Year 2 2020 - 2021

Year Two 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Year Two

Hello and welcome to Year Two. In Hawthorn class the class teacher is Mrs Crowther. She is assisted by Mrs Jones. In Birch class the class teacher is Miss Tomkinson and she is assisted by Mrs Jackson. Miss Dodd and Mrs Bacchus support across the two classes. Miss Jakeman will also be teaching across the year group. 

We have lots of exciting activities planned for our time in Year 2. Please use the tabs at the top of our page to find our English, Maths, Science History, Geography and Homework pages.

If you have any queries or concerns about your child's learning then please do not hesitate to speak to us, either before or after school.  


PE day is on a Friday.  Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit. This includes a Beechwood PE tshirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms and trainers or pumps. Children should come to school wearing their PE kit each Friday. 

Starting the Day

The school day will start at 8.30am and end at 3:15 for Hawthorn class. Birch class will start at 8:50 and end at 3:30. This is to allow for social distancing when dropping off and collecting. As a school we are aiming for 96% attendance so please ensure that you are in on time.

Snack and Lunch

The cost of snack is £2.50 per week and this is paid through the school Gateway app. This includes one piece of toast and a piece of fruit each day or a alternative hot snack. If you wish your child to have a snack from home, please make sure it isn't chocolate, crisps or fizzy drinks - thank you. We do offer the children free fruit each day as well, please encourage your child to accept it.


Just a reminder, your child is also entitled to a free school dinner every day whilst in Key Stage 1. Each day they can choose from our hot dinner menu or a jacket potato.


Please label all uniform including coats, P.E. kit, shoes, hats and jumpers. It is extremely difficult to locate lost uniform if it does not have a name on it. We will be labelling these items if they are not already labelled. Jumpers will need to have the Beechwood logo.

As a school, we take safeguarding very seriously. This includes internet safety and we are very aware that many children enjoy spending time on tablets, phones and even playing with Alexa!
