Year Two

Miss Archbald


Welcome to Year 2!

We are all raring to go and excited about a busy year ahead. Here you will find important information and what we have been up to.


So far we have been settling in well and getting used to the new routines.  We will be having lots of fun learning, new and exciting things happening throughout the year and of course producing some fantastic work!

The children will be given homework every Friday which is to be returned on a Wednesday. Spellings will be given out every Monday where they will be tested on the following Friday.

You will also find everything we will be learning this year on our class topic web, which is uploaded onto the school website. We will be beginning the year with Australia! G’day mate!

Don’t forget to check our class page regularly for updates, photographs and recounts of the activities we’ve enjoyed.


We have a busy year ahead of us and cannot wait to get started.
