Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 2023-2024!

I am so excited to have you all back at school for a new year! I know you are going to make a spectacular Year 2 class. I am looking forward to watching you grow and develop this year. We have worked hard to provide a range of areas to our classroom including our popular exotic themed reading area, where the children enjoy getting lost in a book! We also have our calm corner where our children can escape to if they need to have a quiet moment to themselves. There will be lots of teachers supporting you with your learning this year.


Mrs Carlisle will be teaching you Art and DT


Mr Forbes-Jones will be teaching you computing


Mrs Ridings will be teaching you PE


Miss Turner will be teaching you science


OLOL Music company will begin to teach Music this year and this will take place on a Thursday.


Please ensure that your PE kit is in for a Wednesday with outdoor PE kit in school with a pair of trainers as we will be using the field for PE lessons too.


Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be back in for the following Wednesday and this will include Maths, Reading and Spellings each week. Spelling tests will be on a Wednesday.


As always, if there are any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


Thank you for your continued support,


Mr Forbes-Jones.

Street Detectives

Our topic for this term is called Street Detectives. We will be building on our knowledge from year one about where we live and we will be finding the human and physical features of our local area using basic geographical vocabulary. We will also be exploring significant events, people and places in Shirebrook.
