End of Year 2 Objectives

These are the objectives that we aim to meet by the end of Year 2 for the key areas. 


Autumn Term 2022

We are looking forward to a new school year and a new term with lots of exciting work we will be doing!

I would just like to remind you that children must have their diaries in school every day, and should be bringing in homework, PE kit and Forest School clothes on the appropriate days.


Topics this half term

Our first topic this half term is “All about me” where in our Geography lessons, we will be learning about the countries of the UK, continents and oceans.

In Science, we will be learning about the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival and noticing that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults.

In Art, we will be developing our sketching skills and creating a cubist self-portrait inspired by Pablo Picasso!




Please make sure that you read with your child at least 4 times per week.   Rewards are given at the end of each half term for children who read 4 times or more each week but this must be signed by an adult in reading diaries.  Reading diaries are checked every Friday.





P.E Kit

Every Tuesday and Thursday, children will be taking part in P.E. sessions. Please make sure that your child is wearing the appropriate, labelled kit on this day!




Forest School

Forest school will take place every other Friday afternoon.  Though we are trying to limit the amount of belongings brought in from home, your child must bring in a pair of wellies with their name on in order to participate in the Forest School sessions. If they wish, they may bring in some over trousers and other waterproofs which can be worn over the top of the school uniform, along with scarves, gloves and hats in the colder months.




Homework will be given out on Fridays via a homework book. This needs to be completed to the best of your child's abilities - the homework intends to revise work already completed in lessons but if your child needs support or guidance please show this in a different colour where possible! Feel free to make any notes on it so that we know how to support them further in their learning of the topic. The completed homework will then need to be submitted to school on the following Thursday.

I know the children work hard at school and so doing their homework will earn them Class Dojo points.



Times Tables

In Year 2, children need to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables! Please try and practise this at home too. This could be counting steps in multiples while walking or going up the stairs, counting money or even just making a poster to have them displayed around the house!




SATS Testing  

The end of Key Stage One SATs are scheduled to take place in May 2023. More information will follow at a later date. Please don't worry!





As this is a SATs year at school, it's important to keep learning and revising what we've learned, particularly if you are unable to attend school. Below are some of our favourite links we recommend to support learning at home.
