Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Welcome to Year 2!

Our teachers are Miss Gwilliam and Mrs Thompson.

Our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Forth and Mrs Wollacott.

Please check this web page for regular updates on exciting things happening in Year 2.

Our topic for the Spring term will be “what was life like 100 years ago?” During this topic we will be looking at the reign of Queen Victoria, life of a Victorian school child including Victorian toys and Victorian leisure. Our art work will be inspired by Victorian artist, Lowry.

A polite reminder that this term 2JT will be visiting forest school on a Friday with Miss Sibbald. 2RG will visit forest school later in the year.

Homework

Each week your child will be getting homework. The homework will be handed out on a Friday and is expected back in on the following Wednesday. Each week the homework will consist of work from either a maths or English workbook. The homework will be one or two pages from the book. As well as this we would like you to spend time reading with your child and doing some maths. The maths could consist of learning times tables (expectations by the end of year 2 is for your child to know 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables) or counting forwards and backwards below 100 in different sized steps starting from different places.
