Chestnut Class (Year 2)

Welcome to Chestnut Class

2023 - 2024

Year 2

Miss Sanderson    Miss Bayley


Here you will find the Long-Term Plan for Year 2 for 2023-24. 

This gives a broad overview of the themes and topics covered in year and relate back to the National Curriculum.

For more details about each subject being taught -  click on the Curriculum page within the Parents Section.


Our PE days are Mondays & Tuesdays


Please send your child to school in their school PE kit: red round-neck t-shirt and plain black shorts or joggers.  Children should also wear their school sweatshirt.

Black pumps are also useful or unbranded black trainers.


Please do not send your child in clothes which are not school uniform.

Please also ensure that children with pierced ears can either remove earrings themselves or cover with plasters before the start of the school day.


Home Reading

Don't forget to read regularly at home and write your comments in your child's new Home Reading Diary. Books will be changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 


Homework & Spellings

Homework and spellings will be uploaded onto Showbie every Friday. The spelling test will take place the following Friday so the children have a full week to learn them. 



In Maths, we will develop our understanding of place value using Maths No Problem. The children are currently learning their 2x, 5x and 10x tables so any extra practice at home would be helpful.
