What will we be learning this year?

We are exploring lots of exciting topics this year so please take a look at our curriculum overview to see what we are learning each term. It would be great if you could do some research at home throughout the year and share fun facts with the class!    

Practise these tricky words as much as you can!

Please read through the transition booklet to find out more about Year 2 at Holy Spirit: Transition booklet

Our Proud Cloud

If you complete any extra learning activities or research at home that you are really proud of, please bring it in to show us as we want to celebrate everyone’s super work!

Celebration Board

Remember that if you show our school values then you may be showcased on our class celebration board. Well done to the children who have made it onto the board this week!


  • You all now have a red homework file to keep your homework information and spellings in.
  • Spellings- The weekly spelling quiz will be based on Y1 and 2 ‘tricky words’ and/or the phonics sounds we are learning that week. Please bring your file in every Friday so I can give you next week’s spelling sheet and see your super spelling practice.
  • Reading- We will soon be sending out our new reading books that match our phonics scheme at school. Until then please read every day after school or before bed. Read to and withsomeone at home EVERYDAY.


Every Thursday I will set some fun homework tasks for you on the website EducationCity. You will have a week to complete the weekly tasks. Your login details are attached to your homework file- all you need is your special username and password to get onto your account. As well as the homework tasks, you can play games and complete extra learning activities on the website whenever you like! Impress me by challenging yourself! This will also be used in case of further bubble closures or lockdowns to ensure learning continues.
