) values in all that they do, showing mutual respect and tolerance to one another.

To view our Year 2 curriculum overview, please see the files section at the bottom of this page. This document will outline the topics for each term, for each area of the curriculum.

In addition to this, you will find the Year 2 summer term timetable and our summer term knowledge organisers.

Key Information


Our pupil’s should arrive at school in full school uniform, including suitable all-black footwear. Please can you ensure that your child's uniform is clearly labelled with their name. We will always encourage children to be responsible for their own belongings whilst in school.


At Palace Fields, we have set the expectation that children are reading at home every day, as well as having their reading books in school with them every day. Our library is open to the children every break time for them to take books out, and then swap them, once they have finished. Personally, I would love to see the children bringing in their own books so that we can continue to build a positive reading culture in Year 2!


Homework will be set on a Thursday with the expectation that it will be back in school the following Tuesday. Alongside our homework each week, I will be setting a stand-alone homework quest that should be completed over the course of a few weeks - details can be found at the bottom of this page, along with our curriculum map!


The children will be developing their knowledge and skills in Invasion Games and Athletics on Monday and Tuesday. Children are expected to have full PE kit for every lesson (ie. plain white top, navy/black shorts and trainers/pumps). 


Snack is available in school (milk and toast). If your child is having snack, we ask that it is brought in on Monday morning in an envelope with your child's name and the amount clearly shown. For both milk and toast, it is £3.00 for the week (60p per day).

Water Bottles

We encourage children to bring a bottle of water to school daily to keep them hydrated throughout their lessons. The children will have many opportunities throughout the day to have a drink of water. Please remember that juice is not permitted in water bottles stored in class but may be consumed with their snack at break time and packed lunch at lunchtime.
