Year 2

Welcome to Year 2


We look forward to working with all parents and children this year. There are 5 teachers:

Mrs. Sofroniou – Snake Class/ Achievement year leader

Miss Bashir & Miss Juggernauth - Chameleon Class

Miss Fuller - Jaguar Class

Miss Laksham - Hedgehog Class

Mr Deller - Bear Class


We are committed to providing quality education for children to reach their full potential and achieve success.  We are here to ensure all children feel valued and secure in their classes. We want Year 2 to be a friendly, welcoming year group where the children feel happy and safe.

We will be using the indoor and outdoor area to learn.  Children will work as part of a small group and as part of a whole class. We plan for our children’s learning through topics.








Sports Day

This half-term Year 2 enjoyed taking part in Sports Day. They took part in loads of different events such as javelin, ladders and egg and spoon race. It was a lovely, hot day but the Year 2 children behaved very well and had an amazing time. Year 6 children helped them to learn about the different events. What amazing helpers they were!

This half-term Year 2 have been learning all about Traditional Tales. We have learnt to write famous traditional tales like The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks as well as writing our own versions of both of these stories. In some of stories, Goldilocks got to meet The Big Bad Wolf, The Evil Queen or Cinderella and Prince Charming. Year 2 are turning into amazing authors. What superb writing they have done!





This half-term Year 2 have brought their favourite traditional tales characters to life; by creating amazing sculptures using clay. They created their own designs, made and painted them and have put them on display in their classrooms. Year 2 are becoming inspirational artists and designers. What superb sculptures they have created!





This half-term Year 2 have been learning to spell tricky words. They have been using a range of techniques to help them ensure their amazing writing is also accompanied by superb spelling. Take a look at the list of words we are learning to spell this half term. Year 2 are becoming superstar spellers. What spectacular spelling they have done!
