Merry Christmas!


Only a week to go until the big day! The children are very excited and we can’t believe that this term is nearly over.

We’re sure that you’ll agree that the Christmas Nativity Concert was fantastic and the children all did amazingly to learn their lines and all of the lyrics to the songs.

The children really enjoyed the pantomime today and were a great audience. They really got involved and had a lot of fun!


Wednesday 19th December

The children may wear their Christmas jumper. It is also Christmas dinner day. Please don’t forget to join us at the Christmas Fair after school too.

End of term

Christingle service will be held at school on Friday morning. Christingle packs can be purchased from the school office or will be sold at the Christmas Fair. Your child should bring this in with them to school on Friday morning.


We finish for the end of term at 1.30pm on Friday 21st December.

Thank you all so much for your support this term. We hope that you all have a lovely break with your families and we look forward to welcoming the children back in 2019!

Happy Half Term!


We have had a busy but very enjoyable first half term in Year 2. It has flown by so fast but the children have wowed us with their enthusiasm and fantastic attitude to their learning both at home and at school. Thank you for your support with this.


Thank you for coming to visit us in Pudding Lane this morning. I think you will agree that the children did a fantastic job of being leaders and discussing the question ‘Who was to blame for the Great Fire of London?’


We hope you all have a fantastic half term with your children and we look forward to seeing you on Monday 5th November.


The Year 2 Team 🙂

Welcome to Year 2


Year 2

We hope that the children have enjoyed their first couple of weeks back as much as we have! We are quickly getting to know the children and have been impressed by their attitude towards their learning.


This term our topic is The Great Fire of London! We will be learning different facts, writing diaries, looking at maps and developing lots of our historical enquiry skills to help us to answer ‘Who was to blame for The Great Fire of London?’

We are looking forward to the History off the Page Day and our ‘living museum’. We can’t wait to see the children (and staff!) dressed up for the day.

Forest School

We will be going to Forest School on a Tuesday so please make sure all children have named wellies in school.


We will have PE on a Thursday. Please ensure all kit and bags are labelled with names and that the children have spare socks too.


We will shortly be putting up a signup sheet for class helpers on our notice board, please sign up here if you would like to help in class. Thank you for your kind offers of help so far – we really appreciate it!


We will also be sending home Rainbow Words with a letter reminding / explaining how these work. Please practise these at home with your child.

Thank you for your support,

Summer time!


Wormley’s Got Talent 

Auditions will be held in our houses during the afternoon of Monday 2nd July. 3 acts will then be chosen to compete in the final on Friday 13th July at 1.30pm.

If your child’s act requires costumes or props then please bring these in.

Year 2 trip

On Tuesday 3rd July Year 2 will be visiting Southend Sealife Centre to enhance our learning about habitats. Please provide your child with a packed lunch in a disposable plastic bag, a disposable water bottle and ensure they have a hat and sun cream applied.

Summer concert- Tuesday 24th July 1.30pm

This year’s theme is dance styles. We have chosen ‘Disco’. The children will need to be provided with:

Boys- Black shorts/trousers and a short sleeved white shirt

Girls- black shorts/leggings and a sparkly top.

Costumes will need to be brought in a named carrier bag on Friday 20th July.

A note will be sent home in book bags.

The summer concert will be followed by a summer fair on the field.


In Maths we are focusing on fluency within the four main calculations e.g subtraction, addition, multiplication and division. Please ensure you are practising your times tables at home each week. The aim is for your child to recall these quickly and fluently.

In English we are learning a story of ‘Anancy and and the magic pot’ linking to our Caribbean Geography topic.  The children will have the opportunity to write their own folktale focusing on using a range of punctuation accurately.

Our afternoon sessions will focus on a secret Caribbean island. The children will find out about human and physical features, different types of jobs and houses and compare these with Wormley. We will also be creating our own moving image using a lever as part of D&T.

In R.E we will be exploring ultimate questions and thinking about what Christians think about God.

School holidays

We break up for the summer holidays on Wednesday 25th July at 1.30pm.

Year 2 Summer Update



Year 2 SATS will commence weeks beginning 14th and 21st May.

Please find a timetable below of which test the children will be sitting on which day.

Test: Date:
Arithmetic test Tuesday 15th May
Reading Paper 1 Thursday 17th May
Reading paper 2 Monday 21st May
Reasoning paper Tuesday 22nd May
Spelling & Grammar Wednesday 23rd May

The children have been working so hard and this is a chance to show off what they have learnt in year 1 and 2. Please note the tests will only form a small part of their day, the rest of the day will be normal curriculum time (plus juice and biscuits!)


Topics this term are ‘Habitats and living things’ and ‘Wonderful Wormley’.

The children have really enjoyed exploring their local area focusing on shops and amnesties and investigating which insects and mini-beasts are within the school grounds.


Our class test this half term has been George and the Knight. The children have further developed their reading skills and this week have produced some fantastic informal and formal letters taking on the role of a character in the text.


In Maths we have been revising previous learning for example place value methods to solve calculation and applying this to word problems. Please continue to practise the times tables at home.

Hot weather

Please ensure that sun cream is applied before school and that children bring a hat and a water bottle to school every day.

Royal Wedding Tea Party

To celebrate the Royal wedding as a school we are throwing a tea party in the afternoon of Friday 18th May. Please make a food/drink contribution and hand these to the class teacher or members of staff at the office. Children may wear red, white or blue to school this day.

Sports day

Letters will be sent home reminding your child which colour T-shirt to wear on Friday 25th May 2018. KS1 events will start at 1.30pm We will look forward to hearing you cheer us on!
