We're working hard as a team, together with our parents and families, to raise school attendance - it's gone up from 89.7% at the start of the year to 94.2% this week! Well done, but let's keep working together to raise it even higher!!

Jasmine class - Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

Jasmine Class


Teacher: Mr Richards

Teaching Assistants: Miss Aspinall and Mrs Thorpe 

Welcome to Jasmine Class!


Here you will find the latest updates of our work in class and any important information that you may need to help support children's learning at home.

Important Notes for Jasmine Class:

  • PE: Every Tuesday and Thursday. Children should now have a PE kit in school to change into. On Tuesday's we also have forest school, so please send your children into school in suitable shoes (trainers or wellies if it has been raining) for this. 
  • Reading: Every child will have a reading book matched to their current reading ability to take home. We ask all parents to read with their child for at least 15 minutes each night and to ask children questions about the book whilst doing so. Please then sign in their reading record to let us know that this happened. Books will be changed once a child has been heard reading that book twice (this allows them the chance to develop their comprehension as well as decoding of words) by either a parent or member of staff.

Summer Term


In English this term we will mainly be looking at the fairytale 'Little Red Riding Hood' and the children will use their writing skills to update and 'improve' the story, section by section. The children will also write a recount of their trip to Newarke Houses Museum and a letter to their new teacher at their new junior school. We will also be focusing on learning spelling rules this term, in particular when to use different suffixes.


In Maths this term, we study measuring in different ways, including length, height, capacity, mass and temperature. We will then finish by learning about position and direction.


During Science we will explore different materials and their properties, resulting in the children using their scientific knowledge to test and choose the most suitable material to design and make a 'new bookbag'. Then we will move on to look at plants, and what they need to survive . In History, we are starting a new topic based on the question 'How have toys changed within living memory?'. As part of this, we will have a very exciting trip to Newarke Houses Museum for a toy workshop, where we will be able to learn about (and play with!) lots of toys from different eras.


Other subjects will include:

- In PE we will look at invasion games and learn the basics of basketball.

- In Computing we will learn how to paint and design on a laptop.

- In Music we will compose our own pieces of music and learn how to use notes to write our own music.

- We'll also have RE, PSHE, Art and Forest School activities too!


It's going to be a very busy term!


Year 2 Curriculum:


Below you will find our Long Term Curriculum Map which outlines the whole year's programme of study.  This is then broken down into Knowledge Organisers which gives specific information about what we will be teaching and learning in each Foundation Subject.  


If you have any questions about Jasmine Class or curriculum content, please feel free to email the office or speak to Mr Richards at the end of the day.
