Year 2 Bulletin

For week commencing Sunday, 29th April


Literacy takes a non-fiction route this week. Alongside our topic unit of explorers, we will read and explore the biographies of some famous pioneers. The children will practise their reading and comprehension skills. They will make predictions, answer simple retrieval questions and more complex inference questions and they will make summaries about what they have read. By the end of the week the children should have learned new explorer facts and been able to record them effectively.

Which super vocabulary have you found in your reading books this week? Did you find any words that you didn’t know before?


Our focus this week is on time. The children must learn to tell the time at o’ clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past. More able pupils will be able to read anytime in 5 minute intervals.

Ask your child: how many hours in one day? How many seconds in one minute? How many minutes in one hour? How many days in one week?


Our sewing journey will continue until each class has completed their sewing project. Watch out for the finished product.

Alongside this they will begin a few weeks of investigating the sea and sea explorers. This begins with a science experiment related to floating and sinking and a revisit to our atlases to recall the continents and oceans of the world.

Pioneer’s Day

Please get those Pioneer projects started! On Tuesday afternoon, 13th June, the parents will be invited into school to attend the children’s own Waxwork Museum. The children should begin to research a famous explorer or pioneer at home, someone that they would like to be on the day.

Each child will dress up as their explorer/pioneer and should have prepared 5 questions at home. They must learn some facts about their explorer so that they can answer these questions.

Children’s jackets/jumpers

While it is hotting up outside, the children often feel a little colder inside under the AC units. It is not always possible to turn the AC off, when many of the children are still warm, so children should continue to bring their over wear in case they are cold in class.


Swimming lessons have now commenced for some classes. Please remember that swimming is part of the curriculum and it is expected that all children will swim. A doctor’s note must be provided if your child is unable to join their session. They MUST wear a swim cap in the pool and must be able to dress and undress themselves quickly to be ready for their slot.
