St. James' CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 2

Hello and Welcome to Our Year 2 Page. Here you will find information about the topics we are learning about  as well as any other general information, such as a list of the term's spellings which are posted for download at the bottom of this page. We also have a list of ideas for home projects and stories to read. Do bring in your projects as we love to see them.


Homework will be given out every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday to received dojo points for Grit. The children will bring home spellings and a math sheet related to the topic within school. There will be 10 compulsory spellings and 10 challenge spellings. They will follow a spelling rule, pattern, phonic sounds or include high frequency words. We would encourage as many pupils as possible to complete the full twenty as it will broaden their vocabulary and help their spelling within their writing. The spelling test will be the following week. 

Year 2 Topic for Autumn 1:

This half term we will be learning all about Africa. We will look at the African culture, lifestyle and look at some of the African animals found in the wild. 

The two books we will be focusing on our Lila and the Secret of Rain and Zeraffa Giraffa. 



We have seen some great Home Projects so far and we would love to see some more.
