Welcome to Year 2

Miss Farnsworth, Miss White, Mrs Tucker, Mrs Brown and Mrs Green would like to welcome 2AF and 2NW to our website. We can't wait to see the amazing learning everyone will complete this year. 

The Year 2 team have been so impressed by all the hard work and activities that have been completed at home.  Please continue the hard work we love seeing it and hearing from you! 

Go to

 https://www.sherrier.leics.sch.uk/year-groups/year-2/online-work-2  for your weekly home learning activities. 

May update 

From Monday 4th May we will be sending out weekly learning ideas for you to follow if you wish. They will be sent out on parent pay and uploaded onto the online learning area of our website https://www.sherrier.leics.sch.uk/year-groups/year-2/online-work-2 ready for a Monday morning. 

They cover a combination of online computer learning and non-computer based activities which can be completed in the workbooks sent home in March. 

By no means do we expect all of these activities to be completed but we wanted to ensure that there was plenty to keep us all busy and learning. 


 March update 

In March your child should now have come home with their own home learning pack containing many different activities to keep them learning whilst at home. If this has not be given for whatever reason please contact the school office or your class teacher to arrange for it to be collected.

We miss you all lots Year 2, but remember this is not goodbye but see you soon! Keep Safe. Image result for smiling face

P.E. Kit 

Year 2 will have PE on Monday and Thursday afternoons. 

They will need the following kit:

  • Black shorts 
  • White t-shirt
  • Plimsolls

There will be indoor and outdoor PE so please make sure your child has appropriate kit for both. When the weather gets colder, this should include trousers and a long-sleeved top like a sweatshirt.  

For PE lessons, hair must be tied back and earrings removed. Alternatively, you could send your child with micropore tape to cover their earrings.  

Our Homework

These folders contain X-Factor sheets for your child to fill in at home. Once your child reaches the end of the new rounds, they will go back to the times tables round they were on last year. Once you have completed the X Factor example please mark it with your children. They will then receive a merit in school when they hand it in. If you have any questions then please ask. We hope that learning new facts and earning more certificates will really help them all.

Year 2 will continue to have vocabulary homework in the form of fridge words. We ask that the children discuss the meanings of these words and how they link to our topic. 

Homework this week:

  • Reading at least three times a week (filling in the Kluwell reading booklet)
  • Complete the X-Factor example sheet
  • Fridge Words- to discuss at home.

making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live

Our Christian Value in Year 2!

This year, Year Two will be working  as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Courage". Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to be a courageous in class, on the playground and at home. If your child impresses you with how courageous they've been at home do share this with us by making a note in their Boomerang book so that we can celebrate it in class.
In class we will be talking about the value of courage...
   Courage to own up when you are in the wrong
   Courage to say 'no' when everyone else is pressing you to do something you do not want to do
   Courage to stick at a task even when it is taking time and is beginning to become boring or difficult
   Courage to be first to volunteer or stand up and be counted
   Courage to admit you don't know or understand something
   Courage to stand by your beliefs despite mockery or being in a minority
   Courage to take part in something, to give it a go, although you are fearful and unsure of yourself

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh (by A.A. Milne)
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.C.S. Lewis
