Year Two - Haystacks

Welcome to Year 2

Dear Parents/Carers,


It’s been a very strange end to this school year, however, we will be doing everything we can to ensure that your children settle back into the school routine in September and have a happy, fun filled Year 2.


As the children move into Year 2, they are beginning a very important and exciting time in their education. We look forward to seeing each and every one of them grow and flourish as the year progresses. The Year 2 class name is Haystacks. Working closely along-side us this year we have Miss Mossop and Mrs Little. Mrs Norris will also be working with the children on a Tuesday morning covering PPA. We are also very lucky to be supported by Miss Temple-cox and Mrs Batey for some afternoons. 


We have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned over the next year and we will share our learning with you on this page. We will also use this page to share our Knowledge Organisers for History, Geography and Science. These will detail vocabulary and knowledge for each of the subject areas.


Our topics for the year are:

Autumn term – Made in Cumbria

Spring term – Explorers and Adventurers

Summer term – Seaside Rescue


The children will continue to receive homework weekly to support the learning in class. This will include talk homework, spellings and maths. Please help your child to be organised and remember to bring their reading book and Home/School book to school every day. We will try to hear your child read twice a week, so of course having their reading book with them every day is important. It is such an enormous benefit to your child if you could hear them read their books every night at home. Please use your child’s home/school diary as a communication between home and school and record any comments about your child’s reading in there too.


The PE timetable has not been finalised yet but as soon as we know the details we will share this with you. Throughout the year the children will get the opportunity to work with a range of coaches as well as trying new sports. Please ensure your child has their correct PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled. We will be outside for one of our PE sessions so a pair of joggers/tracksuit bottoms/leggings and a jumper/hoody would be useful as the weather turns colder. All kits will remain in school for the half-term. If your child wears earrings please can you either remove them on P.E. days or provide tape to cover them.


The children need to have a clear water bottle to keep in school. We will send it home on a regular basis so that it can be cleaned. Please remember that we are a NUT FREE school.


A PowerPoint giving you more information about our topics, classroom and routines is attached below.


We hope that you and your children have a fantastic year. If you have any queries or concerns at any time please do not hesitate to contact us. Haystacks class email is  We are very pleased and excited to be working with your children and are looking forward to a wonderful year.


Have a great summer and we will see you in September!
