Chestnut Class (Year 2)

Welcome to Chestnut Class: 2021 - 2022

Year 2

Miss Sanderson    Miss Cooper


Here you will find the Curriculum Overview for Year 2 for 2021-22.  This gives a broad overview of the themes and topics covered in year and relate back to the National Curriculum.

Welcome to the Autumn term. In Year 2, our topic this half term is 'The Place Where I Live'. 

This topic is Geography and History based. We will be learning about the physical and human features around school, as well as looking at what Preston was like in the past. 


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 practise at home would be helpful. 


PE will be on Tuesdays & Thursdays so you will need to come to school in your PE kit on those days.  


Home Reading

Don't forget to read regularly at home and post your comments onto Showbie. 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. 


Class Novel 

This half term, Year 2 will be reading 'Scaredy Squirrel' by Melanie Watt and 'Mr Majeika' by Humphrey Carter.
