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


Children must wear P.E kit on these days. Our school PE kit is: 


  • Red t-shirt 
  • Black shorts
  • Black pumps/ or trainers
  • Children may bring black tracksuit bottoms for outdoor sports in the winter.


From ASDA you can get 2 t-shirts, 2 pairs of shorts and pumps for under £9. 

Children should not be wearing branded clothing. 


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. 



Spellings will be handed out 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. 


Trips, Visitors and Events

Here are pictures from:

- Our visit from the Lancashire Heritage Team. We had a workshop about 'The Plague' and 'The Great Fire of London'. 

- KS1 Mini skills competition

- Our trip to Blackburn Museum for an 'Inventors & Inventions' workshop

- Our trip to Blackpool Zoo

- KS1 Football competition

- Victorian Workshop 

We made our own model of The Great Fire of London!

We invited other classes to come and see our model. We also asked our parents to come and look too!
