Year 2 - Astronauts

Welcome to Year Two Astronauts 

Our class is taught by Mrs Moody with Mrs Western teaching us on Fridays. Mrs McKenna is our amazing, full time class teaching assistant. We also have the brilliant Mrs Brook-Smith who is an additional teaching assistant.

Mrs McKenna looks after your children at lunch time. Mr Ashraf is our fantastic P.E teaching assistant and Mrs Saleem supports some of our children too.


Keep checking this page for updates on your child's learning and lots of photographs to show you what they have been learning.


If you have any problems or concerns please speak to one of our members of staff either when dropping your child off or picking them up. 


We look forward to working with you this year.

General Information

Below are some general reminders and some information that will be of use during the year.



Children will receive their spellings on a Thursday afternoon and will be tested on these the following Thursday. In addition to spellings and daily reading, your child will also bring home timetables facts or similar to learn for a test the following Thursday.


We cannot emphasise how important it is to read with your child daily and discuss the text. We ask you to do this little and often and recommend ten minutes a night.  Your child's reading book will be changed once a week. Please ensure the book is brought to school every day


Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school. Our PE lessons will be on Monday mornings and Friday afternoons this year, although these times are sometimes subject to change at short notice. Children wearing earrings in school on these days must be able to remove them independently or they will not be able to take part. Please also ensure children with long hair have it tied up for these days.


Other useful information

Please ensure all your child’s clothing is clearly labelled as things can easily get misplaced. Please ensure your child wears a warm, waterproof coat and sensible shoes. Fresh fruit is provided for all KS1 children during morning break. 


We thank-you for your continued support and will do our best to make sure this year is a happy, enjoyable and successful year for your child as they move through Year 2. If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to pop in at the end of the school day or leave a message via the school office.

Look at us reciting The Owl and the Pussycat poem - we made up our own actions to help us learn it off by heart too.

Gymnastics is our unit of work for this half term in P.E. The children are enjoying learning different jumps, rolls and balances.

We made fantastic fire engines for our DT unit - 'moving mechanisms'

The children did an absolutely fantastic job performing for our Christmas Nativity Assembly. We are so proud of them.

Below are some useful websites you may want to use at home with your child to support their learning.

Science fun learning about germs and how easily they spread. We then conducted an experiment to find out the best way to wash our hands.

The children have loved making abstract maps in our Art lessons. They used cellophane to create a stained glass effect.

Fun in Science! We have been learning all about staying fit and healthy. The children enjoyed making their own obstacle courses.
