Mrs Fifoot

Miss Turner

Year 2 | Our Lady and St Kenelm Catholic School

Hi everyone and welcome to Year 2. The teacher in Year 2 is Miss Turner and the teaching assistant is Miss Fifoot. 

Please check the school Facebook, Twitter and Weduc for updates and you are always welcome to contact me on Weduc should you have any questions or concerns.

We have lots of wonderful things planned for the third term in Year 2 including learning all about 'Delamere Forest'. 

Important Information:


The cost of snack remains the same at £1 each week. This provides your child with toast at play time, the children also get a selection of fruit at no extra cost. If your child wishes to bring their own snack in this must be a healthy option such as: bread sticks, fruit, vegetables etc.


Homework will be set on a Tuesday and it will be due in on the following Monday. The children will be set a selection of Maths, English and Phonics activities along with some creative tasks. 


Year 2 will have P.E on a Friday. The children will need to come to school wearing their school P.E kit which should include:

  • A blue t-shirt - available to buy from school
  • Black shorts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms (no logo or stripe)
  • Black pumps or trainers

The children can wear their school jumper or cardigan over their P.E kit. 


Children should be reading at least 4 times per week for 10 minutes or more, this is extremely important as it lays the foundations for future learning.  The children will be sent home with 2 reading books, one is a Phonic book which is at the children's current level and the other is a 'Reading for Pleasure book', the children will need support with this book. Once your child has read please sign their reading record in order for them to work towards earning their reading certificates. 

Water Bottles:

Water bottles should be brought in every day and should contain only water or flavoured water.   

Our Curriculum:       


This term we will be focusing on the book 'The Last Wolf' by Mini Grey. The children will learn how to write a letter. 


As a school this year, we are all continuing to follow 'Power Maths'. Our maths topics this half term will include: 'Time' and 'Weight, Volume and Temperature'.  The children will also be reinforcing their knowledge of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We will also be developing reasoning and problem solving skills.  


The children will be taught Phonics each day and a reading session will also be taught each day. 


Our Science topic in Year 2 this term will be 'Plants'. The children will learn all about what plants need to grow and the plant life cycle.


This half term in computing we will be learning about 'Digital Music'

What a Wonderful World: 

We will be learning all about 'Delamere Forest' for our Art and Geography.


We will be doing 'Bat and Ball skills' in our PE sessions. 


School Uniform:

Children should come to school each day in their full school uniform unless stated otherwise. School uniform should include: 

  • School jumper or cardigan
  • White shirt or white polo shirt
  • Tie (colour based on the House your child is in)
  • Black/grey trousers, dress, shorts or skirt 
  • Blue gingham summer dress
  • Black shoes with a black sole

Children should not come to school wearing trainers
