Year 2 2022 - 2023

Welcome to Year 2


School meals and snack

Lunch and snack ordering systems remain the same; as we continue to operate a cashless system. Snack must be ordered and paid for via the School Gateway App. Fruit will also be available each day at no charge. Children can also choose from a hot school dinner or a sub bar each day (menus available on the school website) free of charge.

Homework and expectations

It is expected that by the end of year 2 all children know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables (including division facts) and be able to count forwards and backwards in steps of 2, 3, 5 and 10. Times Tables Rock Stars will be used and you will find passwords in reading diaries.

There is a list of words that children should be able to spell by the end of key stage 1. These will be provided in September. Children must practice these spellings at home, while work in school is planned carefully to give plenty of opportunities to use and apply them. Similarly, during the course of the year, children will be taught a number of spelling rules for which many of these words apply.

As always at Cledford, the expectation is that all children read at home with an adult at least 5 times each week and that the diary is completed for every read. Our reading diaries can also be used as a means of communication between home and school to pass on messages or ask questions. Children are responsible for selecting their own reading book of their level and will be shown where to choose these from at the beginning of the school year.

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be handed in the following Wednesday. This will be a range of tasks related to our current learning. Weekly spellings will also be in their homework book. Don't forget to keep a copy of your spellings at home so that you can learn them after handing your homework book in.


In May, year 2 children will complete their end of Key Stage 1 SATs. The results of these will be reported to parents/carers at the end of the school year. There will be a parent meeting where you can find out more information about Key Stage 1 SATs. Year 2 pupils will also sit a formal phonics screening test in Decemebr 2021.

Educational Visits

We plan to go on several educational visits throughout the year, including a residential to Fox Howl in Delamere Forest. Further details will be sent out about these visits and there will a parent meeting where you can find out more information about the residential closer to the time.
