Dahl Class Year 2

Welcome to Dahl Class!


You can use this page of the website to find out about Year 2's weekly timetable, what topics we will be studying during the current term and throughout the year, and find out what each week's homework is.


Homework is due in on a Friday. Reading books will be changed on a Wednesday and a Friday when possible, but please ensure that your child brings their reading book in to school every day. Friday will also be PE days so please ensure that your child's trainers or plimsolls are in school, their hair is tied up and if possible earrings are removed. 


We will also add details of the fun activities we have been taking part in.


We hope the children will have a fantastic year with us in Year 2. 

If you have any questions please do come and see us.

Miss Orpin and Ms Leadbeater.


This is your homework for the week. If you need any of the sheets again please come and ask!

This term in English we are reading:


  • "Your Fantastic Elastic Brain" by JoAnn Deak.
  • "The Jolly Postman" by Janet & Allan Ahlberg.
  • "The Day the Crayons Quit" by Drew Daywalt.


Please DO NOT read these books with your children as it will ruin the slow build up and surprise we use in our English lessons. 


If you would like to read a similar book to your child then this term I would recommend:

  • Goldilocks and the three bears
  • The Gingerbread man
  • Jack and the Beanstalk
  • Cinderella
  • Little Red Riding Hood
  • "The Jolly Christmas Postman" by Janet & Allan Ahlberg.
  • "Meerkat Mail" by Emily Gravett.

We worked in groups to match the baby animals to their adults. We then talked about what they were all called.

In Computing we tried out a Scratch fishing game and tried to figure out how it worked.

This week in Geography we had an atlas scavenger hunt to try and find different places in the UK.
