St Gregory's Catholic Primary School ‘We love, learn and grow with Jesus.’

Year 2

Welcome to Year Two!

Our teacher is Miss Smith and our teaching assistant is Miss Anna.

We are so excited to share lots of interesting information and exciting photos about what we have been learning. Please scroll down to look at our latest photos and information. 



Important Information:

Book change day is a Wednesday: your child will bring home two new books which will be changed on a weekly basis. Please re-read these books to support your child with building up their fluency and confidence in word reading. If you would like further support with strategies for supporting your child’s reading at home then please do come and see me, I am more than happy to help.

We have PE on Wednesdays - please make sure child comes to school in their full PE kit.

We have swimming on Fridays.

For homework, the children will have: a Maths activity and a grammar activity each week. This will come home every Friday and needs to be returned by the following Tuesday at the latest.

They also have a 'Brain Builders' project for this term: this is due in by Monday, 26th March.


We have been practising handwriting daily in class following the ‘cursive handwriting' format. The children are now already beginning to use some of the diagonal and horizontal strokes needed to join letters and I am very pleased with their progress with this so far. Below, there is guidance on how to form letters correctly in the cursive format if you would like to practise this further with your child at home.

The Mass. We are learning about the gestures and responses. We also learnt about the events duringThe Last Supper.

Learning homophones, to, too and two.

London's Burning! We recreated the scene in London on Sunday 2nd September 1666. The children made Stuart style houses with Mrs Evans. Once it got going, the fire spread very quickly. Luckily, Mrs McNally was on hand as our resident Fire Fighter. Everyone had a wonderful afternoon. Thank you to all the adults who helped.

Our Gospel Value this half term is 'Eloquent and Truthful'. We had a prayer service and listened to the Gospel of Matthew.

The Great Fire of London topic. We are making our own extract from Samuel Pepys diary and drawing the city of London in the style of the artist Samuel Rolle.

Using the class Maths boxes to help us with our fluency, reasoning and problem solving. September 2017

Working on our grammar. Changing verbs from present to past tense.
