 Year 2 Information

Mrs Blackbourn and Mrs Crampton would like to welcome you to Year 2 at St John the Baptist Primary School.

As class teachers we work as part of a dedicated team and are supported in the delivery of the curriculum.

PE days

In Year two we have indoor and outdoor PE lessons throughout the year so children will need the following PE kit:

  • plain white PE T-shirt
  • navy/black PE shorts
  • plimsolls
  • long sleeved navy/black sweatshirt top
  • black/navy tracksuit/jogging bottoms (not leggings)
  • trainers

Both classes have PE lessons on Mondays and Fridays. If children have long hair, this needs to be tied back for safety reasons and any child with earrings will need to be able to remove them independently or come to school without them in on those days.

Other Useful items to keep in school

  • Spare socks to keep in PE bags (especially girls if they wear tights in the winter).
  • Spare underwear in case of accidents.
  • An old T-shirt or large shirt for ‘messy’ activities.

Learning in Year 2

We believe that children learn better when they link their ideas and learning together across different subjects. We have overall themes each term to help them with this and most areas of the curriculum are incorporated into this main theme. Please take time to look through other tabs within this Year 2 page as we have made links to useful sites to help your child to develop their skills and understanding for our curriculum.

 We appreciate the support that you as parents give us in many ways such as helping children with their homework tasks or coming into school to help. We want your child to be content in school and reach their full potential so please do not hesitate to come and see us if there is anything you wish to speak to us about.

Term 6 News

Term 6 is a busy term in Year 2; we have plenty of activities for the children to look forward to relating to our Dinosaur Park theme.

These are some of the important dates you should know about:

  • Week beginning 19th June - Arts Week

This is a whole school themed week. In Year 2 we have a felt-making artist who will come to work with the children to create a masterpiece linked to our Year 2 theme work this year.

  • 28th June - Dinosaur Vehicle Day

Children are going to design and make a vehicle for the Dinosaur Park. On this day, we would like to welcome adult helpers to come in and help children to make axles for their vehicles. More information will follow soon, but if you are able to help for any amount of time on this day, we would be very grateful.

  • 7th July - Dino Lunch Day

Children are going to design a special Dinosaur Themed lunch for themselves for this day and then prepare these lunches to eat. You will not need to order a hot school meal for this day.
