TA: Mrs. Reilly


Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back after the summer holidays, we hope you had lots of fun and are ready to continue learning. We have missed you all very much and are excited to continue where we left off. I am Mrs. Harland, the Year 2 teacher this year, and we are very lucky to get to work with the wonderful and talented Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Reilly too!

I will be teaching you every day, except Tuesday afternoons, when Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. Reilly and our sports coach Danielle will lead our lessons. Mrs. Robinson will work with us every morning, and Mrs. Reilly every afternoon.


Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Children will need a named kit in school at all times. We send home kit each half term to get washed. If your child is unable to take part in PE for medical reasons, please let us know so we can plan an alternative PE activity for them.

Homework, Spellings and Reading

Homework will be sent home on Fridays. Each week we will send home a Learning Log task and a piece of Numeracy. Homework is due back by Wednesday.

Please read with your child as often as possible, every day if you can. Ideally, all children need to read a minimum of 3 times a week. Please write a comment in the yellow diary e.g., Did they enjoy it? How well are they blending? Could they retell the story? Could they discuss the character’s behaviour?

The more practice your child gets, the quicker your child will become fluent. We will encourage your child to change their reading book twice a week and we will read with them at least once a week. Please keep the reading book and yellow reading diary in their book bag and send it in every day.

So what's in store?

Our topic title is ‘Where do owls live’. It is a topic linked to our English book, The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark (by Jill Tomlinson). We will learn all about these magnificent creatives and where their habitats are. Also in English, we will be sharing a fabulous book called Troll Swap (by Leigh Hodgkinson).

In Guided Reading, we will be reading the texts The Troll by Julia Donaldson and Above and Below by Hanako Clulow. These books link to both our English texts, and our wider curriculum lessons, and will help us to develop our understanding of the topic. We can't wait to share these exciting books with you.

Phonics Screening Check

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and schools being closed for some of last year, the Phonics Screening Check, which the children should have completed in Summer term of Year 1, was cancelled. It has been rescheduled for the Autumn term of this year, and as such, all the Year 2 children will be taking part in the Phonics Check before Christmas this term. We will be practising lots in class, to make sure that the children haven't forgotten anything they have already covered, and may send home flashcards for the children to practise with you. Any support that you can give the children at home is greatly appreciated! If you are concerned at all about the Phonics Screening Check, please come and speak to one of us, or drop us an email.


We regularly update the school's Twitter feed with what our Year 2 class get up to. Please check out our tweets, follow us, and give us a like!




If you have any questions (however big or small) please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Mrs. Harland, Mrs. Robinson and Mrs. Reilly.
