Welcome to Yellow Class.

In Year 2 we are the Superheroes!  

Come and visit 'Hero Headquarters', to find out what we are learning about.


We enjoy completing Maths games and puzzles on the iPads and finding the answers to really tricky calculations.  We really love our new problem solving challenges, where we can show off our learning and understanding of different mathematical concepts.

In English we will be reading ‘The Jolly Postman’ by Janet and Allen Ahlberg.  We will be concentrating on the story, letter writing, making leaflets and also fact files.  We will be also be exploring a story called ‘Lizzie and The Birds’  where we will learn lots of grammar terminology and use this in our writing including: commas for lists, apostrophes for possession, adding suffixes to root words and using subordinating conjunctions.  We will continue to work hard on spelling key words and forming letters correctly.


This half term our topic is called ‘What will we see on our journey around the world?'. We will be travelling all around the world looking at the human and physical features of the places we visit starting with our local area, the rainforest, the seaside and large cities across the world.

Our SEAL topic this half term is ‘Going for Goals’.

In an afternoon we enjoy doing lots of different things including, Science, History, Geography Art, Music, PSHE and Computing.  We like to use our English and Maths skills in these lessons, to show off how much we've remembered, learnt and understood.
