Year 2

 Welcome to Year 2!


Burgundy class is taught by Mrs Cowdrith and Mrs Kamanyire.

Ruby class is taught by Mr Hanson.

There are three fantastic teaching assistants who work across both classes: Mrs Graham, Mrs Ruiz and Ms Wilding.

Flights of Wonder

Who were the pioneers of flight?

This half-term we will be learning about flight. In History we will learn about the pioneers of flight and use skills of observation to find information from sources. In Science, we will explore the Uses of Every Day Materials. We will learn about natural and man-made materials, consider the properties of materials and their uses, and carry out investigations. In English, we will study a range of fiction and non-fiction texts about flight. The children will write their own narratives and produce non-fiction texts.


General Information

Book-bags should be brought into school every day: we encourage children to be as independent as possible and to remember their book-bag for themselves.

We hear children read in Guided Reading sessions, and individually at other times.

Children are encouraged to change their books regularly.

Our PE days are;

    Burgundy Class: Monday (indoor) and Wednesday (outdoor)

Ruby Class: Monday (indoor) and Wednesday (outdoor)

On PE days please come to school wearing your Morley PE kit (see here for more details). A PE kit consists of: T-shirt, shorts, long-sleeved top and jogging bottoms, spare socks, trainers or plimsolls.  Long hair must be tied back and no jewellery please.

PE lesson picChildren will need to bring a filled and named water bottle to school each day. The class tap is drinking water and the children are able to fill their bottles as needed.

Homework will be set on Wednesday via Google Classroom, to be submitted by the following Tuesday. Login details can be found in your child’s reading record. Homework will be acknowledged by the class teacher on Google Classroom. 



Currently we are expecting children to take the SATs (Standard Assessment Tests) in May 2021, however government policies do change, so if we hear differently we will let you know!

The Year Two team will provide you with more information on how we deliver the tests nearer the time, however, in the meantime you might like to watch this short clip by Micheal Tidd (Headteacher from Surrey & blogger on Primary Assessment) which covers information about the SATS from May 2017.
