Holmgate Primary School and Nursery

Welcome to Year 2


The adults working in Year 2 are Mrs McLellan and

Mrs Atkinson

Miss Peverelle will be teaching Year 2 every Thursday.

PE will take place every Tuesday and will be taught by Ash


Could you please make sure all uniform and coats are clearly named to help the children look after

their own things?  If it has a name in and is misplaced it will eventually make its way back to your child, if not

it may not.


Fresh fruit is available for the children each day, however, children can bring their own healthy snack

to school for break time.  They are allowed to bring a 'treat' on Fridays.


The children in Key Stage 1 will be following the whole Read Write Inc. programme.  This will cover

phonics, reading comprehension, punctuation, grammar and writing.  Each child will be assessed every

half term and placed in the appropriate group that will build their confidence, whilst moving them on in

their learning.  The targeted learning will mean they will work in smaller, more focused groups.

Please listen to your child read at least three times a week and fill in an entry in their Reading Record Book.


We will begin by focusing on place value, which underpins everything else we do throughout Year 2.  To

begin with, the children will be revising many of the topics taught last year (with numbers up to 20)

to help consolidate their learning.  This will include counting forwards and backwards, ordering and

finding one more / one less.  We will then move on to addition and subtraction, number bonds (to 20),

geometry (2D and 3D shapes) and place value with numbers up to 20 - which will take us up to the

Christmas break.


Please ensure that a full PE kit is kept in school ready for PE days.

Year 2 have PE every Tuesday and every other Thursday.


We will be using Seesaw again this year in order for parents / carers to be able to see some of the work 

that the children have been completing during lesson time.  Seesaw will also be used to allow teachers

to communicate with parents more easily and may be used to occasionally set work for the children.

 Please let school know if you are struggling to connect to Seesaw so we can help you with this.
