Year 2 Rabbits


Year 2 Rabbits Information sheet


Hello, my name is Miss Harlowe and I will be your child's class teacher in Year Two. Learning will also be supported by Miss Morris. I hope you have all had a fantastic summer break and I look forward to hearing all about it!


During the first half term our learning will be based around the theme "An Eye on London". In Literacy we will be looking at Paddington Bear, the characters, setting and other features of the story. As part of this topic we will look at London landmarks during our world-wide learning lessons.


In science, the focus will be ‘animals including humans’. This topic will mainly focus on keeping healthy. We will carry out a range of investigations as part of our science work.


In Numeracy this half term we will be focusing on place value and addition and subtraction. We will look at the makeup of numbers in terms of tens and ones. In Year Two there is also a strong focus on children learning and understanding their 2, 5 and 10 times facts. We will practice these as part of our maths lessons and it would be a great help if you could encourage these at home.


Your child will have two PE lessons a week so please ensure your child has their PE kit in school. Mr Simons will teach the P.E every Thursday. Homework will be sent out on a Friday to be returned the following Thursday. As part of homework, weekly spellings will be given out, these will also be tested on the following Thursday.


We expect your child to bring their book bag and reading book to school every day. We will change the book at school once your child has finished reading it. You can help your child by them reading to you at home using their school reading book. This should be recorded in their reading record.


If you have any worries or concerns do not hesitate to contact myself or Miss Morris in the playground or you can book an appointment after school. Further information can be found on our class page on the school website: 


I look forward to an enjoyable year

Miss Harlowe and Miss Morris




Our library day is every Thursday. Please ensure your child has their library book in school ready to be renewed or changed. 

Homework and spellings will be sent out every Friday to be completed by the following Thursday.
